Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN was granted $7,500 bail after allegedly being found with a loaded firearm in his car last week.

Magistrate Lennox Coleby charged Berkley Sands, 27, with possession of an unlicensed firearm and two counts of possession of ammunition.

The accused was arrested on the night of August 10 near Mall Road after police allegedly found a silver and aqua coloured 9mm Roebuck pistol in his car. Five unfired rounds of 9mm ammunition were also reportedly seized. An additional two rounds of 9mm ammunition were recovered from Sands’ residence later that same day.

After pleading not guilty to the charges, he was granted $7,500 bail with one to three sureties. Sands is expected to sign in at the Grove Police Station every Monday, Wednesday and Friday by 6pm.

His trial begins on September 20.
