St James man remanded on firearm, cannabis charges


Added 06 December 2017


A 21-year-old St James man who was charged with firearm and drug-related offences has been remanded to prison.

Nikolas Ishmael Raheem Hall of #1 Halls Village, appeared before Magistrate Wanda Blair in the Holetown Magistrates’ Court today.

He is accused of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of six rounds of ammunition and unlawful possession of 28 grammes of cannabis.

Hall was arrested on Wednesday by members of the Anti-gun Unit who were on duty along Husbands Road, St James.

He was the pillion rider on a motorcycle and he jumped off and ran away when he saw the officers.

He was pursued and held by the officers. A subsequent search of his person allegedly revealed the firearm, ammunition, and drugs in his possession. (PR/NB)
