A man, who allegedly had two unlicensed firearms and a quantity of ammunition in his motor vehicle, appeared, on Tuesday, in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and was granted $200, 000 bail by Magistrate Faith McGusty.

Tevin Erskine denied the charges when they were read to him.

It is alleged that on November 14, at Queen and William Streets, Kitty, Georgetown, he had in his possession two .32 Taurus pistols without being the holder of a firearm licence. He also, allegedly, had 43 live rounds of ammunition.

Prosecutor Inniss informed the court that about 00:15 hours on the day in question, the police, acting on information received, proceeded to Queen and William Streets, Kitty, to conduct a search on motor vehicle, PYY3979.

Erskine, who was present at the time, indicated to the ranks that he was the driver of the said vehicle. During the search, the pistols, ammunition and an extra magazine were found on the front left side passenger seat.

Erskine and three others were arrested and taken to the Kitty Police Station. While at the station, he reportedly admitted orally and under caution that the firearms and ammunition belonged to him.

Magistrate McGusty granted the accused $100,000 bail on each charge and adjourned the matter to December 8.
