NORTH DUNDAS — Three consecutive days on Winchester’s Fred Street coincided with an equal number of arrests and charges for a North Dundas woman.

Members of the SD&G OPP were called April 11 to the street when a Chrysler van was reported stolen from a residence a little before 3:30 a.m. Officers determined the vehicle had been taken without the owner’s permission, locating the van and driver shortly thereafter.

Emily Pollock, 38, was arrested and charged with taking a motor vehicle without consent, according to the local detachment. She was released to appear June 5 in Morrisburg court.

Pollock was arrested again and charged with the same offence when officers were summoned back to the street after a second vehicle allegedly went missing the next evening, April 12. In that case, the detachment reports a Pontiac Firebird was taken without permission shortly before 5:40 p.m. Police again located the vehicle and driver a short time later.

The accused was then held for bail and released, only to be re-arrested for allegedly breaching her release conditions the following evening, April 13, when a disturbance after 7 p.m. drew police back to Fred Street for a third time.

She faces a charge of Fail To Comply with Recognizance in the latest incident, according to the SD&G OPP, and was kept in custody pending another Cornwall bail appearance.
