Jail time earned for cabin break-ins
A young man who broke into several cabins and cottages and stole a whole slew of items will have plenty of time to think about his actions while in jail.
Damian Roy Brewer, 21, was sentenced to 16-and-a-half months (495 days) for breaking into nine cabins scattered along the main road between Placentia and Colinet. Placentia RCMP eventually retrieved the stolen goods from a home in New Bridge, St. Mary’s Bay.
Brewer previously pleaded guilty to all charges stemming from the break-and-enters, which took place in May of this year. He also pleaded guilty to arson and theft of a motor vehicle. That vehicle in question was later burned after it was used to access the cabins.
Once he is released, Brewer will be on probation for two years. His alleged accomplice, 23-year-old Chad Clarke, has pleaded not guilty to similar charges — unlike Brewer, he is not charged with possessing stolen property. Clarke’s trial is scheduled to take place in the new year.
This Volvo was destroyed after it was used to target several cabins and cottages located between Placentia and Colinet.
These items were retrieved after Placentia RCMP executed a search warrant at a home in New Bridge, St. Mary’s Bay.
