The case concerning Dancehall producer Linval Thompson Jr. otherwise known as “Shabdon”, has gotten even more controversial as the source of the illegal gun he and his co-accused were arrested for was uncovered.
According to the JCF who spoke with the Jamaica Observer, the gun was said to have come from a United States Police Department located in Atlanta.
Thompson appeared in the gun court on Wednesday and was granted bail on the condition of 250,000 dollars for the illegal gun and ammunition charges however there have been sources revealing to the Jamaica Observer that the producer will be rearrested due to extra charges being added to his plate.
The reports are that the Jamaica Constabulary force partnered with their United States Counterparts and carried out forensic tests and ballistics on the weapon and found out that it belonged to the Atlanta Police Department.
The use of the gun in local crimes are currently being investigated and Romaro Scott, the producer’s co-accused being represented by Tom Tavares-Finson, will face the court on December 2 while “Shabdon” has Donahue Martin as his attorney.
The two men were arrested in Old Harbour, St. Catherine when a vehicle they were travelling was searched and the weapon found.
Since the arrest, many people have been blaming YouTube vlogger “Sir P” for informing the Police, however, he denied ever doing such a thing.
The popular producer is well known for his works with entertainers such as Vybz Kartel, Squash, Chronic Law and Teejay that have made him a top tier instrumentalist on the island.
