Press Release

31 May 2012

8 May 12, at 6:00 pm police arrested a 57 year old Saugeen Reserve man for public intoxication at the Saugeen Hospital.

9 May 12, at 10:29 pm police responded to a bear complaint on Oak St in Southampton. A large bear and 2 cubs were dragging some garbage. The Bear Wise program from the MNR is now basically just a reporting number. MNR will not be trapping and relocating bears anymore. With extreme circumstances they may attend to drug and take away a bear. This is another responsibility of the Provincial Government that has been downloaded to the Municipality. If people are having trouble with bears they will call someone to protect them that would be the police by default. We do not have training or equipment to deal with bears, we don’t have traps, tranquilizer guns and doing so certainly is not a core function of policing.

11 May 12, at 2:38 am police arrested a 23 year old Port Elgin male for public intoxication. The male was staggering up Goderich St and tripped on the curb. He was transported home to his mother and issued a ticket.

13 May 12, at 3:50 am police stopped a vehicle on Waterloo St for a Highway Traffic Act offence. After noting an odour of alcohol in the vehicle the driver was required to provide a roadside breath test and registered a warn.

A total of 6 grams or marihuana was also located in the vehicle and the driver was charged with possession of marihuana.      


14 May 12, police investigated a matter where an IPOD was purchased on Kijiji. After paying $100 for the IPOD and meeting in a parking lot to make the transaction the purchaser became suspicious when they observed an engraved message indicating who the IPOD belonged to and “please don’t steal”. The rightful owner was found and the IPOD returned to them. The youth selling the IPOD has been identified and police are investigating. The message “If it seems too good to be true it usually is” is something you should ask yourself prior to buying and being in possession of stolen property.
