Bear spray lands man in jail

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

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.
