Police make arrests for weekend mischief
Two men will appear in Sydney Provincial Court today for separate incidents of mischief over the weekend.
At approximately 10:30 PM May 5th, Cape Breton Regional Police responded to reports of a rock thrown through a window at the Capri Club; while there, police received a complaint of a rock thrown through a second business on Charlotte Street. With witness information, officers patrolled the Charlotte Street area for a potential suspect and any other damage.
At approximately midnight, police were called to a residence on Dixon Avenue where a man was caught attempting to enter a vehicle. Officers were able to identify the suspect and confirm that he matched the description of the suspect involved in the earlier incidents; he was arrested, and officers located a large amount of loose change in his possession.
The 40-year-old Sydney man was held in custody overnight; he is charged with Trespassing at Night, Mischief (x3) and eight Breaches of pervious Court-ordered conditions.
Earlier on May 5th, just after midnight, Cape Breton Regional Police were called to the Holiday Inn in Sydney where a man was believed to be seen firing shots into the water.
Officers located a male at the bottom of the parking lot and immediately ordered him to surrender to police, to which he cooperated; showing signs of intoxication, officers arrested the man for public intoxication and seized a pellet gun from his possession.
After further investigation, including witness information, the 28-year-old with no fixed address will face charges of Carrying a Concealed Weapon and Assault with a Weapon; he was held in police custody for his Court appearance.
