St Catherine teen, 18-year-old Aliyah Johnson, has been granted $800,000 bail.

Bail was granted by the St Elizabeth Parish Court yesterday following an application by her attorney Peter Champagnie.

She’s charged with illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.

Johnson, who is of a Portmore address, was arrested on June 28 along with another man, Leon Francis, in St Elizabeth following the seizure of a high powered rifle, over 60 rounds of ammunition and a telescope.

They were both subsequently charged.

Johnson is to return to court next month.
