On January 12th 2020, a 17 year old male awoke to find that his mini bike had been stolen. The victim had an inkling of who may have stolen the bike and went to the suspect's residence accompanied by his girlfriend. When confronted, the four 17 year old suspects admitted to the theft and agreed to return the mini bike. During the return of the property, an argument ensued and a fight broke out. Police arrived to find the victim and his girlfriend with considerable injuries. Consequently, the four 17 year olds were arrested and charged with numerous offences including Break and Enter, Assault and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime. The accused young persons were processed and released with a February 10th 2020 court date where they will answer to the charges at the Walkerton Courthouse.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
