(CNS): A West Bay couple are expected to appear in court today after being charged with the possession of an illegal gun. A police spokesperson said that 26-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman were charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm Tuesday morning following their arrest in connection with an incident outside a West Bay night club late Friday night. The RCIPS received a report at about 11:45pm on Friday, 3 May, that a man had been threatened with a gun outside Club Inferno in West Bay. Officers attended the scene, where one man was arrested and the woman was taken into custody the following day, both on suspicion of threatening violence and possession of an unlicensed firearm.

The couple have now been charged with gun possession, which carries a mandatory ten year jail term if they are convicted, and the man has also been charged with threats to kill.

Police have not yet stated if the gun was recovered.
