Queen Charlotte man faces serious charges

  • Jun. 18, 2004 10:00 a.m.

Police charged a Queen Charlotte man with uttering threats and possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose after an incident on the morning of June 9.
The man went to a residence at the eastern edge of Queen Charlotte wielding two knives and uttering death threats, police said. The accused was retaliating to a previous assault earlier this year. Nobody was injured. Police charged and released the man.
The same day, police arrested an intoxicated man after an incident at a Skidegate home. The man had refused to leave when asked, so the homeowner called police and the man fled the scene. Police said they picked him up, held him for a time and released him without charges.
Surveillance cameras caught a thief at Queen Charlotte Secondary School on June 8. One student stole an undisclosed amount of money from the wallet of another student during class time. When the theft was reported to school authorities, they immediately checked the security system, and identified the thief. Police say they arrested the accused, charged and released him.
A man dented a police car with his fist after being pulled over for speeding at the corner of 4th Ave in Skidegate on June 10. Police say he was pulled over for speeding, became enraged and punched the police car hard enough to leave a dent. As well as receiving a traffic ticket, the man is charged with mischief.
