Darron Rumbolt is seen in provincial court in Corner Brook on Friday.
CORNER BROOK A Mount Pearl man charged with possession of a controlled drug or substance (cocaine) for the purpose of trafficking in Corner Brook was released from custody Friday afternoon following a bail hearing in provincial court.
Darron Rumbolt, 23, was arrested just after 10 p.m. Thursday after the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary/Royal Canadian Mounted Police joint force street level drug team, with assistance from RNC patrol services, conducted a search on him in the Main Street area of the city. The search, conducted under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, resulted in the seizure of approximately 141 grams of what is believed to be cocaine, digital weigh scales, a cellphone and a 2010 Dodge Ram pickup truck.
Rumbolt was released on a recognizance. Conditions of that court order include that he report to the RNC in St. John’s every Wednesday, abide by a curfew from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., not possess or consume any illegal drugs, remain in the province and notify the RNC of any change in address. The sign-in and curfew conditions will be suspended while Rumbolt is out fishing with his employer.
Rumbolt is scheduled to reappear in court here on Dec. 10.
