He pleaded not guilty to the illegal possession of a firearm charge and was remanded to prison. The matter was adjourned to March 27.

Greendige was caught with the gun used to shoot and wound Sheet Anchor resident, Fay Samaroo.

Reports indicated that a lone gunman, approached the Samaroo’s house and opened fire, leaving her wounded.
