Update 2:49 p.m. Wednesday: Police release details on charges laid.
Only on Newswatch
CORNWALL – What started as a well being check at an east end duplex in Cornwall ended in the arrests of two people Tuesday afternoon.
The Cornwall Police Service was called to 202-204 Gardner Avenue, just north of the intersection of Easton Avenue, around 1:45 p.m.
CPS Sgt. Mark Anderson told Cornwall Newswatch the call started as a well being check but then took an unusual turn with a “number of arrests on unrelated matters.”
Anderson confirmed two people – one on an outstanding warrant – are under arrest and a third person is under investigation.
There were five police cruisers outside the two-storey building as the Cornwall Police Service mental health crisis team and other officers helped several people with their belongings from the building. They either drove away in their own vehicles or were shuttled away from the scene by cruiser (they were not under arrest).
Police also seized what appeared to be a partially stripped-down sport bike, which was loaded on a flatbed tow truck. Anderson said the bike was being seized for further investigation.
More details are likely to be released tomorrow.
