Two men are scheduled to appear before the Gun Court on Friday, October 16 to answer to charges of illegal possession of firearm and illegal possession of ammunition following a weapon seizure that reportedly occurred on Thursday, October 8.

Charged are 23-year-old Shavoy Shaw, a tiler, and 35-year-old Damarkie Campbell, otherwise called ‘Markie’, both of Farm Heights, Montego Bay, St James.

Reports from the Mount Salem police are that about 8:25 pm, law enforcers were conducting operations on Crawford Street in Montego Bay, when they signalled the driver of a Toyota Mark X motorcar to stop.

He complied and the vehicle and its occupants were searched, resulting in the reported seizure of a 9mm Beretta pistol with a magazine containing seven 9mm rounds of ammunition.

Both Shaw and Campbell were arrested and subsequently charged by the police.
