OPP search for wanted man north of Napanee

Napanee OPP say they're on the hunt for a man wanted on firearms charges.

Police say they executed a search warrant at a home in Tamworth Saturday, and the suspect fled the scene upon arrival.

Upon his flight, OPP called out the Emergency Response Team and a helicopter to look for him but the initial search turned up nothing.

Police say 61-year-old Charlie Way is described as 6 feet tall, weighing 310 pounds. He's got a large build, unkempt hair, and was wearing dark clothing.

Way is wanted on a warrant in the First Instance for:

  • Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm
  • Careless Storage of a Firearm
  • Possession of a Loaded Restricted Weapon
  • Possession of a Firearm Contrary to a Prohibition Order

Police are asking anyone who sees anyone or anything suspicious to call them, however they warn you should not apporach the man if you see him.
