Tuesday, February 24, 2015 @ 9:18 AM

Victoria, B.C.- Four RCMP officers from two different detachments on Vancouver Island   have been charged in connection with two separate incidents investigated by the Independent Investigations Office.

In Nanaimo,  a charge of Assault causing bodily harm  has been approved against a member of the Nanaimo detachment of the R.C.M.P. in relation to an incident alleged to have occurred in the detachment cells in Nanaimo on June 15, 2014.

Charged  is Cst. Tim Bedard who is scheduled to make his first  court appearance  March 17, 2015 in Nanaimo.

The second incident involves three members of the Oceanside detachment of the RCMP and  involves  an incident that is  alleged to have  occurred in the detachment cells in Parksville  in June of 2013. The  charge  alleges excessive force was used  when a person  was  pepper sprayed.  While the complainant  did suffer injuries,  the Criminal Justice Branch  has concluded  there is not  enough evidence  to  convict anyone  on charges related to the  injuries. Charged with  Assault with a Weapon are; Cst. Scott Kennedy Jones, Cpl. Michelle Rene Lebrun and Cst. Mick Donald White . They are  scheduled to appear in court in Nanaimo on March 17th.
