Ingonish man released after bond increased
SYDNEY — An Ingonish man has again been released on conditions after being charged with three counts of breaching his previous release orders. Patrick William Powers, 25, was released Friday after being arrested earlier this week and is to return to court Feb. 16 to enter pleas on the breaches. He was released prior on a host of conditions after being charged with tobacco and drug offences. The breaches are alleged to have occurred in January. Powers was previously released on a $2,000 bond but that was raised to $3,000 to secure the latest release. Powers is also scheduled back in court Oct. 2 for a trial on the tobacco and drug offences.
