On December 9, 2017 Midland police investigated a nuisance complaint where the suspects claimed their landlord piled snow in front of their vehicle and they could not leave the parking lot where they reside. Through the course of the investigation it was learned that this information was false and both suspects lied to police. They also caused mischief to the victim’s snow blower by packing it with snow and burying it.  Both suspects were charged with Mischief and Public Mischief.  Charges of Mischief and Public Mischief have been laid against a 44-year-old and 35-year-old, both of Midland. The pair were released on an Appearance notice to attend the Midland Court of Justice on February 1, 2018 at 930am.
