A Welland home intruder was nabbed by the Niagara Police yesterday (November 8) but he didn’t go away easily.

The police were called to a home in the Southworth Street and Simpson Ave area at 8:45 pm where they ordered the man off the property. After he refused to leave, they tried to arrest him. However, he resisted arrest and in the process, he “intentionally kicked an officer.”

While the officer wasn’t harmed, the man continued to worsen his plight by uttering “numerous death threats” towards the same officer in the cruiser.

Drew Carrier-St Louis, 27, of Welland was charged with refusing to leave the property when ordered, resisting arresting, assaulting an officer and uttering threats.

He was held in custody for a bail hearing and will appear via video link to the Robert S.K. Welch Courthouse in St. Catharines today.

Anyone who may have information about this incident is asked to contact 905-688-4111, extension #1023300.
