James Marvin Haslam, 20, remains in custody facing Criminal Code charges of possession of ammunition while he is prohibited from doing so, possession of property obtained by a crime, possession of break  in instruments, two counts of uttering threats to cause bodily harm, and assault with a weapon.  Haslam is scheduled to appear in court in mid-April.

The charges stem from an RCMP investigation which was initiated on March 12, 2016 when around five p.m. police received a report of a man allegedly waving a knife while threatening another man outside of a business in the 45000 block of Yale Road.  General Duty officers-who immediately arrived at the address- quickly relayed the suspect’s description to officers patrolling the area for the male.  Within minutes the suspect was located, and following a brief foot chase, taken into custody by police.

As always RCMP remind everyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious in nature to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
