Trader accused of importing dangerous, prohibited items offered bail

A trader who reportedly imported bullets and other items related to making bullets valued at over $200,000 was offered $300,000 bail in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

He is 34-year-old Oneil Schrouder from Chains Road, Mandeville, who has been charged with importation of the dangerous explosives, importation of prohibited goods and false declaration.

As a result of Schrouder's bail, he is to report to the Mandeville police twice weekly.

The accused is to return to court on February 6, when the matter will be mentioned as the file is incomplete.

Queen's Counsel K Churchill Neita who represents the accused, told the court that his client had intentions to set up a shooting range for himself and the items were purchased online with a credit card.

It is alleged that on November 28, a search of two barrels and four cardboard boxes labelled with Schroulder's name and address were searched and 9MM bullets, gun powder, lead bars, weights, and other items related to making ammunition were found.
