Eight-year veteran with the Peel Regional Police charged with several criminal offences
A Peel Regional Police (PRP) officer has been charged with several criminal offences.
Constable Michael Konwerski, an eight-year veteran with the PRP, has been charged with three counts of Unauthorized Possession of a Prohibited Device, three counts of Careless Storage of a Prohibited Device and one count of Careless Storage of Ammunition.
The charges come after a 14-month investigation into Konwerski by PRP in conjunction with the Peel Regional Police Professional Standards Bureau (PRPPSB).
The investigation began in September of 2019, when the PRPPSB received an internal complaint alleging that after his shift, Konwerski left three prohibited firearm magazines loaded with ammunition in the trunk of the police cruiser that he was operating.
Konwerski is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on January 4, 2021.
