A Wyoming man facing over 40 charges is headed to trial later this month.
And Cody Price is out on bail until that trial begins.
Price turned himself in to Lambton OPP after a cruiser was “intentionally damaged” in St. Clair Township Dec. 30. At the time, police said on social media Price was allegedly a repeat offender who “steals trucks daily” and was suspected in the incident.
Price turned himself into police Jan. 8 and was charged with assaulting a peace officer with a weapon, flight from police, dangerous operation of a vehicle, break and enter, two counts of theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of theft over $5,000, two counts of possession of property obtained by crime and failing to comply with a release order.
At the time, Price was already facing 31 charges from an investigation linked to multiple thefts and break and enters throughout Lambton. Police recovered $500,000 in stolen goods.
He was arrested in a March 2022 incident.
OPP found a stolen vehicle and trailer on Courtright Line in St. Clair Township. Someone was seen near the pickup and tried to flee from the police. The officers arrested him after a struggle which caused broken bones in the man’s face.
The officers faced an investigation into their conduct during the arrest but the Special Investigations Unit cleared the officers saying they had used reasonable force to arrest Price.
After the officers were cleared, Price faced 31 charges including 13 counts of possession of stolen property and flight from a police officer.
Monday, Price appeared in court for a bail hearing and was granted bail more than four months after he turned himself in. Court documents show Price has to wear a GPS monitor while he’s out on bail and may not drive a car. He also can’t possess weapons, break in tools or drugs.
He faces trial on some of the charges May 30.
