KINGSTON, Jamaica – A 32-year-old man was arrested and charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition following a seizure by the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) at the intersection of First and Seventh Avenues Greenwich Farm in Kingston on Saturday.
He is Rolando Rainford, otherwise called ‘JR’ and ‘Buggart’ of Seventh Avenue in the parish.
Reports from the Hunts Bay police are that about 6:50 pm, a team of JDF members were on foot patrol in the area, when they saw Rainford in a stooping position, which aroused their suspicion. He was accosted and searched; a 9mm Beretta pistol affixed with a magazine containing 15 rounds was found in his waistband.
Rainford was taken to the Hunts Bay Police Station, where he was handed over to the police and charges laid against him.
