The three men who were found in a Campbellville house on Sunday night when a police search unearthed a high powered ak-47 rifle, a 9mm handgun and over 60 rounds of ammunition, have been charged with possession of illegal firearms and refused bail.
The three appeared in court this morning and were identified as 35-year-old Lloyd Roberts, 30-year-old, Teon Alleyne and 29 year-old Andre Pollydore.
When the men appeared in front of Magistrate Faith McGusty, they all entered not guilty pleas.
Roberts, who is a suspected former member of the phantom death squad, was represented by Attorney Nigel Hughes who pleaded for his client to be granted bail.
Mr. Hughes told the court that Roberts does not live at the house where the weapons were found and was just visiting at the time.
He said persons have been making death threats against Roberts and he pleaded that if bail be denied, then Roberts should be housed in a special part of the prison and not with the general population.
Bail was denied and no offer was made with regard to the remand request. The three men will make their next court appearance on February 14.
