Tevin Matthews was remanded into custody Wednesday after he appeared at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court to answer to charges, including being in possession of a shotgun and 25 grams of cannabis.

The young man was arrested on February 25 at Petit Bordel and subsequently charged.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges; however, the prosecution objected to bail.

Corporal Black told the court that in addition to being in possession of the firearm without a license and the quantity of cannabis, bomb making material was also discovered in his possession.

According to Black, nitric acid, ammonia acid and a quantity of nails were discovered in a bag he was carrying.

Ammonium nitrate is a very powerful but insensitive high-order explosive.

Matthews told the court that he had spent six years in England and that he had returned a few years ago.

He is expected to reappear at the Serious Offences Court on March 3, when the request for bail would be reviewed. (DD)
