Home News Artist on $175,000 bail for gun, ammo charge
A self-employed artist was on Monday granted bail in the sum of 5,000 when he made his second court appearance before Magistrate Allan Wilson at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.
Dexter Bharrat of Lot 32 James Street, Albouystown, Georgetown, was remanded to prison on March 22 of this year after pleading not guilty to the two charges.
It is alleged that on March 18 at Hadfield Street, Werk-en-Rust he had in his possession six .45 live rounds of ammunition without being the holder of a firearm license.
He also denied the charge which read that on the same day at the same location he also had in his possession one FS pistol.
Prosecutor Sergeant Singh again objected to bail, stating that the offence was serious and is prevalent in society.
Bharrat was nonetheless granted 0,000 for the firearm charge and 75,000 for the ammunition charge.
The case will continue on June 15.
