Ray Noftall was found not guilty this morning of charges of armed robbery, possessing a weapon dangerous to the public, pointing a firearm, using a firearm in the commission of an offence and uttering threats.

Justice Donald Burrage said witnesses in the case were not credible and unreliable.

He told Noftall he was free to go. Noftall smiled and waved to reporters as he left the courtroom at Newfoundland Supreme Court in St. John’s.

The charges arose from an incident that was said to have happened March 12, 2012, at a home in Cowan Heights.
