Trelawny woman on ammo charge
THIRTY one year-old Sharon Williams, charged with illegal possession of ammunition was granted bail in the sum of $20,000 and her case transferred to the Regional Gun Court in Montego Bay , when she appeared in the Falmouth Resident Magistrate’s court on Wednesday.
Williams, who is employed to a north coast hotel, was taken in custody on October 31, after members of the Crime Management Unit, headed by Senior Superintendent Reneto Adams, carried out a raid at her house in Spicy Hill, Trelawny. Eight rounds of ammunition allegedly found during the operation.
Williams’ boyfriend, 42 year-old Paul Harvey, alias ‘Greasy’, who also occupied the house, was shot and killed by members of the unit after he allegedly opened fire at the police.
Harvey was wanted by the police for the murder of Sergeant Leroy Steele in October and the shooting up of a dance in the Rollington Town area of Kingston, Adams told the Observer.
Steele was the sub-officer in charge of the Rollington Town police station and was reportedly killed while he was trying to apprehend Harvey.
Williams will next appear in the Gun Court on December 6, when her case will again be mentioned.
