Bail hearing set for New Waterford accused
SYDNEY — A New Waterford man is to return to provincial court Aug. 13 for a bail hearing. Daniel George MacKinnon, 47, of Heelan Street, is charged with possession of instruments that could be used in a breakin (screwdriver and chisel) and with breaching a court order. He was charged earlier this week after Cape Breton Regional Police received a report of a suspicious man checking around properties and storage sheds. After brief court appearance Thursday, MacKinnon consented to a further remand pending the outcome of his bail hearing.
