Unlicensed firearm holder remanded
A 44-year-old man was yesterday denied bail for being in possession of a firearm without having a licence.
Edward Persaud, of Soesdyke/Linden Highway was remanded to prison until January 14.
Persaud was allegedly found in possession of a single barrel 16-gauge shotgun and six cartridges of matching ammunition on January 3 while being an unlicensed firearm holder.
Persaud pleaded not guilty to the allegations as he stood before Magistrate Leron Daly yesterday. He was however ordered into police custody.
