St. Ann businessman Arthur Von Strolley has been fined $150,000, after pleading guilty to gun related charges in the St. Ann criminal court.
Yesterday, Von Strolley was charged $100,000 for illegal possession of a firearm and $50,000 for assault.
The motor vehicle dealer was charged on April 30, following an incident at his home on April 9.
The crown led evidence that Von Strolley punched the gardener in the face, during an argument.
Von Strolley had accused the gardener of stealing his daughter's watch.
The matter was reported to the police and Von Strolley was arrested and brought before the court the same day, where he pleaded not guilty.
Von Strolley later changed his plea guilty on the charges of illegal possession of a firearm and assault at common law.
The charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm was withdrawn.
Von Strolley who was on bail in the sum of $350,000 with surety was fined, after he changed his plea to guilty.
The Firearm Licensing Authority may revoke any licence, if a person is found guilty of illegal possession or use of a firearm or ammunition or of the unlawful use of a firearm to threaten violence against another person.
