A Canouan teen has been remanded in custody after he was allegedly nabbed with an unlicensed firearm and ammunition the night before the court was to begin looking into an attempted murder charge against him.

Imari Miller, 17, of Happy Hill, Canouan, pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges that on Oct. 19, at Canouan, he had in his possession one Smith and Wesson revolver without a license under the Firearms Act; and that he had in his possession five rounds of .38 ammunition without a licence issued under the Firearms Act.

Prosecutor acting Corporal of Police Shamrock Pierre objected to bail saying that Miller was already on a similar charge.

The prosecutor said that although it was an allegation, Miller was allegedly nabbed at 10 p.m. on the night before the commencement of a preliminary inquiry into a charge that he allegedly attempted to commit murder.

“We are submitting that the court has a duty to protect not only the defendant but the public,” Pierre said and asked that Miller be denied bail.

“He can apply to the High Court,” Pierre said.

Magistrate John Ballah ordered that Miller be remanded in custody until Oct. 30, when the Serious Offences Court would further review his bail application.

Last December, Miller was charged that on Dec. 11, at Canouan, he  had in his possession a firearm, make and serial number unknown, without a license under the Firearm Act. 

He was further charged that he unlawfully discharged a loaded firearm at Franklyn Mason, of Canouan, and he attempted to murder Mason, in Canouan, also on Dec. 11.

  1. Does a criminal has a certain demeanor? if so what can you say as a reasonable prudent man the demeanor as depicted by Miller?

  2. Where are these youngsters parents? did the education revolution failed them? and should any child left behind.

  3. The accused was out on bail for an alleged gun crime. While on bail the accused was [allegedly] found in possession of a loaded fire piece and bail is being considered again? What a joke this judicial system is,it should be wearing a clown costume.

  4. Parents cannot discpline their children and neither can teachers, so why ask for the parents who can be jailed for discplining the children.
