NORTH DUNDAS — A Winchester residence suffered a daytime break-in sometime yesterday (Wednesday, May 29).

SD&G OPP officers were called shortly after 5:20 p.m. to the St. Lawrence Street address, where somebody had unlawfully entered the premises and stolen currency and electronics.

North Dundas driver goes 144 km/h in 80 km/h zone, passenger also arrested for violating release conditions

NORTH DUNDAS — A 30-year-old motorist was stopped for allegedly doing 144 km/h in an 80 km/h zone on Guy Rd. in the wee hours of the morning on May 25 — also triggering a cascade of legal troubles for a 41-year-old passenger in the vehicle.

The involved SD&G OPP officer immediately impounded the vehicle and seized the driver’s licence for the same seven-day period, as per severe Stunt Driving provisions in the Highway Traffic Act. Exceeding the posted speed limit by 50 km/h or more also carries the possibility of a $10,000 fine — if found guilty in court. That person’s identity was not revealed because it involved provincial offences alone.

The officer also arrested a passenger in the vehicle on grounds he was allegedly violating previous release conditions — after intercepting the duo at 2:41 a.m. that morning.  According to the SD&G OPP, North Dundas resident Christopher Moore, 41, is charged with six counts of failing to comply with conditions of a recognizance and two counts of obstructing a peace officer.

Moore was held for a bail hearing in Cornwall.

The detachment reports that St. Denis faces a charge of assault. He was released to appear July 10 in Alexandria court.

SOUTH GLENGARRY — A teen was pulled over May 24 for a Highway Traffic Act violation on County Rd. 34 — and got arrested.

Super speeders stopped in South Dundas

SD&G — Super speeders from North York and Montreal had their Highway 401 travels cut short in South Dundas when SD&G OPP officers clocked them exceeding the posted 100 km/h limit by more than 50 km/h. That threshold triggers the immediate seven-day seizure of the drivers’ permits and the impounding of vehicles for the same period. Those so charged also face a maximum fine of $10,000 if found guilty in court.

Suddenly left without wheels and licences May 26 in South Dundas were: a 22-year-old North York driver doing 152 km/h at 12:47 a.m.; and a 24-year-old Montreal driver doing 153 km/h at 8:30 p.m.
