‘UNACCEPTABLE’: Two York Regional Police officers charged after corruption probe

AURORA — Two York Regional Police officers have been charged in a 10-month corruption investigation that police say led to drug-trafficking charges.

Const. Richard Senior, 44, of Markham, faces 30 charges including attempted armed robbery of cocaine, theft of a police shotgun and trafficking cocaine and steroids.

Police allege Senior interfered in the prosecution of provincial offence notices and disclosing confidential police information.

Const. Timur Timerbulatov, 36, of Whitchurch-Stoufville, has been charged with breach of trust and unauthorized use of a police computer.

Timerbulatov has been suspended with pay and Senior was held in custody pending a court appearance Thursday and will be suspended with pay if he’s released.

Chief Eric Jolliffe says the investigation was difficult and also led to charges against five others.

“This is unacceptable criminal behaviour that will not be tolerated by members of our organization,” Jolliffe said in a statement.

“It is not a reflection on the dedicated, hard-working and extremely professional York regional police members working together each and every day to keep our community safe.”
