A 33-year-old man accused of having eight firearms and over 1,200 rounds of ammunition has been committed to stand trial at the High Court.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick transferred the cases against Adesina Kijana Crichlow, of Apartment No. 6 Roumaika Court, Dayrells Road, Christ Church and Brydens Avenue, Brittons Hill, St Michael today when he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court.
Crichlow is accused of possession of a firearm and two rounds of ammunition on January 6 without valid licences.
He is further alleged on January 8 to have had six firearms as well as 371 rounds of ammunition without the necessary licences and on January 10 – one firearm; 199 rounds of .223 ammunition; 143 rounds of .45 ammunition; 110 rounds of .375 ammunition; two rounds of .38 ammunition; 29 rounds of .32 ammunition; 17 rounds of .25 ammunition; and 333 rounds of 7.62 ammunition all without the necessary licences.
The accused, who has been on remand at HMP Dodds since January 13, was not required to plead to the indictable charges at the Magistrate’s Court and is now waiting his day in the continuous criminal assizes of the High Court.
He will, however, reappear before the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court on November 15 when three drug charges – possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of cannabis – which were allegedly committed on January 6 will continue.
