SUDBURY -- The Timmins Police Service has charged a local young person with a number of criminal offences following the execution of a search warrant at a Wilson Avenue residence April 9.

"Based on an ongoing investigation into the death of a 16-year-old male person that occurred locally on April 4, a search warrant was executed allowing entry into the residence," police said in a news release Tuesday.
