Warwick facing drug charges while on parole
Kelly Allen wants to know who is monitoring man responsible for her sister’s death
Kelly Allen is wondering how the man responsible for the death of her sister was able to allegedly be involved with drug trafficking when he is supposed to be on parole.
The Blenheim woman contacted The Chat ham Daily News after learning Bradley Warwick ,48, who pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of his common-law partner, Angela Harkley, is facing drug possession and trafficking charges.
A media release from the London Police Service states Warwick was among six people charged after search warrants were carried out at two homes and a business in London on April 13.
According to the media release, more than $200,000 worth of drugs, including cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA, hashish, marijuana, and marijuana shatter, were seized along with $35,000 in cash.
“If he’s out on parole, who’s supervising him that he’s able to do this?” Allen said.
She added the whole situation is “really disturbing.”
According to previously published reports, Warwick was granted“restrictive day passes” in late June 2013 and that was increased to day parole on Aug. 14, 2014.
Warwick received an 11-year and six-month sentence in connection to Harkley’s death. The woman was strangled and left for dead on the floor of the couple’ s home in Shrews bury on Sept. 15, 2006.
In the printed decision by the Parole Board of Canada in the summer of 2013, the hearing officers noted Warwick is a first-time federal offender with a history of cocaine use, a lengthy criminal record commencing in 1990, and having a high-risk factor for substance abuse.
Allen, who was present when Warwick was applying for parole, also recalled the panel spoke at length about his drug use.
She is upset the taxpayers covered the cost of Warwick to go into a drug rehabilitation program, which he had to complete as a condition to get parole, and few years later is now facing drug possession and trafficking charges.
Allen said Warwick is supposed to be living in a halfway house where he has to check-in.
“That’s my concern, how is he able to do this?” she said.
Allen said Warwick’s lengthy list of conditions include he not be around drugs or alcohol or people associated with drugs and alcohol. He is also prohibited from contacting her family, which she says he’s never tried to do, or visit Chatham-Kent.
