A man from St. Thomas is facing more than a dozen charges after he was arrested while allegedly carrying a replica firearm and numerous identity documents in a London, Ont., mall.
Just after 9 p.m. Saturday, police say officers responded to reports of a man believed to be carrying a gun in White Oaks Mall.
Police say a suspect was located and arrested, adding that a search during the arrest “yielded a replica gun and a number of identity documents not belonging to the suspect.”
No injuries were reported as a result of the incident, according to police.
A 43-year-old St. Thomas man has been charged with 15 offences, including 13 counts of possession of an identity document. His other charges are one count of carrying a concealed weapon or prohibited device or ammunition, and one count of failing to comply with an undertaking.
The accused is scheduled to make a first court appearance on Feb. 15.
