A 30-year-old woman from Burlington is now facing multiple charges after being stopped for behaving suspiciously in central Kingston.
On Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018, at approximately 11 a.m., a Kingston Police patrol officer observed a woman acting in a suspicious manner while she was walking on Princess Street near the Kingston Centre with a man who was known to the officer. The officer stopped the pair to investigate and, when the woman identified herself, the officer believed she was providing a false name. The officer cautioned the woman about obstructing police, and the woman provided another name. The officer again deemed that to have been a false name and placed the woman under arrest, at which point she provided a third name, which was also determined to be false, according to a press release from Kingston Police.
A search of the accused woman found that she was in possession of a concealed spring-loaded knife.
The woman was arrested and is charged with: obstructing police; possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace; carrying a concealed weapon; five counts of breach of recognizance; one count of breach of undertaking; and one count of breach of probation.
