The Timmins Police Service has charged a local man with Criminal Code offences stemming from incidents that occurred on Saturday, July 23 and resumed on Sunday July 24 at a Jaguar Drive apartment building.

Timmins Police Service officers responded to a disturbance between fellow tenants of the Jaguar Drive apartment building and determined that one of the tenants had repeatedly issued threats to the other tenants.

At one point, the one tenant proceeded to smash the unit’s mailboxes with his bare hands which led up to a physical altercation with one of the other tenants.

The subject was taken into custody by the Timmins Police Service yesterday afternoon.

Based on the outcome of the incidents, William Hamilton, 53, of Timmins, has been charged with:

  • 4 counts of utter threats contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada
  • Assault contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada
  • Mischief under $5000 contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada

The accused person remains in police custody awaiting a Bail Hearing slated for this morning at the Ontario Court of Justice in Timmins to answer to the charges laid against him.
