Police Report

On Feb. 14 RCMP attended a Clearwater home and arrested a local male who was wanted on a warrant for breaching his conditional sentence order (CSO). A CSO can be ordered by a judge after a person is found guilty of an offence in court, instead of sentencing the person to a prison term. When this occurs, the individual must abide by a set of strict conditions in order to stay out of prison and serve his sentence at home. In this case this person breached by choosing not to abide by all of his conditions. This led to the person being arrested and taken before a judge to explain why he didn't behave.

Man arrested for breaching his CSO

On Feb. 14 RCMP attended a Clearwater home and arrested a local male who was wanted on a warrant for breaching his conditional sentence order (CSO). A CSO can be ordered by a judge after a person is found guilty of an offence in court, instead of sentencing the person to a prison term. When this occurs, the individual must abide by a set of strict conditions in order to stay out of prison and serve his sentence at home. In this case this person breached by choosing not to abide by all of his conditions. This led to the person being arrested and taken before a judge to explain why he didn’t behave.

While at the residence arresting the man, two rifles were found leaning against a wall. The guns were unregistered and obviously insecure. It was also ascertained that the man was prohibited from owning firearms.

The male is in custody until at least Feb.18 when he will be seeing a judge on the breach and on the new weapons charges.
