WINCHESTER – An 18-year-old South Dundas woman faces charges in connection with stealing food from a Winchester home and then threatening a police officer as she was arrested.

SD&G OPP officers responded on the morning of Nov. 7 to the reported break-in and theft at the Gladstone Street residence.

Police say the teen threatened an officer upon her arrest.

She’s charged with: Break and Enter; Theft Under $5,000; and Utter Threats. She’s also charged with four counts of Fail to Comply with Sentence — a sentence imposed in relation to previous incidents occurring when she was under the age of 18, according to SD&G OPP Constable Joel Doiron. Because of that wrinkle, the woman’s name wasn’t released on the latest charges, as per the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The accused was held in custody pending an appearance (bail) at the Ontario Court of Justice in Cornwall.
