Source: Brandon Police Service Media Release

On July 29, 2021, police responded to a report of a male who was brandishing both a handgun and a machete in the 600 block of Dennis Street, at approximately 9:30 pm.  There were several other individuals in the area at the time, but they had all fled prior to police arrival.  There were no reported injuries.

Investigation led police to a residential address where a male matching security footage images of the suspect was located and arrested.  He provided police with a false name.

Further investigation revealed his identity, and the fact that the 31-year-old male was to abide by conditions not to possess any weapon and to abstain from alcohol consumption.

He was lodged at Brandon Police Service and will appear in court today on charges of Possession of a Weapon, Public Mischief, Fail to Comply with Release Order X2, and Fail to Comply with Probation.
