Fleet-footed suspect no match for long arm and legs of law

HUNTSVILLEA fleet-footed suspect was no match for the long arm – and legs – of the law Thursday.

Police say that on July 3, just after midnight, Huntsville OPP observed a male drinking alcohol on Main Street.

Officers stopped to speak to the male about the alcohol and he refused to tell the officer his name then ran from the police.

A short foot chase led to the arrest of Jonathan J. Smith, 22, of Huntsville.

He was later charged with having open liquor in other than a licensed premise under the Liquor Licence Act, Possession of a Schedule II drug believed to be marijuana under the Controlled Drug and Substances act and Resist Peace Officer, under the Criminal Code of Canada.

The accused was released to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Huntsville on August 6, 2014.
