The Caledon Community Street Crime Unit (CSCU) and uniformed members of the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), with the assistance of the Dufferin CSCU, executed a public safety warrant at a local property. It led to an arrest, weapons and ammunition seizures, and multiple criminal charges.
In November 2021, uniformed officers began an investigation for the offence of Mischief and requested the Caledon CSCU to assist. It led to the belief that the accused was in possession of firearms and ammunition, posing a threat to public safety. On March 2, 2022, the warrant was executed. A number of firearms, prohibited magazines, and a quantity of ammunition were seized.
As a result, John NIELSON, 64, of Caledon, was charged with:
• Criminal Harassment
• Careless storage of firearm, weapon, prohibited device or ammunition (9 counts)
• Public mischief
• Possession of a prohibited device or ammunition (6 counts)
• Unauthorized possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm
The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on May 19, 2022, to answer to the charges.
