Tribune Staff Reporter


A 44-year-old man is behind bars after he allegedly ambushed and gunned down a 28-year-old man in his car in the Montell Heights area last week.

Magistrate Algernon Allen, Jr, charged Alvin Morley, Sr, with murder, possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition.

Alphonso Lewis and Levan Johnson represented the defendant.

Morley, while reportedly wearing a ski mask and armed with a handgun, approached Destin Curtis and his female companion when their car broke down on Bell Close on January 10.

The accused allegedly opened the driver’s door and shot Curtis multiple times before fleeing on foot. 

While the female passenger escaped unharmed to nearby relatives, Curtis died of his injuries in hospital. 

Morley was arrested on January 13 after he attempted to flee from police near a residence on Bell Road. There, authorities reportedly found a G2C 9mm pistol with eight rounds of ammunition that the accused allegedly tried to discard during the chase.

The accused was told that his matter would be transferred to the Supreme Court through a voluntary bill of indictment (VBI). He will be sent to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services until the higher court grants him bail.

Morley’s VBI is set for service on May 29.
