SUMMERSIDE - A Summerside man was sentenced to 26 months in federal custody Monday on three counts of possession of drugs for the purposes of trafficking.
Terry Albert Glenn Allen, 49, received the sentence after police found cocaine and hydromorphone prescription pills in his home on May 27, July 26 and Aug. 20.
Allen has no prior drug convictions but did have an extensive criminal record between 1981 and 1992, and a conviction for fraud in 2007.
Crown attorney David O'Brien said Allen appeared to have no issues with drug addiction.
Police seized digital scales and packaging materials during the searches as well as $6,460 in cash.
O'Brien argued that Allen's two subsequent offences since the initial charge in May were an aggravating factor.
Cocaine and hydromorphone are Schedule 1 drugs, meaning they are dangerous and highly addictive, the Crown's reasoning behind seeking a federal sentence.
Allen, who has been in custody since Aug. 20, was sentenced to 28 months in jail but was given credit for 60 days of time already served.
Lantz also imposed a 10-year weapons prohibition and Allen must provide a DNA sample for the national crime database. He must also forfeit the $6,460 seized during the investigation.
