A video is being circulated on Social Media that shows Popcaan whose given name is Andre Sutherland in a vehicle that was being searched by police officers, Reports earlier stated that he was held because he has in his possession an illegal firearm.
However, the Unruly Bosses attorney Bert Samuels denies that his client was held with any illegal firearm.
In the video a woman was heard saying “Now people look wah a gwaan. Me hear say dem ketch Popcaan wid gun”.
Popcaan was an occupant of the vehicle captured in the video, his lawyer confirmed it during an interview and that the car he was travelling in was stopped by lawmen for a road traffic violation, but he explained that another occupant of the vehicle declared that he was a licensed firearm holder.
That declaration caused the lawmen to ask everyone travelling in the vehicle to exit and they continued conducting their checks.
Samuels also reported that the firearm was looked at and returned to the owner and nothing else happened at the time.”
The lawyer also reported Popcaan said that he was disappointed that “an incident-free encounter with the police is being turned into a story with no foundation.”
