The Timmins Police Service has charged a local man with Criminal Code offences stemming from a disturbance which occurred near the intersection of Cedar Street and Algonquin Boulevard early this morning, June 19.

While completing general patrols of the downtown core of Timmins, a Timmins Police Service officer observed an altercation taking place between two men.

The officer halted the disturbance and interviewed both parties. Based on the ensuing investigation, it was determined that one of the men was bound by conditions imposed by the courts in regards to a curfew and having to keep the peace and be of good behaviour. Once the grounds were confirmed, the suspect was arrested by the Timmins Police Service.

As a result of this incident, Mark Gunner, 34, of Timmins, has been charged with:

  • Fail to comply with recognizance contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada
  • Fail to comply with probation order contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada

The suspect 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.
