Stephon Anderson remanded for firearm charges

Stephon Anderson

A Belize City man is behind bars at the Belize Central Prison after he was caught with an illegal firearm and ammunition in the city over the weekend.  On Sunday, twenty-one year old Stephon Anderson was searched by the Police who found a nine millimeter Smith and Wesson pistol loaded with eight live rounds of ammunition on him.  He appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith and was charged with Keeping an Unlicensed Firearm and Keeping Unlicensed Ammunition. He pleaded not guilty but because of the nature of the offense he could not be granted bail.  Anderson has the option of applying to the Supreme Court for bail within fourteen days, but if that does not work out, his next court date is set for August sixth 2013.
