Wanted men jailed
Two accused of kidnapping and gun crimes among others
Wanted men Ricardo Winfield Mayers and Pearson Omar Jordan have been sentenced to nine months behind bars.
Mayers, 30, of Bannister Land, Martindales Road, St Michael and 32-year-old Pearson Omar Jordan of no fixed place of abode today faced a total of 12 charges when they appeared in the District ‘D’ Magistrates’ Court. However, they only pleaded guilty to one theft committed in St James, and it was for that crime that they were sentenced to jail time.
They are also accused of three other theft offences; one count each of robbery, kidnapping, unlawful use of a firearm and theft of use; and two counts each of aggravated burglary and endangering life.
They will reappear at several courts across the island on three consecutive days to answer the remaining charges, namely the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on April 15, District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court on April 16 and a day later at District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court.
Mayers and Jordan were caught last week at the Taylor’s Gap, Martindale’s Road, St Michael home of a 25-year-old woman, after being the subject of a police wanted bulletin.
That young woman, Clyesha Shamara Barnard, previously appeared in court on two charges of assisting the wanted men.
She was released on bail.
