Mississauga Man Charged After Allegedly Accusing Police Officers of Theft
A Mississauga man is facing charges in connection with an incident in which he allegedly falsely claimed that uniformed police officers stole $7,000 in cash from his vehicle.
Toronto police report that on Oct. 12, 37-year-old Mark Dean Burrell went to the force's 33 Division to report the theft.
Police say the accused claimed he was stopped for driving with an expired licence plate sticker by uniformed police officers driving a marked police car with flashing lights. He reportedly went on to tell police that he was ordered to exit the vehicle so officers could search it.
He claimed that, when he returned, the money was missing.
Police say evidence suggests the traffic stop in question never occurred and there is no indication that the accused had any contact with police officers.
On Sunday, Oct. 29, Burrell was charged with public mischief.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, Dec. 8.
