‘OLD MACDONALD:’ Had A Gun … EIEIO… And The VIPD Arrested Him On St. Thomas
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — It’s a children’s nursery rhyme.
But on St. Thomas — little is child’s play.
Daylin MacDonald, 36 of Nye Gade, was arrested at 10:35 p.m. Wednesday and charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm and unauthorized possession of ammunition, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
Police officers were advised that MacDonald was in possession of a firearm at the establishment, according to the VIPD
“MacDonald was found, was searched, and the firearm was found on his waist,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said. “MacDonald admitted that he did not have a license to possess the firearm, and was placed under arrest, and the firearm confiscated.”
Bail for MacDonald was set at $50,000. Unable to post bail, he was remanded to the custody of the Virgin Islands Bureau of Corrections (BOC) pending an advice-of-rights hearing.
