MORRISBURG — All charges against a Winchester senior citizen were stayed — withdrawn — in Morrisburg court last week, the Ottawa Sun reports.
James ‘Jimmy’ Wise had been accused of possessing and trafficking in property obtained by crime — along with break and enter, assault, obstructing a peace officer and mischief — after the SD&G OPP executed a search warrant at his then-Caleb St. address on Nov. 11, 2016.
Wise currently resides at Dundas Manor.
Police said the warrant against Wise, then 73, resulted from a tip about alleged stolen property generated during an ongoing homicide investigation into the demise of Raymond Arnold Collison. Almost five years after his disappearance, the remains of the 58-year-old Chesterville man turned up in a ditch outside Morewood, in 2014.
No one has been charged in Collison’s death.
