Teenager charged with firearms offences at Divots restaurant

A teenaged man yesterday appeared in Magistrates’ Court to face charges in connection with a daytime firearms incident at Divots Bar and Grill in Warwick earlier this month.

Josiah King, 18, was charged with possession on May 10 of a firearm – a Generation 5 Glock 19 – and possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence.

Mr King was not required to plead to any charges as they will be tried in the Supreme Court.

He was also charged with possessing a firearm in a public place, namely Divots Bar, Grill and Terrace in Warwick.

Mr King, from Warwick, was further charged with possessing ten Sellier & Bellot 9mm rounds, five Aguila 9mm rounds and one Blazer 9mm rounds, without a valid licence.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson remanded Mr King in custody and referred his case to the Supreme Court arraignments session on July 1.
