Foota Hype remanded in custody

Jamaican selector Oneil ‘Foota Hype’ Thomas was remanded in custody when he appeared in the Half Way Tree Resident Magistrate's court last Friday.

Officers attached to the Constabulary Communication Network (CCN) informed One876Entertainment that the selector will reappear in the HWT Resident Magistrate’s court on August 17.

Deejay selector Foota Hype is a key member of the Bounty Killer-led Alliance. He had been charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

According to a police officer at the Constant Spring police station, he is suspected of being involved in a drive by shooting at St. John’s Lane that took place just before he was picked up. The police allege that he was involved in a drive by shooting at St. John’s Lane.

The allegations are that the police officers from the Constant Spring CIB intercepted the car at Manor View Drive in the Cassava Piece community where the vehicle was parked and Foota Hype sitting in it. When the car was searched, ten rounds were found wrapped in a piece of paper and ten were found in the magazine in an Ultra Star 9mm semi-automatic pistol.
