Bay Roberts home invasion case heading to trial
The case of a Bay Roberts man accused of breaking into a home and confronting its owner before fleeing in the victim’s vehicle appears to be destined for trial.
Bradley Frank Adams remains in custody and appeared in Harbour Grace Provincial Court by videolink last Tuesday. His lawyer, Kevin Baker, said his client would elect to have the case heard in provincial court. Baker asked for more time to discuss issues with Adams before settling on potential trial dates. The case will return to court July 6.
Adams is charged with robbery, break and enter, theft of a motor vehicle, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, concealing his identity with a mask and obstructing an officer by giving a false name.
It’s alleged he entered a home on New Found Lane in Bay Roberts and confronted a woman inside. He was arrested June 5 in Whitbourne, where the woman’s vehicle was also recovered. Adams has remained in custody ever since.
