Bear spray lands man in jail
A man whose mother told police he had drugs in his rented hotel room was sentenced recently to 14 days in jail.
Daniel John Miller appeared before Chief Judge John Douglas in provincial court in Charlottetown where he was sentenced for a probation breach.
On May 9, police responded to a complaint from Miller’s girlfriend and were on the lookout for him. He was staying in a hotel at the time and after seven days on the run Miller’s mother let the police into his room.
While there she told them he had drugs in the room.
The police found pills, marijuana, a collapsible baton, a replica firearm and an aerosol product like bear spray.
Among the conditions of his probation was that Miller was not to possess bear spray or a similar substance.
Miller dealt with any drug charges on a previous occasion.
Along with the jail time, Douglas ordered Miller to pay a $100 victim surcharge.
