Aging drug and cigarette case continues
Two Brooklyn residents charged nearly two years ago with producing and trafficking large amounts of drugs and other alleged crimes finally have a trial date. Craig Allan Whynot and Jennifer Lynn Westhaver, both in their early thirties, of Sandy Cove Road, Brooklyn appeared in Bridgewater Provincial Court last month. Their trial date on the drug related charges is 9:30 a.m. June 30 in Liverpool Provincial Court. A plea date of July 14 in Liverpool has been set for alleged charges related to illegal cigarettes at which time a firearms charge for Whynot will be heard as well. Queens RCMP and officers from the South Shore Integrated Street Crime Unit executed search warrants Sept. 28, 2007 at 4106 Sandy Cove Road in Brooklyn and in an outbuilding at 43 Pleasant St., Milton. They seized over 100 pounds of marijuana, 5,225 illegal cigarettes, two firearms, and a crossbow. Whynot is charged with production of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and unsafe storage of a firearm contrary to the criminal code. Westhaver is charged with production of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. The outbuilding revealed a large marijuana indoor drying operation. Plants were being dried, dropped and readied for distribution in the building. The Brooklyn house and outbuilding contained individual bags of differing weights of cultivated marijuana, unsafely stored firearms and the unstamped cigarettes.
