David Meadors, an 52 year-old American citizen, appeared in Grand Court last week where it was confirmed that his trial for firearms charges will be held in April 2018.
He was charged earlier in the year with various offenses after it was discovered that his container of building supplies also had 240 rounds of ammunition during a routine search by customs. Further searches of his home led to a Glock 9mm handgun and a Smith & Wesson BB gun being discovered.
He first appeared in Summary Court on July 10th and his charges were committed to the Grand Court in August. He pleaded guilty to importation and possession of a Glock 9mm handgun in Cayman Brac without the required licenses on or before July 7, 2017. He pleaded not guilty to importation and possession of 240 rounds of 9mm ammunition, also on or before July 7, and not guilty to possession of an unlicensed BB gun.
Senior Crown counsel Nicole Petit advised that trial had been set for April 9, 2018, for the charges to which Meadors had pleaded not guilty.
He and was granted conditional bail that included several sureties, a charge on his Brac property and wearing of an electronic monitor. Justice Alastair Malcolm extended his conditional bail until then.
Meadors is said to be the millionaire CEO of Broward Impact Window & Door a company that specializes in hurricane and impact resistance products in Dania Beach, Florida.
