Men face firearm and ammunition charges in court
Two men were charged in Magistrates’ Court today with importation of a firearm and ammunition, while another two were charged with having the items without a licence.
Kenrick Christopher, 56, and Johnnie Alexander, 33, both from Grenada, faced charges of importing a Glock 9mm pistol and seven rounds of ammunition into Bermuda on or around November 9.
Ramar Simmons, 32, and Terranz Smith, 55, were charged with having the same weapon and ammunition without a licence, also on November 9.
Mr Simmons, from Warwick, and Mr Smith, of no known address, were also charged with conspiring to bring a controlled drug into Bermuda and having cannabis resin with intent to supply when they appeared in court today.
As the case must be heard in the Supreme Court, none of the defendants was required to enter a plea this morning.
Senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson sent the matter to the higher court, where it will be mentioned again on January 2, and remanded Mr Christopher and Mr Alexander in custody until then.
Mr Simmons and Mr Smith were remanded in custody until tomorrow, when bail applications will be heard.
