An individual from Addington Highlands Township is facing multiple charges after the Lennox and Addington (L&A) County Community Street Crime Unit (CSCU) investigated multiple property-related incidents that occurred in L&A County, as well as Frontenac and Centre Hastings.
In January 2023, the L&A County CSCU began an investigation into several break-and-enters, thefts, and other property-related incidents that occurred in the above jurisdictions, according to a release from the OPP.
On Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023, officers responded to an incident where a vehicle was taken without consent, and the victim was subsequently threatened. The OPP said that the suspect was not located, but investigation revealed it to be the same suspect involved in several other multi-jurisdictional incidents.
As a result of the investigation, on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2023, members of the L&A County CSCU arrested and charged Dylan Godfrey-Kellar, 27 years old, of Addington Highlands Township, with:
- Two counts – Break and enter a place with intent to commit an indictable offence
- Possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000
- Theft under $5,000
- Theft of a motor vehicle under $5,000
- Take motor vehicle without consent
- Uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm
- Two counts – Possession of firearm or ammunition contrary to a prohibition order
- Four counts – Failure to comply with a probation order
- Two counts – Failure to comply with an undertaking
Kingstonist inquired with the OPP with regard to what the firearm-related charges stem from, what type of firearm the accused was in possession of, and whether the firearm was involved in threatening the victim whose vehicle was allegedly taken by the accused without consent. Kingstonist has also asked where the vehicle was taken without consent from.
“The vehicle taken without consent was an incident out of Addington Highlands Township,” said Constable Brianna Raison, Community Safety/Media Relations Officer for the OPP East Region, in response to those inquiries. “I cannot speak as to the specifics of the firearm as that would be considered evidence now before the courts and could compromise the case, however the firearm was not directly/physically used in any of the incidents.”
The OPP said that the accused was held in custody pending a bail hearing.
