Darbara Mann was arrested in Saskatchewan for allegedly launching fireworks at Peel police stations.

The man subject to a Canada-wide arrest warrant for allegedly shooting fireworks at police stations in Brampton and Mississauga was arrested in Saskatchewan hours after the warrant went out.

Peel Regional Police claim the suspect, Darbara Mann, a 50-year-old man of no fixed address, launched fireworks at several police stations on Mar. 12.

Police say the following stations were targeted;

  • Dixie Rd. and Eglinton Avenue in Mississauga,
  • Erin Mills Pkwy. and Dundas St. in Mississauga, and
  • Hurontario St. and County Court Blvd. in Brampton

Investigators said no one was hurt and no buildings were damaged. A Peel police representative said the fireworks did not actually make contact with the stations.

Additionally, police claim Mann called the three stations the next day to make a series of threats.

Police soon announced they were looking for Mann on charges of mischief and fleeing police. A Canada-wide warrant was announced later in the week on Mar. 17.

Hours after the warrant went out Peel police announced the RCMP had picked up Mann in Saskatchewan. Police did not specify where Mann was found in the prairie province, nor how he got there.

Peel police are currently coordinating with the RCMP to return Mann to Ontario to stand trial.

Anyone with further information can call police at 905-453–2121, ext. 1233 or Peel Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
