Weapons, drug charges

The Intelligencer (Belleville) - - NEWS -

Two area men are fac­ing weapons charges fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent in the city’s east end on Tues­day. At 1:39 p.m. an of­fi­cer on pa­trol ob­served a car speed­ing through the park­ing lot on the east side of the Bayview Mall. Dur­ing the sub­se­quent traf­fic stop, the driver pro­vided a false name. He was ar­rested for ob­struct­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer. The of­fi­cer ob­served an eight-inch knife be­side the driver’s seat, as well as a can­is­ter of “bear mace.” Once the man’s true iden­tity was de­ter­mined, a check re­vealed he was pro­hib­ited from pos­sess­ing any weapons. As a re­sult, 32-year-old Aaron Hills of Tren­ton was charged with ob­struct­ing po­lice, weapons dan­ger­ous, pos­ses­sion of a pro­hib­ited weapon and pos­sess a weapon while pro­hib­ited. He has an Oc­to­ber court date. A pas­sen­ger in the ve­hi­cle was also in pos­ses­sion of “bear mace.” He was ar­rested and a search re­vealed a quan­tity of metham­phetamine (crys­tal meth) in his sock. Matthew Brushey, 29, of Belleville was charged with weapons dan­ger­ous, pos­ses­sion of a pro­hib­ited weapon and pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance. He is sched­uled to ap­pear in court next month.
