Cpl. Brock Hedrick has provided Q101 with details of a recent arrest.
“On December 5, a Merritt RCMP member was on routine patrol and noted a male on foot trying to hide his face from police. The officer recognized the male as a subject who was on a court-ordered curfew. The subject was arrested, a search of the male located break-in tools and some drugs. During the encounter the accused is alleged to have threatened the officer,” wrote Hedrick.
The B.C Prosecution Service has approved charges against Cory Donald Williams for uttering threats against a police officer and possession of a controlled substance.
Williams will be appearing in Provincial Court later today.
