Shelburne RCMP has arrested two men after they attempted to steal vehicles in Ohio.
On May 18, 2023, at approximately 2:20 p.m., an off-duty Shelburne RCMP officer observed two men attempting to gain access to a truck that was parked at a local business on Ohio Rd. in Ohio. The off-duty officer remained at the scene and contacted the Shelburne Detachment to request that on duty members attend.
While additional members were responding, the two men fled into the woods. RCMP Police Dog Services were requested to assist in locating the men. After several minutes, a second attempted vehicle theft from a carpool lot and multiple sightings of the men by witnesses, the men were located by officers and safely arrested. RCMP officers determined that one of the men was wanted in an Armed Robbery that occurred in the Lockeport area in early February 2023.
Cameron Dallas James Nickerson, 24, of Shelburne has been charged with Mischief and Breach of Probation for the incident on May 18.
Nickerson is also charged with Robbery with a Firearm, Assault with a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose, Pointing a Firearm, Wearing a Mask During the Commission of an Offence, Theft of a Motor Vehicle, Theft under $5,000 and Breach of Probation, for the Robbery in February 2023.
Nickerson has been remanded into custody and will appear in Shelburne Provincial Court on June 7, 2023 at 9:30 a.m.
The second man, who is 32 and from Shelburne, was released on conditions and will appear in court at a later date. He will be facing a charge of Mischief.
The Shelburne RCMP would like to thank the members of the public who assisted our officers by reporting sightings of the two men, which helped our officers to safely take them into custody.
