A 29-year-old man was arrested Thursday in connection with a July 2 shooting in the Montreal-North area. The suspect was charged with possession and eviction of a firearm and possession of narcotics for trafficking, the Service de Police de la Ville de Montreal (SPVM) said.
Ken Wesley Cherie appeared in Montreal court on Thursday after being arrested at his foster home.
Police say SPVM agents searched the suspect’s home and his wife’s vehicle for a handgun and ammunition in an apartment that serves as a drug case in the Ville-Marie metropolitan area.
Police have arrested five more suspects in connection with the smuggling of crack cocaine.
On July 2, at 6:40 p.m., residents in Montreal-Nord heard gunshots near the intersection of Pier and Lobier streets. No one was injured. Ken Wesley Cherry has been under investigation ever since.
SPVM is asking the public to help find other people involved in this event. Anyone with information on the matter is invited to contact 911, or 514 393-1133 for information-crime Montreal. An online form is available at infocrimemontreal.ca.
