Lindon HindsOn Tuesday, May 28th, 20-year-old Lindon Hinds, and a 17-year-old minor appeared before Magistrate's Court before Senior Magistrate Sharon to be charged with keeping an unlicensed firearm and ammunition. Before the charges were read however, the charges were dropped against the 17-year-old and Hinds alone was left to face the charge.

In court, Hinds pleaded not guilty to both charges but due to the nature of the offences bail was not offered and he was remanded to prison until July 16th. 

According to police officers, they were on mobile patrol in the Lord Ridge Cemetery area when they saw two men inside the cemetery. When the officers were spotted, one of them men ran off and was seen throwing an object in the area.  Police set chase after the fleeing suspect, who was caught and taken back to the area where he was seen throwing the object. A search of the area resulted in police officers finding a .38 Smith and Wesson firearm with no serial number, which was loaded with 6 live rounds.
