Speeding charge

On April 1, 2014 at 6:28 p.m., the Guelph Police stopped a motor vehicle on Watson Parkway North after it was caught on radar at 105 km/hr in a 50 km/hr zone.

A 19-year-old Guelph male has been charged with excessive speed stunt driving under the Highway Traffic Act and the vehicle was seized for seven days.


Shoplifter arrested

On April 1, 2014 at 6:20 p.m., the Guelph Police went to a store within the Stone Road Mall to investigate an arrested shoplifter. It is alleged that the female took two boxes of perfume and then left the store without paying. A Loss Prevention Officer arrested her outside the store.

Further investigation determined that the female was in breach of a condition on her probation order.

A 54-year-old female of no fixed address has been charged with theft under $5,000 and breach probation. She has been held in custody pending a bail hearing on April 2, 2014.


Winter melt

The Guelph Police would like to remind everyone that the warm temperatures this week are expected to increase snow melt and runoff to the river system. Risks at this time include potential for ice jams as flows build in the river system and initiate ice movement over the next few days.

Banks adjacent to rivers and creeks are slippery and when combined with cold, fast-moving water pose a serious hazard. Parents are encouraged to keep their children and pets away from water courses and off any remaining frozen water bodies.
