OPP crime report: Shoplifting, speeding and impaired driving

Investigation solved other shoplifting incidents

In January 2018, Hawkesbury OPP Constable Dominique Sauve investigated a shoplifting incident that occurred at the LCBO store on Main Street in Hawkesbury.

The investigation resulted in identifying the suspects and solving several other shoplift incidents which had occurred since November 2017 at the LCBO.

A 39-year-old Hawkesbury woman has been charged under the Criminal Code of Canada with five (5) counts of Theft Under $5000- Shoplifting. Likewise, a 42-year-old man has been charged with four counts of the same crime.

They were both released and were scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice located in L’Orignal on March 7, 2018.

Excessive speed resulted in several charges

In January 2018, members of the Hawkesbury detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a report of a traffic complaint of a motor vehicle travelling at an excessively high rate of speed.

The vehicle, a black 2017 Hyundai Accent, was located and intercepted by Constable Dominique Sauve on Highway 417 in the Township of East Hawkesbury.

Interaction with the male driver gave the officer reason to believe that the driver had operated his motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. The driver was issued a three-day suspension for having a Blood Alcohol Concentration between 0.05 and 0.08.

Investigation revealed that he was driving without a valid driver’s licence and was in violation of his conditions.

A 44-year-old Laval, Quebec man was charged under the Criminal Code of Canada with the following section:

– Breach of Recognizance (2 counts)

He was also charged under the Highway Traffic Act with the following sections:

– Drive motor vehicle – no licence

– Race a motor vehicle – Excessive Speed

The vehicle was seized and the driver’s licence was immediately suspended for seven days.

He was released and scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in L’Orignal.

He was also to appear at the Ontario Provincial Offences Court in L’Orignal on March 7, 2018 for his driving offences.

 

Impaired by Alcohol

On Saturday March 3, 2018, at 3:15 am, Hawkesbury OPP Constable Patrick Spooner intercepted a black 2012 Dodge Ram on Sinclair Street in the Town of Hawkesbury.

Interaction with the female driver gave the officer reason to believe that she had operated her motor vehicle with blood alcohol content over 80 mgs.

Consequently, the driver, a 31-year-old Hawkesbury woman, was arrested and charged under the Criminal Code of Canada with the following section:

– Driving with More than 80 mgs. of Alcohol in Blood

The vehicle was seized for seven days and the driver’s licence was immediately suspended for 90 days.

She was later released and scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice located in L’Orignal on March 21, 2018

 

Impaired by Alcohol

On Saturday morning March 3, 2018, just prior to 6 a.m., Hawkesbury OPP Constable Matthew Beausoleil intercepted a white 2016 Kia Sorento on John Street in Hawkesbury.

The vehicle was stopped for travelling at an excessively high rate of speed on the Long Sault Bridge.

Interaction with the male driver gave the officer reason to believe that he had driven his motor vehicle with his abilities impaired by alcohol.

A 30-year-old Cornwall man was arrested and charged under the Criminal Code of Canada with the following sections:

– Driving While Ability Impaired- motor vehicle (Alcohol)

– Driving with More than 80 mgs. of Alcohol in Blood

He was also charged under the Highway Traffic Act with the following sections:

– Speeding 50+ Km/h over posted limit

– Novice driver – B.A.C. above zero

The traffic stop resulted in locating open alcohol inside the vehicle.

The driver was charged under the Liquor Licence Act with the following section:

– Driving motor vehicle with liquor readily available

The vehicle was seized for 7 days and the driver’s licence was immediately suspended for 90 days.

He was later released and scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice located in L’Orignal on March 21, 2018
