Fight at Ontario Northland depot nets possession charges

Reports of a shot fired, and suspect found in possession of bullet casing

An altercation at a bus terminal on The Kingsway, which may have involved discharging a firearm, led to the arrest of a 22-year-old man on possession charges, said Greater Sudbury Police.

Officers were called to the Ontario Northland Bus Terminal on May 8 around 5:20 p.m.  Information provided was that multiple men had been involved in a verbal argument that turned into a physical altercation, and it was believed that a gunshot was heard prior to the men leaving the area. 

When they arrived, officers found one of the men with minor injuries. He was arrested, and when officers searched him, they found $1,800 in cash and almost 30 grams of what is believed to be cocaine.

He was taken to police headquarters. Police searched the man’s bag and found 1.35 grams of what is believed to be cocaine, as well as a bullet casing.

The suspect has been charged with possession of a Schedule I substance for the purpose of trafficking under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. He was held in custody overnight and will attend bail court today, May 9, to answer to the charge. His name cannot be released as the information has not yet been sworn to through the Court process.

Detectives are looking to identify and speak with the other individuals involved in this incident.

Anyone with information related to the identities of those involved or with information related to this incident is asked to contact Police at 705-675-9171 or Crime Stoppers at 705-222-8477.
