Liverpool Paramedic Facing More Charges

A Liverpool paramedic is facing additional charges for allegedly stealing and misusing drugs from an EHS station. RCMP have laid five new charges against 47-year-old Kenneth Cosh including administering a noxious substance, assault with a weapon, theft under $5,000, fraud and criminal negligence. Meanwhile, a charge of forgery will be withdrawn. Cosh is facing 10 charges in total. Police say the additional charges are a result of the ongoing investigation. Officials with EHS alerted police of allegations of thefts and misuse of drugs by the man earlier this year. RCMP searched a home in February on Wolfe Street and seized syringes and medical containers. Cosh will appear in Liverpool Provincial Court July 9.
