A 52-year-old Winnipeg man will appear in a Kenora, Ont. court next week to face a number of charges that stem from a ‘suspicious person’ report made to the Ontario Provincial Police on Wednesday night.
Police said they were called to a location near Highway 17 and Shoal Lake 40, about a man who had jumped into the back of a pickup truck. A search determined there were warrants out for his arrest in Manitoba and British Columbia, and police seized cash, drug paraphernalia, and illicit substances including oxycodone.
