A local man will be spending the next few months in jail after he pled guilty to a laundry list of offences last week.
Appearing virtually from custody, Nathan Werney, 32, pleaded guilty to more than a dozen charges in a Bracebridge court. Werney’s charges ranged from breach of probation, to theft and mischief.
Court heard that in January 2020, first responders were called to an overdose in Bracebridge. Werney was with the overdose victim and accompanied them to the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital. While there, Werney stole drugs from the crash cart which the court heard can be extremely dangerous if used improperly.
Court heard that over the next 17 months Werney was arrested a number of times including multiple times for stealing from parked cars in both Bracebridge and Gravenhurst. Items stolen included bank cards, tools and even a firefighter’s uniform from a parked car in Gravenhurst.
He also pleaded guilty to forging a doctor’s note for oxycontin and prying into a mailbox in an apartment complex in Gravenhurst.In the end, Werney was 295 days in jail total, less time served.
