Security guard remanded for possession of unlicensed firearm
A 48-year-old security guard was on Monday remanded to prison by City Magistrate Judy Latchman on two gun-related charges.
Trevor Heyliger, of Sophia, Georgetown denied that on July 13 at Oronoque Street, Queenstown he had a .45 pistol in his possession when he was not a licenced firearm holder.
He also denied that he had forty .45 live ammunition along with nineteen 7.62×39 live ammunition in his possession on the same day.
According to reports, on the day in question, ranks from the Police Narcotics Branch intercepted motor car PPP 229 which was driven by Heyliger at Oronoque Street.
Heyliger handed over a .32 revolver to the police which he was licenced to carry.
However, ranks further searched the trunk of the motor car and found a .45 pistol in a black rifle holster along with matching ammunition and 7.62×39 live rounds.
Police Prosecutor Quinn Harris objected to Heyliger being released on bail. Magistrate Latchman remanded Heyliger to prison until July 30 based upon the seriousness of the charge.
