64-year-old alleged downtown Kingston robber headed for the Gun Court

The police say they have apprehended a 64-year-old man who they believe was among persons who held up and robbed a man at gunpoint in a section of downtown Kingston earlier in October.

The suspect is among three men who are scheduled to appear in the Gun Court on Tuesday, October 29, to answer to charges stemming from alleged breaches of the Larceny and Firearms acts.

The 64-year-old accused has been identified as Dudley Watt, otherwise called ‘Two Grand’, of Duff Street in Rose Town, Kingston 13.

Reports from the Central police are that about 6.55 pm on Sunday, October 13, a man was walking along King Street in downtown Kingston, when on reaching the intersection with Water Lane, he was pounced upon by two men, one of whom was armed with a firearm, who robbed him of his personal items.

Subsequent investigations led to Watt and another man identified as Oniel Walker, 33, otherwise called ‘Blacks’, of Lower Street, Kingston 16, being arrested.

They have since been charged with robbery with aggravation, illegal possession of firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.

And in another criminal case, a 48-year-old man identified as Dwayne Carter, otherwise called ‘Ricky’, a chef of Donmair Close, Kingston 19, was arrested by the Constant Spring police about 10.30 pm on Monday, October 21, after he was reportedly seen standing along the roadway in his community acting in a manner that aroused the suspicions of law enforcers.

He was accosted, searched and an HK VP9 9mm pistol, along with a magazine containing fourteen 9mm rounds of ammunition, was reportedly taken from the front of his waistband.

A check of his premises allegedly revealed another magazine, a magazine holder and 13 more 9mm cartridges.

He was escorted to a police station, where he was subsequently charged with illegal possession of firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.
