Updated: December 7, 2016

A young man who was busted with a firearm this morning in front of the #1 Magistrate’s Court, pled not guilty to kept firearm and ammunition without a gun license when he appeared this afternoon before the Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith. He is 19 year old John Orosco, a construction worker of New Road. Orosco was remanded into custody until January 16, 2017. Police reports are that Orocso was seen acting suspiciously and playing with something in the waist of his pants. As a result, police conducted a search of his person and it led to the discovery of a silver in color .38 special tucked in the waist of his pants. The gun contained two rounds of gold color .38 caliber ammunition. It was alleged that Orosco came to court with the firearm with the intention to take out two men who were to be acquitted of murder. But the men, after their acquittal, said that it was not true and that Orosco was their friend.
