Nelson man earns court date after causing a disturbance
A disturbance in a local bank has landed a Nelson man a court date late this month in provincial court.
Late Friday (April 13) morning Nelson Police officers were called to a local bank after a man became upset after being refused access to his account and caused a disturbance.
According to witnesses after being refused access to his account, he started screaming, throwing items around the bank and refused to leave.
However the 34-year-old suspect eventually left on his own after he realized police had been called.
After speaking to the witnesses, officers were able to identify then obtain an arrest warrant for Jeremiah Perdok and subsequently arrested him later that day.
Perdok was released on conditions not to attend the bank under any conditions and will appear in Nelson Provincial Court on April 25 charged with two counts of Causing a Disturbance.
A day later, Perdok breached his release condition by entering the same bank and was arrested before appearing before a Justice of the Peace.
He was subsequently released with similar but tighter conditions.

He is scheduled to appear before a Justice of the Peace on Monday, April 16 for a bail hearing.
