CORNER BROOK — The Corner Brook man charged in Nova Scotia with possession of cocaine for the purposes of trafficking has been given 30 months in prison.
Jordan Deangelo Gardner, 22, was charged after police confiscated two kilograms of cocaine from him at the Acadian Lines bus terminal in Truro last Dec. 23.
He pleaded guilty and was sentenced in a Truro courtroom Wednesday. In addition to the lengthy prison term Gardner was also given a 10-year firearms prohibition.
Gardner returned to Corner Brook since his arrest and was charged in his home province with four breaches of a recognizance issued by the Nova Scotian courts in April. Those breaches allege Gardner violated the conditions pertaining to a curfew, staying away from locations where alcohol is served, not carrying a copy of his recognizance with him and not keeping the peace and being of good behaviour.
He appeared in provincial court in Corner Brook on those charges in August and had a next court date set for Oct. 2.
