His target practice has landed him in big trouble and a Linden man is now facing forgery charges after he allegedly forged the signature of the Commissioner of Police on a gun license application document.
Twenty-five year old, Linden resident, Jermain Norehamed, entered a plea of not guilty on Thursday as he appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman to face the forgery charges.
The Court heard that on September 25th, 2017, the young man presented a gun license application document to the Guyana Revenue Authority with the forged signature of the Police Commissioner, knowing that the signature was a forgery.
The Prosecution’s case is that after the young man’s application for a firearm license was denied, he decided to take matters into his own hands and forged the Top Cop’s signature so that he could be granted the gun license.
The bootleg signature was picked up by a GRA Officer and investigators were called in and charges laid. After the Magistrate listened to the facts of the case, she granted the accused bail in the sum of $150,000 and ordered him to return to Court on October 5, 2017.
