    Soldier convicted of stealing ammunition

    By staff and agencies
    Last Updated: 2:14am BST 10/08/2007

    The Army was warned it must tighten its procedures after a soldier pleaded guilty to stealing and illegally possessing ammunition he hung onto after a training exercise.

    Private Christopher Trussler, 29, admitted to taking 21 rounds of 9mm ammunition following a training exercise in Northern Ireland in May this year.

    The court heard that Trussler was arrested after an undercover operation involving Scotland Yard’s Operation Trident, which combats gun crime in the black community.

    Trussler, who has been suspended from the Prince of Wales’s Royal Regiment based at Baker Barracks, near Chichester in West Sussex, was detained after trying to sell the bullets.

    Judge Anthony Thorpe raised concerns about the Army’s procedures after hearing that Trussler kept the ammunition following a training exercise in Northern Ireland then tried to sell it.

    Judge Thorpe told Chichester Crown Court: “This is a matter for real concern. If the Army’s control of live ammunition on the face of it is that lax one wishes to hear about it as I would expect at the end of a training exercise weapons or ammunition should be accounted for.

    “I think the Army should consider very carefully how they approach matters in the future.”

    haha. Whats the law there? Is it hard to purchase ammo? Cuz that would suck to get busted stealing like 3 dollars worth of ammo. Seriously tho, how much could 21 rounds of 9mm possibly worth?

    I believe you have to show your weapons permit to buy ammunition there IIRC. I'm guessing the rounds would be worth a decent amount to a thug over there since gun crimes are increasing (beauty of the ban....) and it's not easy to get.

    Japan is worse. They won't let anyone leave the range until all rounds AND shells are accounted for.
