A 35-year-old Kingston man wanted on six warrants was found and arrested, and is now facing a litany of charges, according to Kingston Police.
The man was involved in a series of illegal behaviour, and became an issue to local police on Monday, July 30, 2018. At approximately 10 a.m. that day, the man pulled out of a driveway on Alfred Street. A nearby patrol officer ran the vehicle’s licence plates and found the plates were not registered. The vehicle suddenly accelerated, ran a stop sign, and failed to stop when the officer activated his emergency lights and sirens.
The vehicle was found abandoned on St. Catherine Street, where it had struck a park truck, according to a press release from Kingston Police. When the vehicle was searched, officers found property belonging to the accused man, as well as a Taser on the front seat.
On Tuesday, Oct. 9, members of the east region Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement (ROPE) squad located the accused at a Queen Mary Road address, where he was hiding under a small child’s bed with his feet sticking out. He was wanted on four warrants from Kingston Police and two warrants from the Napanee Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).
The man was arrested and is facing 17 charges including: dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop for police, leaving the scene of an accident, unlicensed possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon while prohibited, uttering threats, and 11 counts of breach of probation.
