A second Lethbridge man charged following a police investigation into property theft earlier this year has been released from custody.
Nelson Myles Mumford, 35, was released late last week from remand custody at the Lethbridge Correctional Centre on $250 cash bail and several conditions, including he report weekly to the Picture Butte RCMP and not have any contact with several individuals, including  a co-accused, Donovan James Holmberg. Mumford must also reside at a specific address in Picture Butte and obey a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day, and he must stay out of Lethbridge, not be in a motor vehicle without the registered owner, and not possess any weapons.
Mumford and Holmberg, 36, are jointly charged with three counts of possession of an unauthorized firearm, three counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000, two counts of possession of a firearm in a vehicle, theft under $5,000, possession of a prohibited firearm, and possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm with ammunition.
Police received a report on May 28 of property theft from a residence in the 500 block of 26 Street South, and a subsequent investigation resulted in the arrest of two men at a residence in the 1600 block of 2 Avenue North, where police seized three firearms, ammunition, bear spray and stolen property, including a vehicle.
Holmberg was released from custody June 16 under the supervision of a surety – his girlfriend’s mother – and placed on 24-hour house arrest at her residence. He is also bound by several conditions, including he report to the Lethbridge Police Service twice a week, and not possess weapons, consume drugs, contact Mumford and drive a motor vehicle. The surety is also responsible for the payment of $1,000 and obligated to call police if Holmberg breaches any of his conditions. She can, however, ask at any time to be removed as surety.
The matters for both accused are scheduled to return to court July 26.
