Man stole vehicle, fired pellet gun at residence, Timmins police say

A 55-year-old suspect has been charged with 10 offences following incidents in late September and early this month in Timmins.

Both incidents place at a Cameron Street address in the city and one involved a stolen vehicle.

“The suspect had attended at a Cameron Street South residential address on two separate occasions and proceeded to discharge a pellet gun towards the residence,” Timmins police said in a news release Wednesday.

“On both occasions, once on Sept. 27 and the second on Oct. 2, the residence sustained damage. Based on investigation, it was determined that the suspect had used a vehicle without the owner’s consent on one of the occasions.”

The suspect was identified using CCTV footage and police located and arrested the suspect. Charges include mischief, car theft, firearms offences, criminal harassment, probation violations and driving while suspended.

The same suspect was charged with arson in connection with an incident in May, also on Cameron Street. In 2020 he was charged with hurling dog poop at his neighbour’s car during a dispute.

The suspect remains in police custody awaiting his next court appearance slated for Oct. 6 in the Ontario Court of Justice. Top Stories
