TIMMINS POLICE CHARGE LOCAL MAN WITH BREACH OF RECOGNIZANCE AND PERSONATION

The Timmins Police Service has charged a local man with a number of Criminal Code offences stemming from an incident which occurred during the afternoon hours of Tuesday, August 6th.
On July 18th, 2019, a local man appeared in Provincial Court in Timmins in answer to a number of drug related charges.
The accused was released on a Recognizance of Bail with one of the terms being “to remain in his residence daily except and unless he is in the presence of his surety”.
On August 6th, 2019 the accused person was observed by the Timmins Police in the parking lot of a local grocery store on Algonquin Blvd West in Timmins absent his surety and allegedly contrary to the conditions imposed upon him by the court.
When confronted by a Timmins Police Service officer, the man is further alleged to have provided a false name and fictitious date of birth to the officer.
The suspect was arrested at the scene and taken into police custody.
Based on the ensuing investigation, Edgar TURGEON, 30, of Timmins, has been charged with:
– Personation with Intent contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada
– 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 address the charges laid against him.
