The Mount Salem Police arrested and charged 39-year-old Milton Findison otherwise called, ‘Milly’, a farmer of Crawford Street in St. James, with Assault at Common Law and Illegal Possession of Firearm following an incident in his community on Friday, May 7.

Reports are that about 7:20 a.m., Findison used an old refrigerator to block the driving path of the complainant who was on his way to work. Findison then approached the vehicle and brandished a firearm; the complainant upon seeing this, exited the vehicle and a tussle developed between him and Findison. The tussle was quelled by members of the community; the complainant escaped unharmed and reported the incident to the police. Findison left the area on foot but was later arrested and subsequently charged.

Findison’s court date is being finalised.
