An 84-year-old man yesterday pleaded guilty to the charge of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition when he appeared in the St Elizabeth sitting of the Circuit Court in the Gun Court Division.
Bertie Griffiths was charged after he attempted to attend the Balaclava court in September with an illegal firearm.
Upon trying to enter the court he was searched and the weapon, which contained a live round, was discovered.
Griffiths is set to reappear before the court on November 11 for sentencing.
