A teenager out on probation initially got away by giving a fake name to police, but when they figured out who he really was, he earned himself a new charge.
Officers stopped and checked the 17-year-old last Tuesday, but when they ran the boy’s alias, nothing turned up.
Followup investigation, however, revealed his true identity, and the fact that he was bound by a probation order that he had been breaching at the time of his check.
Police say the boy surrendered to police on Sunday evening and was later released. He’s to appear in Brandon court on July 29 to face a charge of public mischief and breach of probation.
