Individual arrested and charged with drug possession and resisting arrest



On July 9, 2024, at approximately 11:20 a.m. police were on proactive general patrol in the area of Compton Street, north of Weller Avenue, in Kingston’s north end, when they observed two individuals appearing to exchange illicit drugs in the rear parking lot of an apartment building.


As the officer approached these individuals to speak with them, both immediately separated and fled in opposite directions. One of the individuals used a bicycle to flee from the scene. The officer followed this individual as they rode their bike through a hole in a fence to access the rear parking lot of an apartment building on Conacher Drive.


Police engaged in a foot pursuit with this individual, who had now chosen to evade apprehension by attempting to run back through a smaller hole in the same fence, which provided access to the same Compton Street apartment building rear parking lot.


Police quickly caught up with the accused who then resisted the officer’s attempts at placing him under arrest. After a brief struggle with the officer, this individual was successfully taken into custody at approximately 11:25 a.m.


A search incident to arrest revealed that the accused was in possession of a baggie that contained a quantity of suspected crystal methamphetamine.


The accused was subsequently transported to police headquarters where they were held to attend a bail hearing the following day.


A 21-year-old local individual was charged with unlawful possession of a Schedule 1 substance, resisting a peace officer, and three counts of breach of probation.
