Glace Bay drug case

A Glace Bay man has been sentenced to jail while drug charges against two other men have been dropped.

Police were called to a house on Oceancrest Drive in February after reports of a man with a gun.  They found a weapon duyring a search of the home, and also drugs.

23 year old Jordan William Oakes pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine and marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and was sentenced to two years less a day.  He’s been in custody on remand since the incident.

Drug charges were then dropped against 24 year old Michael Norman Knox and 27 year old Corey James DeCoste.  DeCoste did plead guilty to a weapons charge and will be sentenced August 28.
