Waleed Lang of St. Croix Gets Probation For Mailing Himself A German-Made Titan Tier Gun

MAIL CALL: St. Croix’s Waleed Lang gets probation after mailing himself a German-made gun.

CHRISTIANSTED – A St. Croix man was sentenced in federal court to five years probation for admitting to illegally mailing himself a gun.

Waleed Lang, 33, got that sentence for “unlawful mailing of a firearm” from U.S. District Court Judge Raymond L. Finch on Tuesday, U.S. Attorney Ronald Sharpe said.

Judge Finch also ordered Lang to pay a fine of $500 along with a special assessment of $100, Sharpe said.

On or about February 15, 2014, Lang knowingly mailed a U.S. priority mail parcel from Florida to St. Croix.

The parcel contained a Titan Tier .38 caliber revolver.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alphonso Andrews, Jr.

A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
