“Guns in fridge” case goes to Grand Court

Michael Timothy Ebanks was committed to stand trial in the Grand Court for seven firearms charges after a preliminary inquiry on Wednesday.

Five handgun and two ammunition magazines were found in a refrigerator that Ebanks went to claim at the Cargo Distribution Centre last month. (Caymanian Compass, 24 November).

Ebanks, who turned 21 on 12 December, was represented by Attorney Edward Renvoize.

After the committal, Mr. Renvoize applied for bail. Crown Counsel Nicola Moore objected.

Chief Magistrate Margaret Ramsay-Hale refused bail, but told Ebanks he could apply to a Grand Court judge.

The matter will be mentioned again at the opening of the new Grand court session on Wednesday, 7 January.
