A North West Region OPP officer has been charged with uttering threats, police confirmed Tuesday.

The charge follows an investigation by the OPP’s Professional Standards Bureau. It follows an incident that took place in Terrace Bay on May 30.

Few details have been released about the alleged incident, but police say Const. Gregory Sutton, 40, was charged with a count of uttering threats. Police also seized six long guns and two handguns from the officer’s residence, which resulted in two counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm.

The Constable has served with the Schreiber detachment of the OPP for about eight years. Police say the constable was off duty at the time of the incident and that the seized firearms are not related to his duties as a police officer.

Sutton has been suspended from active duties.

Sutton will appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Thunder Bay on July 5.

If I'm reading the article correctly, it's a shame Const. Sutton decided to keep "unauthorized firearms" in his residence.

Does anyone else see the double standard in this article? The majority of the time on this site the name of the accused person isn't published but in this article we have a name, age and occupation. In most articles the posters are asking for the ID of the accused but it is never given. If think if tbnewswatch sees fit to publish this name they should be publishing all names.
