Man remanded on gun charges


Share post:

A ST LUCY man has been remanded to prison after appearing in court charged three firearm offences.

Jeevad Griffith of Harrison’s Tenantry, Crab Hill is accused of wounding with intent, use of a firearm and assault with a firearm.

The first two charges stem from a December 12, 2015 incident in which Dexter Lashley of Crab Hill was shot and seriously injured while at his residence.

 Investigations led to the arrest of Griffith who was the subject of a police wanted notice.

In an unrelated incident on the same date and also at Crab Hill, Griffith assaulted another man while armed.

He appeared in the Holetown/District E Magistrates Court today and will re-appear on February 1. (PR/NB)
