No bail for shopkeeper on gun charge despite false arrest claim
A shopkeeper was remanded to prison on Thursday on a charge of unlawful possession of an unlicensed semi-automatic handgun, despite a tearful plea in which he denied knowledge of the weapon and accused police of making a false arrest.
“The thing is not me thing. I don’t know nothing about this thing. Please give me reasonable bail,” Jamie Myers, 28, of Lot 1 Yarrow Dam, East Ruimveldt, pleaded with Magistrate Judy Latchman at his arraignment at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
