Press Release

01 March 2010

23 February 2010, at 8:20 pm police were at Market and Goderich St in Port Elgin investigating an accident when another vehicle stopped near the accident waiting to turn. Police tried to direct the driver to go around the accident but the driver did not respond. The officer spoke to the driver and observed the driver had been drinking. The 72 year old Port Elgin male failed the roadside breath test and subsequently failed the breath test at the police office and was charged with impaired driving.

25 February 2010, at 1:24 pm police responded to a report of a break in at a trailer in the Port Elgin trailer park. No entry was gained but a window was broken. Police located another break and enter at another trailer. Police are investigating.

26 February 2010, at 8:04 am police received a report of someone canvassing for money over the phone on behalf of police. The organization was called Cops for Kids Safety. While this is a legitimate organization out west it appears that someone is trying to solicit funds using their name. The Saugeen Shores Police Service does not have anyone raising money through Cops for Kids Safety. If contacted simply ask for the police service affiliation and a call back number then provide that information to this police service for follow-up.

28 February 2010, at 12:48 am police responded to the Queens Bar and Grill to a report of a person breaching their probation conditions. Police located a 20 year old Saugeen First Nation male and arrested him for breaching conditions of probation. The male later caused damage in the cell and was also charged with mischief.
