The North Bay Police have arrested and charged a man in relation to a home invasion that took place in the early morning hours at a Cedar Heights home April 27. He also faces weapons charges.
Police yesterday afternoon closed streets surrounding the Pizza Hut restaurant on Lakeshore Drive in a dramatic takedown, described as "chaotic" by an eyewitness.
North Bay police officers, the Emergency Response Team, and members of the OPP found a suspect inside a pickup truck in the parking lot.
When the suspect refused to leave the vehicle, it's side window was shot out by an OPP officer using an anti-riot gun. The man was not injured.
Two men were arrested at the scene.
Bradley Stevens, 22, of North Bay is charged with:
- Three counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm
- Three counts of knowledge of unauthorized possession of a firearm
- Firearm – use while committing an offence

The driver of the pickup was also arrested but police have not released further details, nor a reason why, and no information has been released on any charges.
The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) was notified and has invoked its mandate. As a result, the NBPS says it will not be able to provide any further information.
