KINGSTON, Jamaica — Three men are scheduled to appear before the Gun Court on Tuesday, October 29, to answer to charges stemming from breaches of the Larceny and Firearms Acts, the police have reported.

Accused are 64-year-old Dudley Watt, otherwise called 'Two Grand', of Duff Street in Rose Town, Kingston 13, 33-year-old Oniel Walker, otherwise called 'Blacks', of Lower York Street, Kingston 16 and 48-year-old Dwayne Carter, otherwise called 'Ricky', a chef of Donmair Close, Kingston 19.

Reports from the Central police are that about 6:55 pm, on Sunday, October 13, a man was walking along King Street in Kingston when on reaching the intersection of Water Lane, he was pounced upon by two men — one armed with a firearm — who robbed him of his personal items.

The police said subsequent investigations led to Watt and Walker being arrested and charged with robbery with aggravation and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

In another incident, Carter was arrested by the Constant Spring Police about 10:30 pm, on Monday, October 21 when he was seen standing along the roadway in his community acting in a manner that aroused the suspicions of the lawmen.

According to the police, Carter was accosted, searched and an HK VP9 9mm pistol along with a magazine containing fourteen 9mm rounds of ammunition taken from his waistband. A further check of his premises revealed a magazine, a magazine holder and thirteen 9mm cartridges.

Carter was subsequently charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition, the police said.
