The prosecution revealed three weapons, ammunition and more than 400lbs of ganja a was recovered.

Both men were remanded in custody today (27 April) to Northward prison and given time to find legal representation as the magistrate pointed to the seriousness of the charges. Both men were scheduled to return to court next week for a preliminary inquiry.

The charges against the two men relate to a police operation which took place near the East End library last week Tuesday 20 April when five men in total were arrested after drugs and guns were discovered in a capsized canoe.

Police also confirmed today that the three other men arrested at the time of the operation have been released on police bail while enquiries continue.
