He will remain behind bars until his case is again mentioned on November 18.
 
Mr. McKay, who is from Braeton in Portmore, St. Catherine, was charged last week.
 
On February 26, security personnel were examing a container at the terminal when they found the cache of weapons comprising four high powered rifles, a submachine gun, nine pistols, six revolvers and 791 assorted rounds of ammunition.
 
They were found in goods shipped from the United States.
 
Investigators theorised that the arms and ammunition were destined for a criminal network involved in the sale of weapons to criminals.
