The bail hearing for 50-year-old Gary White, a Doyles man facing a long list of firearms and other charges, went through most of the day on Friday and is set over for continuation on July 23.

The bail hearing started in Stephenville Provincial Court on Monday under Judge Lynn E. Cole.

Cpl. Mike Reidpath of the Channel-Port aux Basques RCMP said a lengthy number of the charges against White are from one incident. However, there are  four different incidents, with one charge from an occurrence in St. Andrews and several charges from matters in the Corner Brook area.

In total, White is facing 27 charges, with 13 of them firearms-related offences. Included in those are three charges of careless use of a firearm, another of carrying a concealed weapon and another of carelessly using a firearm or ammunition.

Other charges include three assaults, two mischiefs relating to property and nine of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm.

Reidpath said two of the charges are in relation to an assault and threats to a police officer.

He said White was arrested in early April and there are still some outstanding charges pending ongoing investigations into other allegations.
