Nelson police warn of phony kinesiologist

Disturbance complaints, breaching of court ordered conditions and suspicious incidents round out this week of police reports in Nelson

Police are investigating a suspicious incident involving a 75-year-old male who allegedly identified himself to three female employees at a local business as a practitioner in applied kinesiology.

The suspect is known to police and is believed to have only recently appeared in the Nelson area.

Police say the man is not a trained practitioner despite occasionally producing official looking documents. They encourage the public to stay away from him.

Disturbance reveals outstanding warrant

Nelson police responded to the 500 block of Ward Street at about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday for a disturbance complaint.

Officers located a 33-year-old man when they arrived on scene, who was known to them as being at large on a province wide warrant for failing to comply with conditions of a court order. He was subsequently arrested and held in custody.

He was scheduled to appear in Nelson provincial court later that week.

Traffic stop reveals drugs

Early Thursday Nelson police pulled over a driver along Nelson Avenue between Behnsen and Cottonwood streets.

While dealing with the woman behind the wheel, the officer recognized the man in the front passenger seat and knew him to be bound by court conditions that included a curfew and to stay away from booze.

The 45-year-old male Nelson man was arrested and taken to jail.

Various drugs were also recovered from the vehicle. The man has been charged with two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking and four counts of possession of a controlled substance.
