Christopher Elvis plead not guilty to the charges which read that on July 24 at 210 Princes Street he allegedly had in his possession a .38 revolver without being the holder a firearm licence. It was also alleged that he had in his possession five rounds of .38 ammunition and that at Mandela Avenue, Georgetown, he behaved in a manner provoking to the virtual complainant (VC) Orlando Harris.

The Prosecution’s facts stated that on the day in question the Police operated on a report that the defendant was behaving in an ill manner to the VC and upon being intercepted, the Police decided to search the car that he was driving which revealed the gun and ammunitions.

The prosecution disclosed that the gun was found in the air vent under the bonnet of the car.

The defendant was refused bail and will return to court on August 15.
