Police officer makes bid to reduce firearms charge

| 20/01/2014

(CNS): A serving police officer who has been charged with the illegal importation of firearms is fighting to have those charges changed. Alexander Carballo-Kelly, who has been suspended from duty, appeared in Grand Court on Friday morning but he did not enter any pleas. His lawyer asked for an adjournment as he said his client was being charged with the importation of a firearm when the items in question were not guns but parts. Carballo-Kelly is accused of importing and possession of a 12 gauge shotgun magazine in December 2012 and evading customs duty. He was bailed to appear on 31 January.
