A scary incident on Patrick Street earlier this week has led to numerous charges against a 29-year-old man.

On May 8 around 10 p.m., Sault Ste. Marie police say a man entered a residence in the 300 block of Patrick Street and damaged property. The man was carrying a gun during the incident and proceeded to load it, police allege.

A person who knew the man was inside the residence, but managed to leave without being injured, police say.

The following day, officers located and arrested the suspect at a residence on Maple Street.

Michael Hogan-Denis is charged with:

  • possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose
  • unauthorized possession of a firearm
  • careless use of a firearm
  • firearm: use while committing offence
  • possession of a firearm knowing its possession is unauthorized
  • firearm or weapon: possession contrary to prohibition order (x3)
  • breaking, entering and committing
  • mischief under $5,000
  • breach of probation – failing to keep the peace and be of good behaviour

He was held in custody pending a bail hearing. None of the allegations have been tested in court and the accused is considered innocent unless proven guilty.
