Mar 22 2012
Lucky Jhagra, the former firearms manager at Island Outfitters, has been released from custody on $50,000 bail.
Jhagra is facing 14 charges in connection with the alleged theft of more than 100 firearms from the store between 2008 and 2012. The charges include theft, fraud, careless use of a firearm, unsafe storage of a firearm, possession of a weapon obtained through an offence and six counts of trafficking firearms.
At the end of a two-hour bail hearing Wednesday, Victoria provincial court Judge Adrian Brooks granted Jhagra release with conditions that require him to put up a surety worth $50,000.
The conditions placed on Jhagra, 40, include a ban on contact with any owner or employee of Island Outfitters. He must not have contact or communication with anyone to whom he has sold firearms, Brooks said.
Jhagra must remain in Canada and is only allowed to leave B.C. with the written consent of his bail supervisor.
Jhagra is not allowed to possess any weapons or attend any gun shops.
Jhagra's next court appearance is scheduled for June 5.
