A previous warning by Magistrate Douglas Frederick to a 25-year-old handyman seemed to have fallen on deaf ears.
On the last occasion in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court Kyle Tito Wesley Lovell, of St Stephens Hill, St Michael was given community service in order to keep his record clean.
However, he returned today on more serious charges which resulted in an automatic 28-day remand at HMP Dodds.
Lovell is accused of having a firearm and 23 rounds of ammunition in his possession on March 8, 2019, without the valid licences to do so.
He was not required to plead to the indictable charges but admitted to possession and cultivation of cannabis on the same date. He also pleaded not guilty to possession with intent to supply and possession with intent to traffic the drug.
“Were you not before the court recently?” the magistrate asked to which Lovell replied: “Yes”.
Frederick continued: “I spoke to you and told you to keep from these types of things. You did community service, now your name is being called in bigger things. I warned you and talked to you, from experience, from what I have seen. I may have been harsh then but it was for your benefit, now you are in handcuffs and I have to remand you.”
The accused was then given an April 9 date to return before the court.
