Nelson police arrest man for obstruction

The Nelson Police Department arrested a man Wednesday after he fled from a by-law officer.

The Nelson Police Department arrested a man Wednesday after he fled from a by-law officer. Sgt. Corey Hoy said they found the man in a nearby apartment and discovered that he’d been using an alias for about six months and had outstanding warrants for his arrest.

He’d been released on bail in Nelson and Victoria with several conditions he was breaching. He was remanded in custody until today when he’ll appear in court on charges of obstruction and failing to comply with his release conditions.

Another man was arrested Wednesday for causing a disturbance and being drunk in public after police responded to a complaint that he was screaming at staff at a local business. He was also in breach of conditions from an incident a day before. He was remanded and pled guilty in court on Thursday.
