PICTOU – The Supreme Court jury trial of a River John man facing 50 charges has been adjourned.
Jury selection for the trial of 34-year-old Daniel Michael Bradley was scheduled to take place Monday, but the entire trial was postponed when it was announced that the Crown attorney was ill and unable to attend court.
Bradley has in custody since his April 2011 arrest. He is facing multiple theft and possession of stolen property charges. Some of the alleged stolen items include, vehicles, car engines and kitchen cupboards.
He was initially charged in 2011, following an RCMP raid of a Maxwell Road residence in Salt Springs. He is also facing 19 counts of having firearms in his possession without licenses and five counts of improper storage of firearms and a charge of break, enter and theft from a cottage on Christmas Day and two counts of failing to stop while being pursued by police on two separate occasions.
Bradley was originally scheduled to stand trial this past fall, but it was adjourned until Monday. A new trial date will need to be selected since the trial didn’t begin as scheduled. More than a week has been set aside in the past for the trial to take place.
