He wasn’t where he was supposed to be.
Ontario Provincial Police say an officer patrolling in the area of Church Street and Burke Street in Penetanguishene early Monday morning recognized a man walking on the sidewalk who was bound by an order to reside in Ajax.
The man noticed he was being watched by the officer and made a run for it. The cop gave chase on foot and cornered the guy between two houses and a fence. Police say the man threw an object from his waistband and after a brief struggle was arrested.
Police say a quantity of methamphetamine and cocaine was found on the person during a search. While checking the area for the discarded item, officers found a loaded handgun.
A 43-year-old man is facing 17 drug and weapons-related charges.
