Man recently acquitted of teen's murder, back in jail on gun charge

A man who was charged in 2014  with the gun slaying of a teenager in Central Village, St Catherine as part of an alleged community purge, but was acquitted of the charges last month, is again in serious trouble with the law.

The man, identified as Andrew Hinds, was reportedly held in an operation that was conducted last week as part of the Criminal Investigation Branch’s (CIB) operations initiative in Big Lane, Central Village, during which a handgun and five rounds of ammunition were seized.

Hinds is now scheduled to appear in the Gun Court on October 24, 2020.

The St Catherine South police in 2014 charged Hinds, otherwise called 'Men in Black', with the murder of 15-year-old Geavonn Page in Central Village.

Page was a resident of Twickenham Gardens in the Central Village police area.

He was killed as he walked home from a dance.

It is reported that a gunman attacked and shot him on Bennett Avenue in his home community.

Hinds was arrested in relation to the murder after he was pointed out on an identification parade.
