WEDNESDAY, FEB. 9: A Pembroke man who allegedly had a loaded gun, drugs and money in his home during a police raid had a date set for a future hearing today.

Jakai Harford, 28, was charged last month in Magistrates’ Court with possessing $14,906 of cocaine and $5,300 of cannabis with intent to supply.

He was further charged with possession of a nine milimetre firearm and ammunition for the gun.

Mr. Harford was also charged with knowingly handling the gun and ammunition.

Today, Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner set March 1 as the date for his long form preliminary inquiry.

A preliminary inquiry is a hearing where the Magistrate will decide if there is enough evidence to send the matter to the Supreme Court for trial.

The charges are indictable, which means Mr. Harford was not required to plea because the matter must be heard in the Supreme Court.
