Siblings Ronni Otez David, 25, and Sadijje David, 20, pleaded not guilty in Magistrates’ Court Friday to unlawful possession of explosives, in connection with 38 rounds of 0.40 caliber ammunition allegedly found in their family’s Purcell Estate home.
On Dec. 8, police executing a search warrant allegedly found a box containing the ammunition in a chest of drawers in a room occupied by the two defendants, Crown Counsel Janice Stoutt said in court.
“Them is mine,” Mr. David allegedly told police, Ms. Stoutt said. In later police interviews, Mr. David allegedly said he found the box of ammunition in the street, and Ms. David said she had no knowledge of the ammunition, the prosecutor said.
Magistrate Tamia Richards ordered the two, who are represented by Patrick Thompson, to return to court Feb. 10.
Mr. David was offered $30,000 bail with two signed sureties and ordered to surrender his travel documents and report three times a week to the Road Town Police Station. Ms. David was offered $15,000 bail with one signed surety.
