A 32-year-old local man charged with possessing a homemade rifle is now alleged to have two such rifles.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Hajah Rozaimah binti Haji Abdul Rahman pressed the new charge on Saturday.

However no plea was taken from Norfadzillah bin Abdul Rahman for the charge of possessing two homemade rifles at a house in Jalan Kecil Birau, Tutong at 7.58am on January 11.

Acting Senior Magistrate Kamaliah Fadhilah binti Haji Ibrahim released the defendant on bail and adjourned the case to February 24 to make way for ballistic reports on the seized rifles.
