Maroon Chief Richard Currie has reportedly handed over his gun to the Firearm Licensing Authority after reports revealed that he was in breach of the Firearms Act. Sources reveal that the Maroon Chief along with an army of people arrived at the offices of the Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) at approximately 3:45 p.m. and left almost an hour after.
On Tuesday, February 15, 2022, Shane Dalling, CEO of the FLA revealed in a press conference at the AC Hotel that the Chief, has not renewed his firearm license that was due on September 21 and they have referred the matter over to the police. Sources also revealed that Currie applied for a renewal of his firearm license but was subsequently denied.
Last year, a video surfaced on social media showing Chief Currie with a shotgun over his back, demanding that members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) leave the Bethsalem, St. Elizabeth community after they came to destroy cannabis in the area.
An investigation was launched on the matter and Currie has hired the services of well-known Attorney-at-Law, Valerie Neita-Robertson to represent him.
