Man held after rifle found at home, later granted bail 

A Kingston man was granted bail on a charge of illegal possession
of firearm and ammunition in the Gun Court division of the
Supreme Court on Friday this was after he was taken into custody
for an assault rifle found at the premises where he lived.

The accused man, Dave Grey, was granted bail in the sum of $250,000 and
was ordered to report to Elletson Road police station once per week. The
accused is a 47-year-old mason of a Kingston 16 address.

Grey was represented by attorney-at-law Duke Foote who argued in the
bail application gun was found in an “open storage area” and was sought
to establish the insecurity of the area within which the gun was found.

The gun in question is an assault rifle Foote argued that the area in which the gun was discovered could be considered “an open storage area” outside and underneath the house.

Foote further stated that this area can not be accessed from within the
house and that several persons, any one of the at least 8 residents who live in the yard or persons in the community could have placed the firearm in the storage area as the yard is open to anyone.
Grey returns to court on June 9.
