Arrest on warrants and drugs

Belleville, ON – On the 22nd of November at 5:30 am, police were called to an address in the city’s east end with regards to a report of a suspicious male trying to get into a residence and a car. He was thought by the caller to have a hand gun on him. While searching the area police located 36 year old Joseph Parks, of Belleville, laying in a pile of ruble at the side of the residence. Parks looked to be sleeping with what appeared to be a hand gun in his hand. Attending officers were aware that there were outstanding arrest warrants for Parks, who was immediately taken into custody and the gun, which turned out to be a pellet gun, was seized. A subsequent search of Parks also produced illegal narcotics. The Belleville resident was held for a bail hearing at 1:00 pm where he was released on a recognizance of bail by a Justice of the Peace. He was given a court date of December 12th to answer to the charges that include two counts of fail to appear in court, possession of a weapon dangerous, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, break and enter and possession of break and enter tools.
