A Windsor police officer is charged after a two month-long internal investigation initiated culminated with Constable David Bshouty being arrested entering the United States from Windsor on Saturday, April 12th.

Police say that it all began on Monday, February 10th, when they received anonymous information regarding the illegal drug activity involving constable Bshouty. Police immediately acted on the information, and the Risk Management Unit commenced a criminal investigation.

On Friday, February 14th, Windsor Police say that they contacted US Homeland Security Authorities regarding information uncovered by their investigation and Homeland Security agreed to assist in the investigation.

The investigation continued and Windsor Police say that they used all legal and available means, including covert measures and assets to gather evidence to substantiate the allegation of illicit activities of this officer.

Constable Bshouty was arraigned today at the 36th District Court, in the United States. He is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance less than 25 grams.

Police say that at this time Constable Bshouty has not been released from custody, and that they are continuing with their criminal investigation and should additional charges be warranted, David Bshouty will be arrested and charged for those offences.

A parallel Police Services Act investigation is also ongoing.

Constable Bshouty has been suspended from duty.  He was hired as a cadet by the Windsor Police Service in February 2009. He currently holds the rank of Constable in Patrol Services where he has worked since his date of hire.
