The Queens County woman who was wanted for arrest by police - and now is no longer at-large - has an unresolved Bridgewater threats charge dating back to last June, an allegation that originated during a confrontation about driving behaviour that led to arrests at gunpoint in Hebbville.

“Get your ass over here and I will shoot you with my shotie,” was apparently uttered June 11, 2019, which led to Teresa Lynn Stewart, 32, of Liverpool, being accused of one count of uttering threats.

The specific phrasing was mentioned to police by a witness and the text was contained in search warrant documents obtained by LighthouseNOW at the time.

A driver and passenger of a Honda Civic were approached after the vehicle was noticed operating at a high rate of speed in the Marie Avenue neighbourhood.

The vehicle left after the alleged gun threat but two female suspects were arrested at gunpoint following a police traffic stop a short distance away along the William Hebb Road in Hebbville.

On the same day, police received judicial authorizations and searched a Pine Street home in Bridgewater and a 2008 blue Honda Civic with alleged connections to the case. Law enforcement sought evidence of drug activity, not a firearm.

Police discovered five cell phones, quantities of an unidentified white powder, about 45 grams of dried cannabis, and opium tablets, but no shotgun.Court records indicated police found “numerous” Clonazepam pills - a form of tranquilizer - in one suspect’s bra. A container of white powder was found in the car, and in a handbag a container of marijuana bud was also found.

RCMP recently announced Stewart was wanted for arrest on a province-wide warrant for a fraud charge dating back to 2018 in Queens County “related to her employment at the time,” Cpl. Jennifer Clarke, a spokeswoman for the police agency, told LighthouseNOW.

The warrant for Stewart’s arrest came after police made several attempts to try and find her, which yielded no results. News of the arrest warrant came May 19. RCMP confirmed May 22 that she was no longer at-large but didn’t elaborate.
