Surety withdraws leading to arrest

A 24 year old Brockville man was arrested yesterday morning after his surety attended to the court and withdrew his name.

On Monday, the surety for the man attended to Brockville Court and fulfilled his surety obligations by reporting the young man was not abiding by his conditions and asked that his name be removed as surety. As a result of this, a warrant was issued by the court for his arrest. Yesterday morning, the man was spotted in a business on King Street at 9:30 a.m. and placed under arrest for the warrant and held for bail.

The young man was originally before the courts on several domestic related charges stemming from a July 29th incident this year. He was released from custody in relation to those charges on a recognizance of bail with a surety.
