In Grand Court on Friday, Elton David Webster pleaded not guilty to possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition. His trial was set for April 11, 2018.
Mr. Webster, 31, was accused of having a Glock 17 9 mm handgun and 59 rounds of 9 mm ammunition at his Bodden Town home on April 11, 2018.
When Mr. Webster first appeared in Summary Court on these charges, the magistrate was told that police had executed a search warrant at the home. In the kitchen, behind a microwave oven, officers found a plastic bag. Inside the bag was a towel, in which the gun was wrapped. The box of bullets was in the same area.
A photo showed the microwave oven removed from a built-in cabinet, with a ledge in the wall.
The court was told at the time that Mr. Webster and his wife had purchased the home two years earlier and had not changed any of the appliances.
Defense attorney Crister Brady appeared on behalf of his colleague Amelia Fosuhene, who represents Mr. Webster.
Justice Marva McDonald-Bishop continued the defendant’s bail with the same conditions as before: surrender of passport; fixed residence; curfew from 9 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.; daily reporting to the Bodden Town Police Station; a surety in the sum of $30,000; and restriction from going within 100 yards of any airport or seaport.
