AnthonyOn Monday February 20th Anthony Stevens, known Razzle Dazzle was sentenced to 5 years in prison after being busted with a cartridge for a 16-gauge shot gun.

Stevens was busted by police on Friday, February 17 on Amara Avenue with the ammunition in his pocket.  When he appeared before Magistrate Roberto Ordonez in Court #4, Stevens was read a single charged of keeing ammunition without a gun license. When he appeared in court he wasted no time and pleaded guilty to the charge. He further explained that he had just found the round and he tried to turn it in but the police searched his pocket and found the ammunition. Cops did not believe his story.

Due to the nature of the offense, Magistrate Ordonez explained to Stevens that the penalty for having ammunition carries a jail term.  He was sentenced to 5 years in prison for the crime.

Reports are that at about 3:30 p.m. on that day police officers on motorcycle patrol on Euphrates Avenue, spotted Stevens acting suspiciously. When he saw the officers he began to run away.  The officer set chase after him and caught up with him on Amara Avenue.  A search was conducted on him which led to the discovery of the cartridge in his right back pocket.   Stevens has no previous conviction for any offense of this nature but this is not his first time before the court.  During the arraignment, Magistrate Ordonez indicated that he recognized the defendant, who was in the court before using a different name, Anthony Lopez.    It is not certain if Stevens will be charged additionally for committing a mischievous act if his real name turns out to be Anthony Lopez.
