Heavy OPP presence to execute search warrant, 'due to nature of investigation'

Posted January 15, 2014

OPP provided "no additional details at this time," in relation to yesterday morning's search warrant execution in Alliston that ended with one arrest and nearly a dozen various charges, against a 28-year-old male who, at this update, was still in custody pending a bail hearing today in Barrie.

OPP Sgt. Peter Leon, Central Region Media Relations Coordinator, said this morning via email the sex related charge "is not a child." but " can't speak to that specifically." The suspect's name was not released to protect the victim's identity. The suspect also faces drugs and weapons charges.

Asked about the number of different OPP units that were used to execute the warrant - Nottawasaga OPP, Central Region Tactics and Rescue Unit (TRU), Central Region Emergency Response Team (ERT), Community Drug Action Team (CDAT), Nottawasaga OPP Street Crime Unit, the Provincial Weapons Enforcement Unit (PWEU), Central Region Canine Unit  and the Nottawasaga OPP Crime Unit - Sgt. Leon explained, "resources included many due to the nature of the investigation. Also when weapons are involved we utilize specialized resources such as the TRU team - public and police safety is a priority."
