Unwanted Person leads to arrest and drug charges:
A 40 year old Brockville man is facing charges of being unlawfully in a dwelling and possession of a controlled substance as a result of police receiving a complaint of unwanted person in a Laurier Avenue apartment.
At 10:25 a.m. yesterday morning officers attended to the apartment buildings at the corner of Laurier Boulevard and Kensington Parkway after receiving a complaint of squatters being in one of the apartments. When officers arrived they found three
Brockville men inside the unit who were not allowed to be on the premises. Two of the men left and returned to their own residence while the 40 year old man was found to be in possession of a controlled substance.
As a result he is now facing charges of being unlawfully in the dwelling and possession of a controlled substance. He was released from custody with a future court date.
Stolen Vehicle Recovered:
While on routine patrol in the overnight hours officers spotted a blue 2013 Toyota Rav 4 on Fairknowe Drive in the parking lot of the apartment complex at 6 Fairknowe. When officers did a query of the license plate they learned the vehicle had been reported as
stolen earlier from Gananoque.
Brockville Police then contacted their partners in Gananoque and arrangements were made to have the vehicle towed and held for forensic examination.
