MANCHESTER, Jamaica — The man who went on a trip overseas earlier this year and left six of his licensed firearms at his house in Mandeville, Manchester, has been charged.
Police told OBSERVER ONLINE that the accused, identified as David McMorris, has been slapped with a charge of negligence.
“He is expected to appear in the Mandeville Resident Magistrate’s Court today (Wednesday),” a member of the Police High Command said.
Police report that McMorris left all six of his licensed firearms in his safe at his house in Manchester, and left the island.
Reports are that days after he left the island, criminals broke into his house and stole the weapons.
Police said McMorris was apprehended for breaching Section 4 of the Firearms Act.
“The law states that persons leaving the island should turn over their licensed firearm to the nearest police station or the Firearm Licensing Authority,” the police said.
