Weapons seized after gun­fire in Gan

Kingston Whig-Standard - - NEWS -

Gananoque Po­lice Ser­vice ar­rested two peo­ple and seized a quan­tity of weapons Tues­day in con­nec­tion with “sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity” out­side a west-end res­i­dence that in­volved gun­fire.

Dur­ing a traf­fic stop, po­lice ar­rested a man and woman and seized “sev­eral weapons,” in­clud­ing bear spray, knives, am­mu­ni­tion, an axe, base­ball bats, a col­lapsi­ble ba­ton, sev­eral pel­let/BB guns, am­mu­ni­tion and a bul­let-proof vest, along with crystal metham­phetamine and mar­i­juana, po­lice re­ported Wed­nes­day.

Po­lice then got a search war­rant for the res­i­dence, “which was be­lieved to be tar­geted in an ear­lier in­ci­dent in­volv­ing gun­fire,” po­lice added.

“There was no­body in­jured in that par­tic­u­lar in­ci­dent,” said Sgt. Rich Swann, adding the in­ves­ti­ga­tion was still ac­tive.

Swann had no fur­ther de­tails about the gun­fire, in­clud­ing the time it hap­pened. Po­lice were hes­i­tant to pro­vide fur­ther de­tails be­cause of the sen­si­tiv­ity of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Howie Arnold Percy Mur­ray, 23, and El­iz­a­beth La­celle-Ren­shaw, 22, of Gananoque were held in cus­tody for show cause hear­ings, charged with pos­ses­sion of a weapon for dan­ger­ous pur­pose; unau­tho­rized pos­ses­sion of a weapon; knowl­edge of unau­tho­rized pos­ses­sion of a weapon; pos­ses­sion of a pro­hib­ited weapon con­trary to pro­hi­bi­tion or­der; pos­ses­sion of prop­erty ob­tained by crime; ob­struct­ing a peace of­fi­cer; pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana; and pos­ses­sion of crystal metham­phetamine.

This is the sec­ond in­ci­dent this month in­volv­ing bear spray in Gananoque. Joshua Kirk Ser­son, 26, of Gananoque faces mul­ti­ple charges in con­nec­tion with an Oct. 1 bear spray in­ci­dent po­lice called “un­pro­voked.”

“There doesn’t ap­pear to be any re­la­tion to this [lat­est] in­ci­dent,” Swann said.

Sus­pect iden­ti­fi­ca­tion

Kingston Po­lice are look­ing for the public’s as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing sus­pects wanted in re­la­tion to two sep­a­rate thefts on the same day last month.

Pho­tos of all the sus­pects were re­leased by Kingston Po­lice on Wed­nes­day.

The first in­ci­dent oc­curred on Thurs­day, Sept. 14, around 1:30 a.m., when a sin­gle sus­pect broke into a busi­ness on Canatara Court. The man stole a small quan­tity of cash.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Det. Chad Parslow at 613549-4660, ext. 6245, or via email at cparslow@kingston­po­lice.ca.

Then around 8:30 p.m. that evening, po­lice said that two male sus­pects went into a store in the RioCan Cen­tre at 616 Gar­diners Rd. and stole two women’s Canada Goose jack­ets.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the sec­ond in­ci­dent is asked to con­tact Const. Rob Lalonde at 613-549-4660, ext. 6181, or via email at rlalonde@ kingston­po­lice.ca.

For both in­ci­dents, tips can be pro­vided anony­mously by call­ing the po­lice’s gen­eral num­ber 613-5494660, ext. 0, and ask­ing to be anony­mous or by call­ing Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
