One man, multiple charges

Pictou Advocate Court

PICTOU – A New Glasgow man is facing a range of charges from a number of different incidents in the county.

Jeffrey  Lawrence Gammon, 28, pleaded guilty provincial court to one charge of theft under $5,000 on March 30 of this year; he also pleaded guilty to an April 2 incident of theft of merchandise less than $5,000. On April 10 in New Glasgow, Gammon was charged with one count of possession of property obtained by a crime, theft of merchandise as well as possession of cannabis less than 30 grams, and he changed his plea to guilty for one count of mischief. From the same date, the Crown also withdrew one count of possession of property obtained by a crime.

A guilty plea was also entered to one count of mischief from an April 10 incident. A May 22 incident saw Gammon plead guilty to theft, mischief and being at large on a recognizance.
After a May 22 incident in New Glasgow, the accused faced 11 counts of being at large of a recognizance, two counts of theft, eight counts of defrauding two different businesses and one count of attempting to defraud a business. Gammon pleaded guilty to the two counts of theft, four counts of being at large on a recognizance and three counts of defrauding businesses. The Crown withdrew the rest of the charges except  one count of attempting to defraud a business.
