Father of 3 remanded on gun charges
A 30-year-old construction worker was on Wednesday remanded to prison by City Magistrate Fabayo Azore on two firearm related charges.
Marlon Smartt, a father of three, denied that on November 5, 2017, at Regent Street, Georgetown he had a .32 pistol in his possession when he is not a licenced firearm holder.
Smartt further denied that he had three live rounds of. 32 ammunition in his possession when he is not permitted to carry same. His Attorney, Adrian Thompson in a bail application, told the court that his client was the caretaker of the property where the gun was found.
Thompson further pointed out that police raided the building while his client was not there, however when he returned, he found the door of the building “cracked open.”
The lawyer further added that when Smartt entered the building he was pounced on by police, however, he was too intoxicated to answer any of their questions. Police Prosecutor, Simon Payne objected to bail.
He was remanded until November 15, 2017.
