Man goes missing while on bail
Police are carrying out investigations into the disappearance of Belair resident Gershon Calvin Cole-Woods.
Sergeant Rochelle Smith of the Police Public Relations Department said a relative of Cole-Woods reported to investigators at the Calliaqua police station that they have not seen the 36-year-old for some time.
The court had asked Cole-Woods to report to the Calliaqua Police Station three days a week, after he was charged with firearm possession last May. He was said to have been riding in a vehicle with Long Wall resident, Collin âCocoaâ David, who was also charged with firearm possession.
Cole-Woods is charged that on May 5, 2017, at Kingstown, he had in his possession one .38 Taurus revolver, serial number 542285, and on that same day and place he had 15 rounds of .38 ammunition, both without a licence issued under the Firearms Act.
David is also charged that on May 5, 2017, at Kingstown, he had in his possession one Canik 9mm Semi-Automatic pistol serial number T6472- 16 Ap 19974 and on that same day and place he had 36 rounds of 9mm ammunition, both without a licence issued under the Firearms Act.
When both men appeared in court, they were not required to enter a plea, as the charges were indictable.
However, the Crown did not object to bail and both men, who are represented by defence attorney Grant Connell, were granted bail in the sum of $50,000 with one surety.
They were given identical bail conditions in that they were required to report to the Calliaqua Police Station every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and were placed on a curfew from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. They were also ordered to surrender all travel documents.
However, now, Cole-Woods has been reported missing.
