On March 25th and 26th officers from West Grey were scheduled to attend a trial for a 36 year old with an address in Paisley who was accused of crimes committed in West Grey.

The accused failed to attend the trial and a warrant for his arrest was issued.  The male party turned himself in at the court in Walkerton on March 27, 2024 and he was charged with Failing to attend court and held for a bail hearing. He was subsequently released and will return to court to answer to the original charges and the new charge in April.

 

On March 31st just before midnight West Grey officers on patrol initiated a traffic stop on Highway 6 north of Durham.  The driver refused to engage with officers or exit his vehicle. Once police were able to access the driver he showed clear signs of impairment.  He refused the roadside demand and was transported to the West Grey Police Station where he refused the breath demand.  The 47 year old from Bruce County was charged accordingly under the Criminal Code.  The vehicle he was driving was towed from the scene and impounded.  His license was already suspended and was additionally suspended as is the case when one refuses a demand.  The accused faces a number of charges under the Highway Traffic Act and the Cannabis Control Act.  He will appear in court in April to answer to all charges.

 

West Grey officers issued forty one charges under the Highway Traffic Act during the Easter weekend traffic safety campaign.  There were no reported collisions on our roadways in the past week and speed enforcement efforts will continue.
