When police executed a search warrant at the home of a St Joseph man in 2015 they discovered five rounds of ammunition under his mattress.
Today, Kevin Jamar Parris, of Bissex Housing Area, pleaded guilty to the almost five-year-old charge, which occurred on August 26.
Crown Counsel Rudolph Burnett told Justice Christopher Birch in Supreme Court No. 5A that lawmen ventured to Parris’ home around 6:25 a.m. After speaking to him and handing over the necessary documents they executed the search.
The court heard that in a bedroom under a mattress was a green plastic bag containing a white sock in which there was another green plastic bag. In there was a Styrofoam crate with the illegal ammunition.
“I went to a party at St John about two weeks ago and find them up there,” Parris allegedly told police at the time.
However, when he was arrested and taken to the police station he denied possession of the bullets.
A pre-sentencing report has been ordered on the first time offender who is being represented by attorneys-at-law Amilcar Branche and Sherise King.
Parris remains on bail until April 27 when he returns to the High Court.
