A Montego Bay, St James-based dancehall music producer, Shabdon, has been freed of gun related charges. 

The music producer, whose given name is  Linval Thompson, had the charges dropped when he appeared in the gun court today. 

He was charged with illegal possession of firearm and illegal possession of ammunition. 

Thompson is represented by attorney Donahue Martin Junior. 

He’s still facing charges for breaching the Corruption Prevention Act in relation to allegations of bribery.

Reports are that Thompson offered a policeman $2 million to remove an illegal firearm from his vehicle, before it was searched by another police.

In the meantime, Thompson’s co-accused Romario Scott, was sentenced to six years for his illegal possession of firearm charge and four years for the charge of illegal possession of ammunition.

He was represented by attorney Tom Tavares Finson, Queen’s Counsel.
