Drug Possession in Niagara Falls

Police say that the use of short motel room stays, fake & new identities, and a rotation of vehicles used, hampered their progress in apprehending drug peddlers in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Notwithstanding, on October 22, 2013, police arrested six (6) men on drug-possession and other drug-related charges. These young men, ages 16 to 27, were charged under Section 4 of the Canadian Criminal Code.

Under the Canada Criminal Code Drug Possession can be defined as Drug Possession having possession of illegal drugs, either for private use, distribution, sale , etc. If convicted, in accordance with the classification of the drug charge, an individual can face between 3 and 7 years of imprisonment.

Recognition that the classification of Drug Possession charges in Canada carries different sentences increases the value of having a skillful and knowledgeable lawyer on the side of the accused. A skilled attorney can manoeuvre the system in order to attain lessened sentences, or to change the classification of a drug charge that an individual will be tried on. Lawyers with such a level of competence can be found at the Law Firm of Ted Yoannou.

Niagara Region Series of Robberies

It was only after a robbery in a Niagara Falls supermarket, that Canadian Law enforcement began to suspect that other robberies that had occurred in Grimsby, Hamilton and Burlington were committed by the same perpetrator. An investigation was triggered after police noticed that the description of the perpetrator match those given in other recent robberies.

On Monday August 12th, information about the robbery that occurred on Wednesday August 7th was released by Niagara Regional Police. The incident had occurred at around 7:15 pm at Food Basics on 3770 Montrose Rd in Niagara Falls. It was said that a man entered the supermarket and approached one of the cashiers, demanded all the cash and rushed out and left on foot westbound through a parking lot towards Montrose Rd.

The suspect was described as a white male, 5 feet 10 inches, medium build and had a scruffy beard. He was seen wearing a white hooded sweatshirt, with grey and brown stripes, a red baseball cap and blue jeans.

The description of the suspects at Falls Supermarket was very similar to the description given at all of the other locations; the suspect was said to have matched that of a similar incident the next day at Ruffin’s Pet Center at 63 main St. Grimsby. That incident occurred shortly before 4 pm that day when just a couple of hours earlier, a similarly described man had robbed the Fresh Co Grocery Store  located at 3505 upper middle Rd in the city if Burlington. In this instance police were able to obtain the suspect’s photo from the stores surveillance camera.
