Man charged with possession of a gun and ammunition

A man was remanded in custody yesterday after he was alleged to have been caught with a semi-automatic pistol and ammunition over the Cup Match holiday.

Jaron Roberts, 30, was charged in Magistrates’ Court with possession of a firearm, namely a Kel-Tec .380 Auto P-3AT firearm, without a license to do so.

He was also charged with possession of three rounds of 9 millimetre ammunition without a license to do so, possession of a firearm in a public place and violently resisting arrest.

The incident was alleged to have happened on Wellington Slip Road in St George’s during the Somerset Cricket Club’s celebratory motorcade on Saturday.

Mr Roberts, from St George’s, did not enter a plea as the case must be heard in front of the Supreme Court.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson sent the case to the next Supreme Court arraignments session on September 1.
