A 28-year-old man from the Alberta is facing weapons and drugs charges after Kingston Police acted on officer safety information provided by another police service.
During the morning of December 8, 2016, uniform patrol officers had reason to be in the parking lot of a city-central motel where they ran the Alberta licence plate of a Dodge Charger. CPIC information came back advising there was a potential officer safety issue with the registered owner of the vehicle, specifically in relation to weapons and posts made on social media.

Pair Charged with Dangerous Driving and Drugs after Fleeing from Police
Two local men are facing a slew of charges after they fled from Kingston Police and later were involved in two separate collisions within the city.
Beginning at approximately 10:00 p.m. on December 8, 2016, a uniform patrol road sergeant observed a grey Hyundai Santa Fe on Lyons Street. The vehicle was stopped but as the officer approached the SUV drove off. The officer continued to follow the vehicle at low speeds with his emergency lights activated, which pulled over multiple times but refused to stop and allow the officer to approach. Two males could be seen in the vehicle.
In the 100-block of Kingscourt Avenue the 44-year-old passenger exited the SUV and attempted to flee on foot. The road sergeant was able to capture the man who began resisting arrest. Eventually the officer was able to gain control and handcuff the man.
During this time other responding officers located the SUV in the area of Concession Street and Alfred Street. It was observed driving onto the lawn of the Memorial Centre, through the children’s playground and onto York Street. The driver continued to fail to stop for police and after barreling through a partially blocked intersection at Nelson Street and Concession Street the pursuit was terminated due to safety concerns.
A short time later the same SUV and driver rear-ended a Mazda that was travelling west on John Counter Boulevard. The 27-year-old suspect driver failed to stop after the collision. The female driver of the Mazda received no injuries. The suspect continued westbound and then later lost control of the SUV at the intersection of Princess Street and Sydenham Road, sliding into and colliding with an embankment.
The suspect attempted to flee on foot but a responding officer located him on Princess Street just north of John Counter Boulevard. The man could be seen discarding his clothing and an item as he ran. Refusing to obey commands to stop, a Taser was deployed by the officer and the man fell to the ground. He continued to resist arrest but was eventually brought under control and handcuffed. A total of $860 in cash was retrieved that the suspect had discarded while running.
During the search of the passenger Percocet pills and a fold of approximately $2,000 in Canadian currency taped in a plastic bag were found. Officers returned to the scene of the start point of the vehicle stop on Lyons Street and located a small plastic bag containing a substance believed to be cocaine.
The driver appeared to be heavily under the influence of drugs, his behaviour was erratic, he refused to obey commands at the scene and in the booking area, and was combative with officers. Both men were lodged in cells to attend a bail hearing the following day.
Both accused are facing charges of possession of proceeds of crime, resisting arrest, and two counts each of possession of controlled substances. The driver faces additional charges of impaired driving by drug, dangerous driving, fail to stop for police and two counts of failing to stop at a collision.
