A man posing as a car salesman has been charged with illegal possession of a firearm and robbery.

He’s been identified as 28 Donavon Stewart, a taxi operator of James Street in Rose Town, Kingston.

Stewart’s charges stem from an incident that occurred along Spanish Town Road, Kingston 11 on
Thursday, July 28.

According to reports, a man and his two sons met Stewart to purchase a motor car that was advertised for sale on a social media platform.

Stewart reportedly led the prospective buyers along a dirt track leading to the Rose Town community where he showed them a different motor vehicle from the one that was advertised.

Stewart tried to convince the man to buy the vehicle.

The man refused and proceeded to leave when Stewart and two other men pounced on him.

The hoodlums robbed the man and his sons at gunpoint of three cellular phones and six-hundred thousand dollars.

Following investigations, Stewart was arrested and subsequently charged. His court date is being
finalized.
