Kieran Martin Collins, of Drumbeg in Tullygally, appeared at Lisburn Magistrates' Court on Monday.

It is alleged the 35-year-old had a semi-automatic pistol and other items likely to be of use to terrorists.

He was arrested following an overnight security operation in the Kiln Road, Lurgan on Thursday.

Collins, who was wearing a white top, would not stand when asked to by the Magistrate.

A police officer said he believed he could connect Collins to the decision and no application for bail was made.

Collins was remanded in custody and as he was led out of the court, a number of people in the public gallery cheered and clapped.

He is due to appear at court in Craigavon next month via videolink.
