Dangerous driving charges for Northside man
A 31-year-old North Sydney man facing charges after an incident that ended on High Street in North Sydney Thursday will return to in court Monday.
Jason Kenneth Wayne Timbury made his first appearance on the charges in Sydney provincial court Friday and was remanded into custody. He is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, impaired driving, failure to remain at the scene of an accident, flight from a police officer, taking a motor vehicle without consent, operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s licence, mischief and breaches of previous court-ordered conditions.
He had been remanded to the Cape Breton Correctional Centre after Cape Breton Regional Police arrested him on High Street at approximately 9:30 a.m. Thursday.
Police had originally responded to reports that a Mazda vehicle was stolen from a North Sydney residence. When officers located the vehicle, the driver would not stop for police. Officers continued to follow the vehicle at a safe speed and distance, eventually to the area of King and High streets where the driver struck the rear of a police vehicle as well as a vehicle parked on the street. All three vehicles were damaged, but no one was injured.
Members of the traffic safety and forensic identification unit also responded to the scene.
