Two men are spending the Christmas weekend behind prison walls after they were allegedly held with loaded firearms.
The two have been identified as Anthony “Blacka” Alexander, and Dominque Nivet.
They were held during police exercises between Wednesday and Thursday.
Both men appeared before Magistrate Maureen Baboolal – Gafoor on Friday at the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court where the charges were read against them.
The court was informed that Alexander was held at a home along Lanse Mitan Road, Carenage, with a pistol loaded with nine rounds of 9mm ammunition.
Nivet was held at a house along Dundonald Hill, St James, with a pistol containing 13 rounds of ammunition, as well as eight rounds of 5.56mm ammunition.
However, when the matter was called, the court did not have background tracings in their possession, and as such, the matter was adjourned to Tuesday for this to be provided so that bail could be considered.
More on this as it becomes available.
