"Urine trouble": accusation of peeing in public leads to more serious charges

...and be sure your sin will find you out. Numbers 32:23b

As reported by Mary Ellen MacIntyre of the Halifax Chronicle-Herald, October 26, 2015:

If there’s a lesson to learn, it’s this: peeing in public never ends well.

Three Quebec men now face numerous fraud-related charges all because one of them decided urinating in public was a wise choice.

Early Saturday morning, Halifax Regional Police received a call about an indecent act performed at the intersection of Robie Street and Quinpool Road. The caller said the man jumped back into the vehicle and was travelling outbound on Quinpool Road.

Officers found the vehicle at a Needs Convenience Store on Herring Cove Road.

All three men were subsequently arrested — two for breach of court orders and a third for obstructing a police officer. They were arrested and vehicle was seized.

Things get even more complicated when officers searched a Lier Ridge home the trio had rented two weeks before and found materials used to produce fraudulent credit cards.

The following charges have been laid against Kevin Clairsant-Letourneau, 20, of Montreal; Marvin Pierre Coriolan, 22, of Terrebonne and Karim Agba, 23, of Montreal: fraud over $5,000, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, possession of two stolen credit cards, instrument for use in forging a credit card and possession of property obtained by crime.

In addition, Clairsant-Letourneau faces a charge of obstructing a police officer and Coriolan is charged with three counts of breach of probation. Agba faces four counts of breach of probation.

They spent the rest of the weekend in jail and are scheduled to appear in Halifax provincial court today to answer to the charges.
