Man charged with gun possession after weekend arrest

Defendant: Jomari Gooden

A 24-year-old Sandys man appeared in Magistrates’ Court charged with multiple firearms charges.

Jomari Gooden was arrested by police on Middle Road in Sandys in the early hours of Saturday morning.

He was subsequently charged with being possession of a Glock 17 gun without holding a licence, and being in possession of ten rounds of ammunition without holding a licence, contrary to section 3(1a) of the Firearms Act.

Mr Gooden was charged with a further three counts: possessing a pocket folding knife with a blade that exceeded three inches, assaulting a police officer, and violently resisting arrest.

Mr Gooden was not required to enter a plea as two of the offences are indictable and must be heard in Supreme Court.

Senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson remanded the defendant into custody after rejecting a bail request from defence lawyer Marc Daniels.

Mr Gooden will appear at the next arraignments session on November 1.
