Const. Dave Emerley of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit shows drugs seized as part of Project Titan

East Coast court date for White Rock man arrested in ‘Project Titan’ bust

A preliminary inquiry into the case against Arlen Nathan Hodge is set for Jan. 7 and 8.

A White Rock man arrested last May in connection with “one of the biggest drug busts” in Newfoundland and Labrador’s history is due back in court on the East Coast next week.

According to the Provincial Court of Newfoundland and Labrador docket, a preliminary inquiry into the case against Arlen Nathan Hodge is scheduled for Jan. 7 and 8.

Preliminary inquiries are held to determine if there is enough evidence to go to trial.

Hodge was arrested in St. John’s, Nfld. on May 6 and faces charges of trafficking and possessing a controlled drug or substance.

In announcing an arrest, officers with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit described a month-long investigation dubbed ‘Project Titan’ and search warrants that led to the seizure of “10 kilograms of cocaine, 300 pounds of marijuana, two kilograms of pure MDMA and two kilograms of a substance known as ‘shatter’, which is a chemical derived from marijuana.”

Hodge was released from custody following a bail review in June.
