The Timmins Police Service has charged a Chapleau area man stemming from an early morning “unwanted person” incident which occurred in the downtown core of Timmins.

Timmins Police Service officers responded to a call for service at a hotel parking garage where they interviewed two persons who were the subject of the complaint. During the interview, one of the men is alleged to have provided a false name to the police. This man fled on foot while the officers completed the arrest of the 2nd man under safety provisions of the Liquor Licence Act

A short while later, a second complaint was received by the Timmins Police Service regarding the same male subject. He was located and, once his identity had been confirmed, was taken into police custody.

While being processed at the police station, the man is alleged to have verbalized a threat towards one of the arresting officers.

As a result of this incident, Fredrick NESHAWABIN, 47, of Chapleau, has been charged with:
– Personation with Intent to Mislead Police contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada – Utter Threats contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada – 3 counts of Fail To Comply with Recognizance contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada

The accused remains in police custody awaiting a bail hearing slated for this morning at Provincial Court in Timmins to answer to the charges laid against him.
