Gun ac­ces­sories

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS COURT -

CREAT­ING his own gun si­lencer has been an ex­pen­sive ex­er­cise for Crys­tal Brook’s Michael John Kelly.

Plead­ing guilty to un­law­ful pos­ses­sion of a weapon, Kelly, 29, told the court he had cre­ated the si­lencer af­ter read­ing about it on a gun fo­rum and only did it be­cause he had hear­ing prob­lems.

Po­lice searched a Crys­tal Brook ad­dress around 12.30pm on April 12 and found the home-made de­vice.

Rep­re­sent­ing him­self, Kelly said “I do have hear­ing dam­age and I thought it was a smarter way to go about it, ob­vi­ously not.”

He was fined $1000 but had no con­vic­tion recorded.
