A man was yesterday remanded to prison after he was charged with the illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Travis Moore stood in the courtroom of Magistrate Leron Daly who read two charges.
The first charge alleged that on October 12, at Hunter Street, Albouystown, he had a .38 revolver in his possession without being the holder of a firearm licence.
It is also alleged that on the said date and at the same location, he had five rounds of .38 ammunition without being the holder of a firearm licence.

The prosecutor added, that as a result of the search, the defendant was found with the firearm and ammunition.
The court heard that Moore also gave a caution statement to the police admitting to the crime.
