Lance Gordon Phillips, 26, was charged last week after RCMP investigators dismantled what is believed to have been a meth lab in a trailer located on Matheson Drive in Salmon River.
Phillips is facing a number of charges including unlawful possession of chemicals known to produce a controlled substance - methamphetamine, and unlawfully producing a substance - methamphetamine - under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
He now is also facing firearms charges after police allege that they found a loaded 12-guage shotgun and loose ammunition in his car.
His release from custody was granted with the approval of both federal and provincial Crown attorney after a release plan was filed with the court.
Phillips was also required to post a $1,000 surety while his mother, Patricia MacLeod posted a $1,000 cash bond and a $2,000 surety.
He must also reside at his mother’s residence at 15 Easthill Court in Hilden and adhere to a 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew. Phillips is permitted to work while released on bail but must travel directly from his residence to work and back again.
He is also banned from a list of chemicals and ingredients that could be used to manufacture meth, must not possess any firearms or weapons and must not have communication with anyone with a known criminal record.
Phillips is scheduled to return to provincial court in Truro on Jan. 30 to enter a plea.
