Man with replica firearm arrested outside convenience store

Prince Edward OPP have made an arrest after a reported incident involving a firearm in Picton.

On June 2 shortly after 12 a.m., officers were called to convenience store on Paul Street where a man was reported to be outside with a gun. Officers located the male, arrested him and found a replica firearm which looked like a handgun.

A 38-year-old from Napanee, has been charged with: Possession of an imitation weapon for a dangerous purpose; Carrying a concealed weapon and Fail to comply with a probation order – three counts.

The accused was released from custody following a bail hearing and is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Picton on June 26.

This, police confirm, has no connection to a May 20 incident involving a firearm on Union Street where one person was transported to hospital with a serious, but non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

Officers believe this was not a random incident and that there was no risk to the general public. Prince Edward County OPP expects to release more information soon in regard to this matter.

Anyone with information, or who has potentially relevant doorbell or dashcam video, should call Prince Edward OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).
