Bad Timing - No Luck at All


Belleville, Ontario  If you are going to carry your stash under your hoodie, do not let it fall out onto the parking lot at Tim Hortons in front of the sharp eyed officer in the drive through line up.  A 19 year old male of no fixed address scrambled to pick up his stash and ran off on foot being pursued by the officer.  This male was apprehended several blocks away by other officers who attended to assist.  The accused has been held in custody for a show cause hearing this date charged with Possession for the purpose of trafficking (marijuana) under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and two counts of Breach of a Recognizance.   Further to this and as a result of two more ongoing police investigations involving separate incidents, this male has also been charged with Theft under $5,000, Mischief under $5,000, Fail to Remain at the Scene of an Accident, Possession of Stolen Property x 2 and another count of Breach of Recognizance.
