Suspect in murder of Linden clothes vendor remanded on ammunition charge
A suspect in the Easter night shooting to death of Linden clothes vendor Glenroy Chapman was on Thursday remanded to prison on a charge of possession of ammunition.
The accused, Coby George, 21, of Lot 67 F Wismar Housing Scheme, Linden, appeared at Court 2 of the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to the charge of possession of ammunition, that is a grenade.
He pleaded not guilty and was remanded to prison until May 11. The matter was reassigned to Court 1.
George, who was wanted for questioning, turned himself in to Police over a week ago after managing to elude ranks for some time.
Investigators attached to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) then conducted a search on his home where they reportedly discovered a grenade, bulletproof vest, a haversack, a camouflage uniform, a face mask and 10 small bottles of vaccine hidden in a pen which was guarded by a pitbull dog.
Two other persons who were held in connection with the Easter night execution-style killing of the father of eight have since been released from Police custody.
Chapman, also called “G”, of Lot 130 Half Mile, Wismar, Linden, was shot seven times as he sat in front of his yard on the evening of Easter Monday. Investigations are still ongoing.
