Two people appeared in Summary Court on Tuesday charged with importation of an unlicensed firearm on April 17, 2017.
Mark Anthony Campbell Jr., 31, and Felicia Shenique Paddyfoote, 26, were charged separately, but details appeared similar. They were charged with importing an unlicensed Powerline semiautomatic BB air pistol at Owen Roberts International Airport.
Magistrate Valdis Foldats pointed out that importation of a firearm without a license is a Category A offense, which it means it can be dealt with only in Grand Court.
For that reason there was no discussion of the charges and no pleas entered.
Ms. Paddyfoote was represented by attorney Gregory Burke. Mr. Campbell was represented by attorney Nicholas Dixey.
The magistrate adjourned the matter until Friday, May 11, when the defendants are to appear in the higher court. Their bail was continued until then.
