Fitzgibbon appeared unrepresented before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford on November 6, 2017 where he was read the charges of kept firearm and ammunition without being granted a firearm license.

The bust was made on Friday, November 3, 2017. According to police, they responded to a report of shots being fired on Kut Avenue in Belize City. Fitzgibbon, a resident of Supal Street, was apprehended as he was at the scene with a 9 mm pistol with 5 live rounds of 9 mm ammunition.
