Teen in court over gun charge


Tribune Court Reporter


A MAN was granted $7,000 bail yesterday for alleged firearm and ammunition possession.

Jamal Stubbs, 19, represented by Attorney Ryszard Humes, appeared before Senior Magistrate Carolyn Vogt-Evans on charges of possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.

On August 2 in New Providence, Stubbs was arrested by police after reportedly being found with a black Taurus G2C 9mm pistol. He was also in possession of eight live rounds of 9mm ammunition.

He pleaded not guilty to both charges.

Bail was granted in the sum of $7,000 with two sureties. Under the conditions of his bail Stubbs has to sign in at Wulff Road Station every Sunday by 7pm. The accused is also expected to be fitted with a monitoring device and have a curfew from 8pm to 7am.

After detailing Stubbs’s bail conditions Magistrate Vogt-Evans informed him and his attorney that an application to amend these conditions can be made at a later date.

Stubbs’s trial in the matter is set to begin on October 20.
