Four years after his arrest, Ackeem Jabarr Crichlow, of Farm Road, St Philip, has pleaded guilty in the High Court to having a .38 revolver, a 1.38 pistol and seven rounds of ammunition on October 9, 2013.
Police, acting on a tip off, had gone to Winsor Lodge, St Michael, where they saw Crichlow and his co-accused at a bus stop.
During a search of the two men, the guns, including one that was wrapped in a sock, were discovered in plastic bags in a haversack, which Crichlow was carrying on his back.
“Officer, I now find that in The Ivy,” he said, when asked whether he was a holder of a valid firearm licence.
He was taken into lawful custody, but when told of his rights to an attorney, Crichlow reportedly said: “I don’t want no lawyer . . . you catch me with them in my bag.”
Attorney-at-law Ajamu Boardi is representing Crichlow, who is not known to the court, while Senior Crown Counsel Olivia Davis is prosecuting the case.
The accused man returns before Madam Justice Jacqueline Cornelius in the No.5 Supreme Court on November 27 when his presentencing report is to be issued.
