A Siparia magistrate has granted a total of $300,000 bail to two people who were jointly charged with having a gun and ammunition at a house in Penal over the weekend.

On Monday, Kendell Aberdeen, 24, and Macala Agard, 29, appeared virtually before magistrate Nizam Khan in the First Court and pleaded not guilty. The magistrate granted them each $150,000 bail and adjourned the case to March 27.
