American social media entrepreneur JaydaCheavas was reportedly arrested and convinced of illegal Gun possession in Jamaica while on her 24th birthday trip and then fined $5400 for it.
The 24 year old who welcomed her new age may have over prepared for the worse in Jamiaca.
While she had a gun with her, it wouldn’t have been noticed if she didn’t let it get noticed knowing it wasn’t allowed.
According to Yahoo news, the news was broken via a tweet posted by Jamaican radio broadcaster Dadrian Gordan yesterday afternoon.
Along with sharing the news of R. Kelly’s guilty verdict, the tweet also read:
“Jadya Cheavas was detained for guns. Weapons are licensed in the US but were taken to Jamiaca without authorization.”
Gordan in a follow tweet that after being questioned by Ports Divison detectives, Cheavas and her friend Gregory Wright were “charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition by the Jamaican police” in Montego Bay on Monday, Sept. 27th.
The broadcaster further detailed that her source was Ports Division, Senior Superintendant Wayne Cameron.
Apparently, the official told her that Cheavas and Wright were about to hop on a private jet when authorities found two firearms and 15 rounds of ammunition in their possession around 1:20 local time.
Despite the two friends reportedly having permits for the weapons in the United States, not getting them authorized before bringing them into the Caribbean island
“is a breach of Jamaican law.”At the tweet’s end, it noted that Cheavas and Wright “are booked to appear before the Western Regional Gun Court on Wednesday” and that the two “have been offered station bail.”
She is a US citizen, she will be just fine.
