A married couple charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm and 59 rounds of ammunition appeared in Summary Court on Thursday for an update of the case against them.

Elton David Webster, 32, and Eliza Eunice Webster, 28, came before Magistrate Valdis Foldats and had their bail extended until May 31.

Defense attorney Amelia Fosuhene told the court a report had been received indicating that fingerprint evidence had shown insufficient detail.

Crown counsel Garcia Kelly advised that he expected to receive a report about the results of DNA tests the week of May 21.

Giving time for both sides to consider those results, the magistrate set the next mention for Thursday, May 31.

The magistrate also asked about Mr. Webster’s bail status. Ms. Fosuhene advised that an application to a Grand Court judge for bail had been successful.

The couple first appeared in court on April 16, when Mr. Webster was remanded in custody and Mrs. Webster was granted bail.

They had been arrested on April 11 after police went to their home with a search warrant and found a Glock 17 semi-automatic pistol, loaded with nine rounds of ammunition, plus another 50 bullets in a box.

The items were in a plastic bag on a ledge behind a microwave oven in a built-in cabinet. The court was told at that time that the Websters purchased their home two years ago and had not changed any of the appliances.
