On August 29, 2019, at approximately 12:30 am an officer on patrol observed a motorcycle westbound on Confederation Street suddenly turn into a private driveway and turn off the lights to the motorcycle. Further attention was drawn to the officer when he observed the suspect get on top of a ledge belonging to a delivery truck to get in behind the truck that was parked in the driveway. The officer turned his cruiser around to investigate the matter further but by the time the officer returned the individual had left the area.
Other officers were contacted to assist in a search of area and the suspect was located exiting from a backyard on Campbell Street.
As the investigation continued a quantity of suspected methamphetamine was also located along with a “flick” knife (opened easily with centrifugal force) which is a prohibited weapon. It was also determined that the accused was also a prohibited driver along with a number of other infractions.

Unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon
Driving while under suspension
