The Timmins Police Service arrested a local resident on the strength of an arrest warrant which was executed at a Cedar Street North address on Saturday, Feb. 20.

While attending at a call for service regarding a disturbance between two male persons, the Timmins Police Service officer recognized one of the male parties involved 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, Kerry Quachegan, 34 of Timmins, was arrested on the strength of the warrant.

He remained in police custody and attended a bail hearing where he was released on strict conditions including having to attend at Provincial Court in Timmins on March 3 to answer to charges stemming from a previous incident resulting in the arrest warrant being issued.
