Fireman charged with imitation firearm offense

Fabian Oliver Thompson, 33, appeared in Summary Court on Tuesday, charged with possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit an offense.

The alleged offense was resisting arrest on Jan. 20 near his residence in Bodden Town.

Defense attorney Laura Larner said Thompson worked as a fire officer, appeared to be of good character and denied being in possession of a firearm.

Ms. Larner was holding the matter for attorney Prathna Bodden, who was in the Grand Court, so Magistrate Angelyn Hernandez adjourned the case until June 14.

The magistrate granted bail of $1,000 with a local surety.
