condition he woke up several times and

but we have taken the decision not to tell
him until he is out of the danger zone,"
Dayna said. She said the family was told
by Mondesir's relatives that he drowned
after landing head first in a ditch.

family and they told us the autopsy said

A 28-year-old woman charged
with importing 19 illegal firearms
in a shipping barrel containing dog
food has been granted $350,000

from Globe Theatre Lane, San Juan,
was granted bail after she appeared be-
fore Magistrate Nanette Forde-John in
the Port-of-Spain Magistrate's Court
charged under the Customs Act with
importing prohibited items into T&T.
Dressed in a plaid shirt, jeans and her
head tied in a wrap, Dillon stood silent-
ly in the prisoner enclosure and was
not called upon to plead to the charge,
which was laid indictably.
Attorney Harricharan Cassie, who
prosecutes on behalf of the Customs
and Excise Division, did not object to
bail for Dillon, but asked Forde-John
to apply strict conditions to her bail
considering the quantity of weapons
she is alleged to have imported.
Forde-John agreed and ordered
Dillon to surrender her passport and
report to police three times weekly for
the duration of her case.

to late yesterday and was remanded

address and telephone number on the
side, contained the illegal weapons, a
large bag of dog food, two large bags of
flour, two pairs of shoes and a quantity
of nutritional supplement drinks.
The weapons included two AK47
assault rifles, two shotguns and 15
handguns, as well as quantity of as-
Dillon, who is employed at a home
AK47s in dog food
for the elderly in Santa Cruz, was ar-
rested last Wednesday as she allegedly
went to clear the barrel at Piarco Air
Services' bonded warehouse in El So-
corro, San Juan.
She was allegedly the second con-
signee to attempt to clear a barrel con-
taining dog food that day. The other
consignee was eventually arrested and
his shipment seized after Dillon was

custody up to late yesterday but had
not been charged. He is expected to be
taken to court later this week.

Williams and Kelston Pope and will
reappear in court on July 3.
