Robbery accused released on conditions
SYDNEY —A Scotchtown man facing charges including robbery was released from custody after pleading guilty to previously breaching his release conditions. Daniel Blake Conrod, 26, was released on conditions in December and arrested in January with breaching the conditions. He pleaded guilty to the breach and was sentenced to one-day served by his presence in court. Conrod had spent 29 days on remand as a result of the breach. He is also charged with armed robbery and two counts of breaching court orders in connection with a hold-up last October at a New Waterford taxi stand.
A trial on those charges is now set for Aug. 28.
Among the conditions of his release, Conrod is to refrain from alcohol and drugs not prescribed him by a physician, adhere to a curfew and is to have no contact with the co-accused in the robbery case.
The trial for the co-accused will continue in June.
