Two St. Elizabeth residents who were held with more than 2,000 rounds of ammunition five years ago, were on Thursday sentenced in the Manchester Circuit Court.
However, 42 year old Mark Rattary, a farmer of Cedar Spring, Manchester was freed after the five year sentence was handed down.
The judge said he took into consideration that Rattary had spent five years and eights months in lock-up.
Kareem Myles, 42, a taxi operator of Bethsalem was sentenced to seven years at hard labour.
He was sentenced in absentia, as he absconded bail on the second day of the trial.
Both men were found guilty on Monday of illegal possession of ammunition.
