CHRISTOPHER Rogers appeared on Tuesday before Magistrate Judy Latchman on a gun and ammunition charge.
It was alleged that on May 13, 2018 at Sussex Street, Georgetown Rogers had five .38 ammunition shells in his possession, without being a firearm licence holder at the time.
It was further alleged that on the same day at Sussex Street, Rogers had in his possession one .38 revolver without being the holder of a licence. The 28-year-old man denied the charges read out to him in court.
According to the report, on the day of question the police were on patrol duty when they saw motor car HC 461 heading west on Sussex Street. The police became suspicious and as a result they stopped the vehicle, asked the occupants to step out, and a search was carried out.
Attorney-at-Law Dexter Todd, who represented Rogers, told the court that he felt his client was targeted by one of the persons who were doing the investigation, since Rogers’ friends were placed on station bail, but not his client.
Prosecutor Arvin Moore objected to bail due to the seriousness of the offence.
Bail was refused and Rogers was remanded to prison until May 22, 2018.
