Jamaican Police Charged Jayda Cheaves For Gun Possession, Released On Bail

Jayda Cheaves and her entourage member, Gregory Wright, were formally charged by Jamaican police for firearm and ammunition possession.

The American YouTuber and popular businessman Gregory Wright have been released from police custody in Jamaica on station bail. Local police arrested the pair after two 9mm Glock pistols were found in their baggage as they attempted to leave the island. It appears that the two had brought the guns into the island, which were undetected but were picked up on the radar as they went through customs to depart the island.

On Monday night, Jayda Cheaves updated her followers that she was fine. “ACT NORMAL,” she posted on her Instagram Stories. “I’m good for now y’all,” she added in the same post.

It’s unclear if she is still on the island, but she and Wright have been charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition. They are set to appear in court on Wednesday at the Western Regional Court in the city of Montego Bay, St. James.

Wright also updated fans with a simple trio of praying emojis on Instagram.

Jayda Cheaves is the mother of Lil Baby’s youngest child and has been on the island since last Friday to celebrate her 24th birthday with her friends. She previously shared pictures and videos of her luxurious Jamaican vacation hours prior to her being detained by police.

Meanwhile, sources close to Jayda Cheaves shared that the guns are personal property of Jayda and Wright, and they are licensed in the state they reside in, which is Georgia.

However, given that American laws have no effect on Jamaican jurisdiction, the guns would be illegal in Jamaica unless they received permits to carry them while on the island.

Days before coming to Jamaica, Jayda had shared a video online of herself strutting in black shorts and carrying what looks like a vintage Louis Vuitton bag on her wrist while holding her hand pointed to the ground as she walked around the mall shortly after buying expensive new jewelry.

The police confirmed that Jayda and her friend retained local attorneys while they were being interviewed.

Jayda Cheaves Addresses Arrest In Jamaica For Gun Possession

Jayda Cheaves has broken her silence after she was arrested in Montego Bay, Jamaica, on suspicions of gun possession.

The Atlanta Entrepreneur and Instagram model, who is also the mother of a child for rapper Lil Baby, was reportedly arrested on Monday (September 27) afternoon in Jamaica as she tried to make her way back to the United States.

According to several news outlets, Jayda Cheaves, who also goes by Jayda Wayda and Wayda, was on the island on vacation for her 24th birthday. However, she was detained Monday afternoon by members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) along with members of her entourage after they attempted to leave the island. Two guns were in their possession, which led to them not being able to leave Jamaica.

Sources within the JCF say that the team which flew into the island via private jet on Friday were only detected carrying the guns as they wrapped up their vacation and were leaving when the two 9mm pistols were found in their possession.

Jayda has been sharing her Jamaican vacation with a number of posts showing her going rafting, partying, going horseback riding, and sunbathing near the Caribbean Sea.

Days before coming to Jamaica, Jayda had shared a video online of herself strutting in black shorts and carrying a Chanel bag on her wrist while she had her gun in her hand pointed to the ground as she walked quickly for the camera.

Police sources told Urban Islandz that the weapons are licensed in the United States but not in Jamaica hence why Jayda and her friend were taken into custody. We’re told that they brought the gun into the country last week when they flew down from Atlanta via a private jet.

“We ascertain that the two weapons were license and registered in the US, but not in Jamaica which is where the problem arise,” police told us.

It’s apparent that the Instagram Model and her friends were not searched prior to entering the island, which has a high rate of gun-related crimes and murders and has been named among the top five deadliest countries alongside Colombia when it comes to gun violence.

The police confirmed that Jayda and her friends are being interviewed by the St James police in the presence of their attorneys.

Meanwhile, Jamaicans online reacted to the news of her arrest as many recalled her buying her gun and walking around with it un-holstered.

In addressing the arrest, Jayda Cheaves wrote, “Act normal I’m good for now y’all.”

Meanwhile, fans are reacting to the reports on Twitter.

Lil Baby And Jayda Cheaves Party Together For First Time Since Breakup

Lil Baby and Jayda Cheaves might be back together.

Atlanta rapper Lil Baby and his on-again, off-again girlfriend and baby mother Jayda Cheaves were seen busy partying last night. A short clip that was shared on Instagram shows the pair in a room with a group of persons who were drinking, smoking, and simply having a good time.

Their recent spotting was contrary to earlier speculation that they were no longer a couple. This assumption was made after Cheaves shared several tweets about her love life. “I’ve been in relationships my whole life since high school I don’t even know how to be single. I need to learn myself all over again,” she confessed.

Their recent coming together is confusing, to say the least, as fans try to figure out if they have rekindled their love or if this is just a star-studded example of what co-parenting should look like. One thing is clear both are prepared to ensure their child is taken care of despite whatever differences they may have.

Last year, amid rumors they had broken up, Lil Baby posted this message. “It ain’t no like, ‘still together.’ She my son mama, so it ain’t no way we cannot be together. Even if we not in a relationship like boyfriend and girlfriend type s**t, we got a relationship because we got a kid. We got a small kid so we gotta kick it no matter what.”

Urban Islandz reported that Cheaves also recently sold a Jeep that the rapper gave her, which of course, further fueled the rumors of a split.

Cheaves and the rapper have been romantically linked for a while, and she has even appeared in a few music videos with him, notably “Close Friends” and “Catch The Sun.” They are parents to a 2-year-old, Loyal Armani. Meanwhile, the Grammy’s has announced their performers for this year, and it turns out that Lil Baby made the cut. Probably, the recent Cheaves and Baby moment is just to celebrate the huge accomplishment with the people who are dearest to you, no matter the relationship status.
