The Timmins Police Service arrested a local resident on the strength of an arrest warrant that was executed early this morning in Timmins.

In the course of completing crime abatement patrols in the area of Balsam Street South and Algonquin Blvd, a Timmins Police Service officer recognized a female subject as being a “wanted person” named in a current arrest warrant held by the Timmins Police.

Once the validity of the warrant was confirmed, the subject was arrested by the Timmins Police Service.

As a result, Jeanette Okimaw, 24, of Timmins was arrested on the strength of the warrant.

She remains in police custody awaiting a bail hearing slated for today at the Ontario Court of Justice in Timmins to answer to the charges that resulted in the Arrest Warrant being issued.
