A 45-year-old St Michael man, accused of having four firearms and 217 rounds of assorted ammunition without valid licences, has been remanded to Dodds prison until November 10.
Edward DaCosta Gollop, of School Lane, Halls Road, St Michael, was not required to plead to the indictable offences when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant this afternoon in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
The guns, along with 100 rounds of 7.62 calibre ammunition; 97 rounds of .45 calibre ammunition and 20 rounds of .32 calibre ammunition, were reportedly discovered by officers of the Anti-gun and Tactical Response units of the Royal Barbados Police Force when they executed a search warrant at Gollop’s residence on October 9.
The 45-year-old, who is being represented by Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim, in association with attorney Sian Liange, is also accused of possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of cocaine and cannabis.
Gollop is further charged with laundering of BDS$69, 818 and US$2,461, which were reportedly the proceeds of crime, and of offering the US currency for sale even though he is not an authorized dealer.
