Gary White, a 50-year-old Doyles man facing a long list of firearms and other charges, was released from custody on bail when he appeared in Stephenville Provincial Court on Thursday.

His release has a number of strict conditions attached with his next court appearance set for Aug. 14 in Stephenville for a status report to set a date for a preliminary inquiry.

Cpl. Mike Reidpath of the Channel-Port aux Basques RCMP said a lengthy number of the charges against White are from one incident; however, they relate to a total four different incidents, with one charge from an occurrence in St. Andrews and several other 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, carrying a concealed weapon and another of carelessly using a firearm or ammunition.

Other charges include three assaults, two mischief 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 that there are still some outstanding charges pending ongoing investigations into other allegations against him.
