The police have now indicated that the former Jamaica Labor Party Councilor who was found in possession of an illegal firearm along a section of the Old Harbor road Road Spanish Town, St Catherine on Sunday, February 9, was officially charged on Wednesday morning, February 13.
Facing charges of illegal possession of a firearm is 40-year-old, Barrington Bailey, otherwise called ” Junior” businessman and political activist of Kirkland Heights, in Red Hills, St Andrew.
Reports by the police are that shortly after 5:00 p.m., the former Councillor was driving a Honda Aquara motor car through a joint military checkpoint at Innswood, along Old Harbor Road in Spanish Town, when he was signaled to stop.
He complied and it was discovered that he was a licensed firearm holder, but a further search of the vehicle led to the seizure of an illegal handgun, a Taurus 9mm semi-automatic pistol.
Daley will appear in the St Catherine parish Court next Thursday, February 19.
