Officers from the Orillia detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged a Kitchener individual with mischief, theft and drug charges following an incident at downtown business.

On June 21, just after 11:30 a.m., an individual entered a local business and attempted to leave after concealing items on his person. When spoken to by staff, the individual smashed two items on the ground and left the business. While outside the business the individual allegedly threw an object at the window of the business. Police quickly arrived and arrested the individual. 

As a result of the investigation, police have charged David Malott, 36, of Kitchener, with the following: mischief under $5,000 (two counts), theft under $5,000, and possession of a Schedule 1 substance for the purpose of trafficking (opioid other than heroin).

The accused was held for a bail hearing on June 22 at the Ontario Court of Justice in Barrie.
