Trio charged for causing a disturbance
Three young men appeared before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court Wednesday charged with causing a disturbance in St Lawrence Gap in the wee hours of Wednesday morning.
They are: Ismail Mubbarak John, 24, of Church Street, Speighstown, St Peter; Floyd Anthony Lenox Ifill, 30, of Lot 28 Boscobelle, St Peter; and Ramario Ramon Leon Taitt, 18, of #110 Cherry Drive Oxnards, St James.
John and Taitt told Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant they were guilty of the offence, while Ifill denied the charge.
According to the facts presented by police prosecutor Sergeant Janice Ifill, the men had just left an event in St Lawrence Gap when they encountered another group of men. A quarrel ensued about who would travel in a certain vehicle. The dispute escalated and the police were summoned.
After hearing an explanation from John and Taitt, the magistrate reprimanded and discharged them.
However, Ifill, who pleaded not guilty, was granted $1,500 bail with one surety to return to court on January 26, 2017.
