No Bail In Gun Possession Case


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN was remanded to prison yesterday after he was arraigned in Magistrate’s Court on a pair of firearm related offences.

Maxwell Holbert, 19, of Montell Heights stood before Magistrate Constance Delancy facing a count each of possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition.

The prosecution alleges that Holbert was found with a loaded black PX-4 Storm 9MM pistol and 13 live rounds of ammunition when arrested by police on June 9. A conviction for these offences could result in imprisonment for up to seven years.

Holbert denied the allegations when called on to enter a plea to the charges.

He returns to court on July 5 for trial.

However, he was denied bail and remanded to the Department of Correctional Services to await trial.

Holbert was informed of his right to apply for a bond to the Supreme Court.
