Teacher charged with impersonating police officer remanded

The teacher who was charged last week after he entered the Elletson Road Police Station with a loaded illegal gun and pretended to be a member of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, was remanded when he appeared before the Gun Court on Wednesday. 
 
Thirty-eight year old Troy Chambers of Killarney Avenue, Kingston 20, appeared on charges of possession of an illegal firearm and ammunition as well as impersonating the police.
 
His attorney, Peter Champagnie, requested that a psychiatric evaluation be conducted.
 
Mr. Chambers, a drama teacher at Calabar High School, is to return to court on March 20 for a bail hearing.
 
He was arrested on Thursday after he went to the Elletson Road police station and pretended to be a police sergeant. 
 
Mr. Chambers, who was in possession of a Glock pistol with 18 rounds of ammunition, aroused the suspicion of officers on duty.  
 
He was asked to produce his police identification card as well as his firearm licence, which he was unable to do. 
 
He reportedly admitted to the cops that he was not a police officer.
 
Investigators obtained a search warrant and went to his home the following day where they reportedly seized 58 rounds of  ammunition, 33 spent casings, five magazines, a handcuff and a Glock pistol case.
 
It is reported that a firearm licence, two holsters, a magazine pouch and a combat belt were also seized at the house.
