A 26-year-old unemployed man has been remanded to prison for the next 28 days on gun and ammunition charges.
Chae Kotane Osuji Branch, of Johnson Land, Green Hill, St Michael, appeared before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm and 17 rounds of ammunition.
He was not required to plead to the two indictable offences which allegedly occurred on March 1, after they were read by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.
However, Branch who was represented by attorney-at-law Arthur Holder admitted that he had in his possession a quantity of cannabis on the same day.
The accused man returns to court on April 26.
