A 47-year-old male who has repeatedly frustrated Huron County OPP is currently wanted on two non-violent charges, and police say he could be in the St. Marys area.
“Based on information we have from our investigating officer, he may be with friends or associates in St. Marys,” explained Huron County OPP Community Services Officer, Constable Jamie Stanley.
Police issued a news release last week about arrest warrants for “Breach of Probation” and “Failure to Comply with a Recognizance” for David Stoll, whose last known address is in Londesborough, in the Municipality of Central Huron. In the news release, Stoll is described as “a white male, 5’ 6”, 150 lbs, thin build, brown eyes, and dark hair with a receding hairline.”
When asked why the wanted man was on probation, Constable Stanley said he could not reveal the previous charges. He stressed, however, that they were not violent in nature.
“In cases where there’s a risk of violence, we would definitely inform the public that the person is known to be armed and dangerous,” the officer told the Journal Argus. “And we did not do that in this case.”
The news release advised the public that, “if (Stoll is) observed, members of the public should contact police immediately by dialling 911. Do not attempt to apprehend the subject.”
“He’s a person that (Huron County OPP) feels has been evading us,” Constable Stanley commented. “Maybe if somebody reads about him in St. Marys, they’ll be reminded of something and make a call to police. Sometimes that’s all it takes.”
