'One final' delay promised in proceeds of crime case
BRIDGEWATER - Defence counsel for a Blockhouse man facing proceeds of crime charges promises "one more adjournment" is needed before the case proceeds.
Last week in Bridgewater provincial court, Judge Jim Burrill agreed with a defence request asking for a postponement to September 3.
Brian Gregory Langille, 61, faces two counts of possessing property knowing it was obtained by crime, the property being Canadian currency in the amounts of $127,033.99 and $136,361.93.
Mr. Langille also faces one count of using or dealing with money with intent to conceal or convert it knowing it was obtained by crime.
The three charges date between January 1, 2002, and February 28, 2007.
It was on February 28, 2007, that police descended on Mr. Langille's Northwest Road property and needed to use a 26-foot rental truck to remove electronics, tools, sporting goods and household items. Lunenburg County RCMP also seized a large quantity of marijuana, thousands of dollars worth of cocaine, cash and firearms.
In November, Mr. Langille was sentenced to serve 34 months after pleading guilty to six of 17 allegations he faced at the time, which included possession of both cocaine and marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, three counts of possessing weapons and ammunition while prohibited by court order, and one charge of unsafe storage of a firearm.
