Christian Island man facing weapons charges

Man, 36, charged with two counts of carrying concealed weapon


An officer from the Southern Georgian Bay OPP detachment, while patrolling Birchwood Drive, Midland, conducted a trail-side check of two off-road motorcycles at 4:59 p.m. April 26.

One motorcycle, an orange-coloured KTM, fled the scene and remains outstanding and the remaining motorcycle with two occupants was detained for equipment violations.

As a result of this investigation, the passenger was identified as Chad Miles King, 36, of Christian Island and arrested on an outstanding warrant as part of another ongoing investigation.

Further investigation of property the accused had in his possession resulted in the seizure of an edged weapon.

As a result, the accused has been charged and held for bail on charges of carrying a concealed weapon (two counts) contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada and will appear before the Ontario Court of Justice  at a future date.
