New Year’s Day arrest over alleged ‘imitation firearm’

A man is set to stand trial after being charged with possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence in Bermondsey.

Costel Marius Ghiorghita, aged 33, appeared at Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, January 3, charged with possession of an imitation firearm in Jamaica Road.

The defendant, who is of no fixed abode, was arrested at about 1pm on New Year’s Day after specialist firearm officers were called to reports of gun shots heard in King’s Stairs Gardens.

Ghiorghita appeared before magistrates on Tuesday charged with possession of a Bruni Mod 92 8mm blank firing pistol in Jamaica Road with intent to cause a member of the public to believe that unlawful violence would be used against them.

He was remanded into custody to appear at Inner London Crown Court on Tuesday, January 31.

Two other men, aged 25 and 49, were also arrested in connection with the alleged incident and bailed to return  in late January.
