ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Businessman Terry D. Smith, who survived an apparent execution attempt on April 23, 2015 on Flemming Street in Road Town, Tortola, was today May 1, 2015 placed before the Magistrate's Court on charges of alleged firearm and ammunition possession.

Smith, 40, was placed on $50,000 bail with signed sureties.

The Crown is alleging that a black Glock .357 handgun with nine .357 rounds of ammunition were allegedly found under Smith's bed at his Butu Mountain home on April 30, 2015 after police executed a search warrant of his home and vehicle.

The defendant, who is the father of three sons, was not pleaded today as defense lawyers indicated they hadn't sufficient time to do an indept interview with him.

Bail was requested by attorney David A. Penn on the grounds that Smith was the victim of a recent drive-by shooting during which he was shot more than 5 times.

The court was told that Smith currently has two bullets lodged in his back and is scheduled for surgery in 3 to 4 weeks time.

Bail was granted on the grounds that he reports daily to the Road Town Police Station between 6am and 6pm Mondays to Fridays.

Smith was also required to lodge his travel documents.

    But others who were found with a gun is in jail… ok then…

    He is not the only one with a bullet inside of him either…Mr Hazel also has a lodged bullet but he’s in jail. What’s so special about this man?!!?!

    What about the man who took ownership of the gun that was found by the scooter rental…how come he is still on the streets as well????

      A Beg u fyi understand Mr. Hazel allegedly got shot by a cop, Mr Smith got his by others. Mr. Smith is probably safer in jail than out on the street. He got hit 5 times at 8pm think about it maybe cop is using him as bait but I won't want be that type of bait.
