A court has heard efforts are being made to get a bail address outside of Limavady for a man accused of ‘possessing munitions’ to cause fear of violence.
Iustinian Phelin (27), of Linenhall Street in Limavady, is also accused of ‘converting into a firearm a certain item which, though having the appearance of being a firearm, was so constructed as to be incapable of discharging any missile through its barrel’.
The offences relate to October 3 this year.
The defendant appeared at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday October 8 via video link from Maghaberry Prison where he has been on remand.
A prosecutor asked for the case to be adjourned for four weeks to allow a full file to be prepared.
The court was told bail had previously been granted at Limavady Magistrates Court but had not yet been perfected.
Defence barrister Michael Smyth said a planned bail address had “evaporated” and efforts were being made to secure an address outside Limavady.
The defendant was further remanded in custody and the case adjourned to October 15.
