Jermaine Campbell, a member of the Guyana Police Force, appeared before City Magistrate, Leron Daly yesterday, accused of illegally possessing a 23 9MM Glock pistol, seven .62 ammunition, three .78 MM ammunition and seven .22 ammunition.
Campbell of 232 Vigilance South, East Coast Demerara, was allegedly found with the items at Eve Leary, Georgetown.
He pleaded not guilty to the charge after it was read to him in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. He was later remanded to prison.
Police Prosecutor Inspector Kevin London told the court that police, acting on information, went into a house and searched a room occupied by Campbell.
In a cupboard, the prosecutor said, that police discovered the ammunition. Prosecutor London objected to bail citing the fact that no special reasons were provided to satisfy the court.
Campbell was represented by Attorney-at-Law Mark Conway. The attorney told the court that his client shares the same room with two other friends. Conway further stated that the search was not conducted in his client’s presence.
This matter will be called again on July 20.
