A 34-year-old recent arrival to Nelson who twice caused a ruckus inside a local bank will appear in court on April 25.

Police say they received a call Friday around 11 a.m. about a disturbance at the bank.

According to witnesses, when the man was refused access to his account, he started screaming, throwing items, and refused to leave.

However, he eventually did go on his own once he realize police were on the way.

Police identified him, obtained a warrant, and arrested him later that day.

He was charged with two counts of causing a disturbance and released on conditions to stay away from the bank.

However, the next day he breached his release condition by showing up at the bank again. He was re-arrested and taken before a Justice of the Peace, and released with similar but tighter conditions.

The man was charged with fail to comply with bail conditions and another count of causing a disturbance.

Charges expected in drug deal

A 46-year-old Nelson man was arrested Sunday after he was seen making drug deals at the intersection of Ward and Baker.

Police found packaged marijuana on him.

The man was held in custody and charged with drug possession for the purpose of trafficking and uttering threats.

He’s due before a Justice of the Peace today for a bail hearing.
