Glace Bay man angry after false arrest
A Glace Bay man says he’s thinking about suing the Cape Breton Regional Police after counterfeiting charges against him were dismissed, with the Crown admitting he was not responsible for the crime.
25-year-old Craig Michael Doyle was charged with passing a counterfeit $100 Canadian bill and with breaching a court order.
He was arrested in June.
Doyle would spend three days on remand before being released on bail. He would then make seven provincial court appearances before the charges were finally dismissed.
In-store surveillance video would prove Doyle’s innocence, showing another man buying something with the counterfeit money.
Regional Police spokesperson Desiree Magnus says while she couldn’t comment on the specifics of the case, there is a process in place to find out what may have gone wrong.
