A jobless man was yesterday charged with two counts of possessing firearms and ammunition without a licence.

Lau Chi-kit, 34, appeared in Eastern Court after two 7.62mm calibre pistols and 19 rounds of ammunition were discovered in a safe deposit box.

Thursday's find was made at the Electric Road, North Point, branch of Hang Seng Bank.

No plea was taken and magistrate John Brennan adjourned the case until August 3, until which time Lau will remain in custody.
