SYD­NEY — A Glace Bay man has waived his right to a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing and will ap­pear in Supreme Court in March to re­ceive a trial date. John Al­fred Far­rell, 44, of Reser­voir Av­enue, is charged with four counts of pos­ses­sion for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing in­volv­ing co­caine and mar­i­juana and sin­gle counts of pos­ses­sion of a pro­hib­ited weapon, un­safe stor­age of a firearm and pos­ses­sion of a firearm with­out a li­cence. Far­rell has elected to be tried by judge and jury and is to ap­pear March 6 in Supreme Court to re­ceive a trial date. The of­fences are al­leged to have oc­curred in Glace Bay in 2016.

In stay­ing the charges, the Crown has the op­tion of re­fil­ing the same charges within one year. If not re­filed, the charges are dis­missed.
