Christ Church youth remanded on gun charges
Romeldo Ricardo Mayers of Block 3D Pleasant Hall, St Matthias, Christ Church will have his day in court again on September 23.
He had been arrested and charged with Possession of a firearm without a valid licence and possession of Ammunition, following an incident that took place on August 22.
Police travelling along Pine Road, Belleville, St Michael had stopped a vehicle with three occupants aboard.
During that operation, which had been captured on camera and has been making its way around on social media, officers discovered a Glock pistol and ten rounds of ammunition in Mayer’s pants pocket. They also found an empty magazine.
When the 20-year-old appeared before Magistrate Graveney Bannister in the District A Traffic Court on Tuesday, he was not required to plead to the indictable offences and was remanded to the custody of Dodds prison.
