The Timmins Police Service arrested a local resident on the strength of an arrest warrant that was executed yesterday evening in Schumacher.

While responding to a disturbance in progress at a Dwyer Street address, 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 order was restored, the validity of the warrant was confirmed, the subject was arrested by the Timmins Police Service.

As a result, Nikeya Faries, 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.
