Trial date set for former RCMP officer charged with weapons offences on P.E.I.

Charlottetown provincial court.

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - A former RCMP officer who is facing 12 charges, including several weapons offences, will be going to trial in January.

Jeffrey Rae Gillis wasn’t in court Monday where Chief Judge Nancy Orr set a date for the trial, which is scheduled to last about four weeks.

That trial starts Jan. 23, 2017, with three weeks also scheduled in March.

The charges against Gillis include unlawful storage of firearms, possession of firearms obtained by an offence and unlawful possession of firearms.

Nova Scotia’s Serious Incident Response Team (SIRT) started an investigation in February after Charlottetown police responded to an alleged incident at Gillis’s home.

While investigating that matter, Charlottetown police allegedly found numerous firearms.
