A man arrested for possessing two banned semi-automatic firearms, ammunition and cocaine with intent to supply has appeared in court, having broken a condition of his bail.
Timothy Smith, of Shephall Way in Stevenage, was arrested on November 3 last year on suspicion of possessing 436 grams of cocaine, two semi-automatic pistols - banned in the UK - and two cartridges, for which he had no firearms licence.
The 49-year-old was out on bail, ahead of a court appearance next month - but was arrested last Tuesday, having failed to sign in at a police station the previous day.
He appeared at Hatfield Magistrates' Court last Wednesday and was re-bailed until his next court appearance on October 4 at St Albans Crown Court.
He has been tagged to monitor a curfew between 9pm and 6am. He has also been banned from going to Ickleford, must surrender his passport and must report to Stevenage police station three times a week.
