(HURON EAST, ON) - Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers can thank a Seaforth resident for an arrest made early this morning.

Last night around 11:40 p.m. Huron OPP officers received a call about some suspicious activity taking place in the parking lot of the Seaforth arena located on Duke Street. Police learned the suspect was making trips back and forth to the vehicle with various items and the witness found this to be suspicious.

Officers arrived at the parking lot a short while later whereupon they located the pickup truck and a male suspect sleeping inside the cab.

Upon checking out the vehicle officers learned the vehicle had been reported stolen from Stratford on July 3, 2019. As a result of this, the suspect was placed under arrest and searched. Upon searching the accused officers found the male to be in possession of a stolen health card, break-in tools and a quantity of suspected cocaine.

Further investigation determined the suspect obstructed the officer by not properly identifying himself. Additionally, the suspect was found to be failing to comply with conditions of his probation sentence.

Richard HAYS, 34 years of age of no fixed address has been charged with the following offences:
Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5,000
Possession of a Schedule I Substance - Cocaine
Possession of Break-in Instruments

Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000

He has been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for July 22, 2019 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Goderich.
