Man from Kearns-McGarry Township, Ontario facing kidnapping and firearm charges


A 38-year-old man is facing kidnapping and firearm charges after two men were forcibly removed from a Delhi residence last week.

The two men, ages 29 and 45, both of Tillsonburg, were taken from Delhi to a residence in the Courtland area on Friday.

After arriving at the location, one of the men became involved in a physical altercation that resulted in the suspect fleeing from the area in a vehicle.

Norfolk OPP were contacted by the Brantford Police Services around 1:18 a.m. Saturday after one of the men arrived at a local hospital with injuries.

As a result, police have charged Richard James Hutchison, 38,  of Kearns-McGarry Township with a variety of offences.

He has been charged with kidnapping while using a firearm, discharging a firearm into or at a place in a reckless manner, possession of a loaded prohibited or restricted weapon,  and possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine.

The accused was held in custody for a bail hearing on Tuesday at the Simcoe courthouse.
