More charges for Teneycke

Ronald Teneycke is now facing more charges stemming from incidents that took place, March 12 and 13 in Okanagan Falls.

According to crown counsel, there are nine, including breach of probation, flight from a police officer, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and willfully resisting or obstructing a police officer.

Teneycke, a convicted sex offender from Okanagan Falls, appeared by video, Monday in a Penticton courtroom.

The bail hearing was adjourned, however, when his lawyer Michael Welsh said there were additional disclosures and new charges and he needed to talk to his client.

Teneycke was arrested by Penticton RCMP officers in the early hours of March 13 on a rural road outside of Okanagan Falls.

He already made one appearance on the matter, last week. It was also adjourned when Welsh advised the court there was a third file in process, and he expected there to potentially be new charges.

Teneycke was recently released from jail after serving a six month sentence for drug possession.

His next court appearance is now slated for 11:30 a.m., Tuesday.
