File # 2020-8998

On September 3 at 6:00 p.m., Oceanside RCMP responded to a report of a disturbance on Smithers Road in Errington. One of the parties involved in the disturbance alleged that during the altercation, a firearm was pointed at them in a threatening manner.

As a result of the allegation, officers located and arrested the suspect at his residence on Smithers Road. During the arrest, officers witnessed items in plain view that lead them to believe there were illegal items within the home. A search warrant was drafted and judicially approved in order to search the residencefurther.

The search yielded a moderate amount of illicit drugs, cash and several replica firearms.

The 35 year old suspect was later released from custody on several conditions. He will make his first appearance in Provincial Court in November.
