Harry Dog freed of ammunition charges

Harry McLeod, a reputed top lieutenant of former west Kingston strongman Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, was today freed of ammunition charges.
McLeod, who is more popularly known as ‘Harry Dog’, was on trial in the Gun Court in relation to the discovery of 44 rounds ammunition in the bathroom of an upscale St Andrew apartment in April 2011.
The police say McLeod told them he was the sole occupant of the apartment.
Under cross examination from Attorney-at-law Peter Champagne the police investigator said that he saw McLeod in the corridor of the apartment complex on the day in question.
However, it was pointed out that in his witness statement the policeman said he first saw the accused when he was leaving the apartment.
The policeman also said in his statement that McLeod was present when the bathroom was being searched.
But in an unsworn statement McLeod denied any wrongdoing and said the ammunition was planted.
He said he had told the police that he did not live at the apartment and that he only visited from time to time.
Justice Martin Gayle said the omissions and inconsistencies were too grave and could not be overlooked.
He then dismissed the charges, but McLeod remains in custody as he has a murder case pending in the court.
