TRUELOVE drove down McKenzie street stopping at the Heron Street intersection to pick up a random woman he did not know on the corner. It’s alleged he was driving erratically through the neighbourhood telling the random woman he picked up that he wanted crack. The woman became fearful of his behaviour and driving. TRUELOVE allegedly stopped briefly at MACS store on Simpson & McKenzie. The random woman exited the vehicle quickly and phoned police. Our hardworking TBPS officers arrived quickly to make the arrest.

He has a no contact order with the owner of the vehicle he allegedly stole or the random street woman he picked up. He’s ordered to attend a February court date.

Another failure by the Director of Communications at TBPS to notify public of the work that TBPS officers do.

Local taxpayer subsidized media is failing to report the incident to the public.


Update July 10,2019

Sources indicate that TRUELOVE is still going through the courts on these charges and is also being investigated for a break enter and theft now.
