August 17, 2022

Fifty-one-year-old St Elizabeth resident Godfrey Martin otherwise called ‘Rev,’ has been charged with conspiracy to illegally import firearms and conspiracy to illegally import ammunition.

The police say a major dent in the illegal firearms trade, as Martin is allegedly the mastermind behind the recent illegal importation of 21 guns into the island.

‘Rev’ was arrested in Ocho Rios, St. Ann on Sunday, August 7 by detectives assigned to the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Branch (C-TOC), following intense investigations, which featured several lines of enquiry.

The weapons were seized at a freight in Kingston on March 04, 2022, after members of the Jamaica Customs Agency discovered anomalies.  

Eighteen handguns, three rifles and a large cache of ammunition were found.

He is scheduled to appear in the Gun Court on Friday, September 16.
