Kingston plumber charged for ammunition found in car

A Kingston plumber was arrested and charged on Sunday after a round of ammunition was found in his vehicle.

Charged with unauthorised possession of ammunition is 28-year-old Orville Hamilton, otherwise called ‘Pops’, from Regent Street in Denham Town, Kingston 14.

Police reported that around 11:00 am, they were on patrol on Darling Street, near the market, when they observed a white Toyota Mark X motor car travelling behind them with a child standing between the driver and front passenger seats.

The police signalled the vehicle to stop when they allegedly observed that the driver threw a black bag on the rear passenger seat.

The bag was retrieved, the police said, and searched in Hamilton’s presence. During the search, a spent casing was found inside the said bag with health cards bearing the name of the accused.

Hamilton was thereafter arrested and charged. No court date was given for the accused.
