Man and woman charged for pistol, ammunition

Two people arrested for a firearm on Saturday, April 23, appeared in Summary Court on Monday.

Kylan Junior Hunter, 31, and Juliette Elean Latham, 28, are charged that on April 23 they had possession of a Smith & Wesson semiautomatic pistol without a firearm license.

They are further charged with possession of 11 rounds of 9mm ammunition.

A press release from police indicated that the defendants were arrested by officers of an armed police unit that had been on patrol along West Bay Road. The arrests took place in the vicinity of a night club parking lot.

The defendants have separate addresses in George Town.

Attorney Amelia Fosuhene appeared for Hunter.

Latham told Magistrate Valdis Foldats that she would be represented by attorney Dennis Brady. However, since Ms. Fosuhene works with Mr. Brady’s firm, she said she would assist by contacting Mr. Brady and then another lawyer Latham named.

Hunter was remanded in custody until May 3. Latham is due back in court April 26.
