January 01st Media Release

Happy New Year!! 

For the last 24 hours:

Arrest Warrants Executed:

At about 7:30 AM Friday morning, members attended to a residence in the 200 block 26th Street and while there encountered a 34 year-old male who was wanted on outstanding warrants for arrest.  The accused was taken into custody on the strength of the warrants which were for a total of five counts of failing to comply with conditions of a Release Order he is currently bound by.  He appeared before the court later in the morning and was remanded into custody.

Just before 12:00 PM Friday, a 19 year-old male attended to BPS as a condition of an Undertaking he is bound by currently.  A query showed that he was the subject of a warrant for arrest for failing to comply with a Probation Order and Failing to Attend Court.  He was arrested, processed, and later released from custody to appear in Court on February 28th.

 

Break & Enter Suspect Arrested:

A 20 year-old male was arrested outside of a premise in the 2100 block Ottawa Avenue at around 8:40 PM Friday evening, after being observed breaking into a room within the complex.  Investigation revealed that the male had forced his way into the building, then broke into a storage room and stole property from within.  When located, the suspect was in possession of break-in tools, as well as a stolen credit card that he had unlawfully used previously.  The accused will appear before the Court this morning facing numerous charges.

 

Impaired Driver Protests:

At about 12:45 AM Saturday morning, a traffic stop resulted in the 42 year-old male driver being issued an Immediate Roadside Prohibition from driving.  Approximately 4 hours later, the same male attended to BPS and began a protest, parading around the front entranceway, outside.  Police spoke with him regularly and he denied offers to take him home.  After about an hour, his speech was making less sense, he was becoming more agitated so he was arrested for his own safety as it appeared he was unable to care for himself in the extreme cold.  He will be released once he is sober enough that it can be done so safely.

 

Others:

A 23 year-old female was taken into custody to prevent a continued breach of the peace after Police were called to a residence on Cornell Bay.  She will be held until sober and able to care for herself.

A 36 year-old male was also held to sober up, to prevent an offence from occurring, after he tried to gain entry into the residence of his estranged partner in an attempt to take their child to another community.  He was intoxicated and was deemed unable to care for himself or his daughter.
