West Grey Police Service (WGPS) responded to 51 calls for service between December 10 and 16, 2017.
In a media release, WGPS is reminding residents of West Grey to drive according to their abilities and to road conditions. In a recent five day period, 11 motor vehicle collisions were reported resulting in multiple charges. Drivers are also reminded that it is their duty to report to the police, as soon as is practicable, any collision that appears to have $2,000 or more in total damage.
On December 14, police received a call reporting a break and enter into an apartment maintenance office. Upon police investigation, a Durham man was identified as the suspect and was subsequently charged with one count of Breaking and Entering with intent to commit an indictable offence. The male was released by way of promise to appear and is set to answer to the charge at the Walkerton Courthouse.
During this holiday season, police across the province have set out to reduce impaired driving everywhere in Ontario. The West Grey Police Service is committed to conducting RIDE Programs every day when possible to insure that our community members get home safely. If you decide that you are going to drink, please make sure to have a designated driver.
The West Grey Police Service wishes you a safe and happy holidays.
