Man denies importing firearm

A Warwick man has denied importing an illegal firearm into Bermuda on August 29.

Dvonne Hodgson, 27, of Sun Valley Road, is accused of trying to bring the airsoft BB gun through airport customs by dismantling it and hiding the pieces throughout his luggage.

Hodgson initially told customs officers it was his grandmother's BB gun but later admitted it was his. He opted for a summary trial in Magistrates' Court and the case was adjourned to December 6.
