Two Jamaicans Facing Trial For illegal Possession Of A Firearm in Cayman
Two Jamaican men are to stand trial for illegal possession of a firearm in Grand Cayman, Hype Life Magazine has learned.
Two Jamaican men who are resident in the Cayman Islands are expected to face trial shortly after denying having a loaded 9mm browning semi-automatic pistol in their possession following their arrest in Bodden Town in June.
The men, identified as Marlon Miller, 35, and Otis Brown, 24, were arrested after a woman complained that Brown pulled an unlicensed firearm on her during a dispute at her George Town home on Wednesday 3 June.
The gun was found in the car both men were travelling in when they were arrested in Calabash Drive on Thursday 4 June.
The woman told police that Miller, who was with Brown when he came to the house, had taken the weapon from him and they both left.
She then called the police and gave the registration number of the car the men were in.
As a result, the men were found in the early hours of the next morning sleeping in the car, and when the vehicle was searched, police recovered the loaded gun.
When they appeared in court on Tuesday 7 September, both pleaded not guilty to the possession charge. Brown, however, pleaded guilty to an assault charge against the woman who is his former girlfriend.
