A Webbwood resident, 24, is facing charges after a trespassing complaint at an Espanola business.

Police say on Sunday around 11:28 a.m., officers responded to the complaint and determined that the two persons involved were on conditions not to be together from a previous domestic violence investigation.

Later that day, police located and arrested the person breaching their release conditions, who was also found to be in possession of $1350 worth of suspected cocaine and heroin.

As a result, the suspect was charged with:

  • Failure to comply with release order - other than to attend court, contrary to section 145(5)(a) of the Criminal Code (CC),
  • Possession of a schedule 1 substance - cocaine, contrary to section 4(1) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA); and
  • Possession of a schedule 1 substance for the purpose of trafficking - heroin, contrary to section 5(2) of the CDSA.

The accused was released on an undertaking and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice on November 2020, in Espanola.

The OPP will not be releasing the name of the accused in order to protect the identity of the victim.
