Azzie Bowens, 30, was taken to court, charged with having a .380 semi-automatic pistol and one round of .380 ammunition without a licence issued under the Firearm Act.

Bowens appeared before Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias after his matter was transferred from the family court last week.

Senior prosecutor Adolphus Delpesche made no objections to his bail, but requested reporting conditions.

Bowens was granted bail in the sum of $10,000 with one surety and will report to the police station nearest his residence between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. between Monday and Thursday.

Bowens is being represented by lawyer, Israel Bruce and is expected to reappear before the court on May 10 for trial.

Following Bowen’s arrest, PC 137 Abraham arrested and charged Lloyd Ballantyne, a 41-year-old farmer of Sandy Bay, for having in his possession 2,212 grams of cannabis. Ballantyne pleaded not guilty at the Family Court last week and his matter was transferred to the Serious Offences Court yesterday, where he was granted bail and is expected to reappear on June 28.

Also, Kwayne Glasgow, a labourer of Georgetown, was arrested by PC 572 Peters, another member of Dallaway’s unit. He was charged for having in his possession 518 grams of cannabis at Magum, Sandy Bay.

Glasgow pleaded guilty and was fined EC$850 forthwith or four months in prison.
