1 Mins read

A PROSECUTOR says a full file in the case of a man charged with attempting to import a gun from the United States is not expected to be submitted to them by police until February next year.

The update regarding Kristopher Darren Scott (38), of Frosses Road near Dunloy, came at Coleraine Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena, on Monday.

The defendant is also accused of attempted possession of a firearm and ammunition and possessing diazepam with intent to supply.

The charges relate to October 13 this year when the National Crime Agency (NCA) and PSNI were involved in a joint operation.

Ahead of the original court appearance the NCA said the weapon was found in a parcel containing computer parts.
The interception was made by Border Force officers at an international mail depot close to Stansted Airport near London.

The court charge sheet named the weapon as a SIG P20 Pistol and said the discovery also involved two 9mm Magazines and 52 rounds of Parabellum Luger 9mm ammunition.

The case has been adjourned until December 21.
