SAINT JOHN, N.B. – A police officer involved in the investigation into the death of Richard Oland testified today that he couldn’t agree with his chief that charges were coming soon in the high-profile murder probe.

Const. Stephen Davidson of the Saint John police was testifying during court hearings on whether censored portions of search warrants in the businessman’s death should be made public.

Davidson was asked whether he agreed with comments made last month by Saint John police Chief Bill Reid that an arrest was expected in “a short period of time.”

He said he wouldn’t use those words, adding that evidence continues to come in and be assessed.

Two media outlets have asked the provincial court to unseal the search warrants, portions of which were released Thursday.

Oland’s body was found in his Saint John office on July 7, 2011.

Nobody has been charged in the case.
