Two face smuggling charges
The Cornwall Regional Task Force (CRTF) charged two people with possession of unstamped tobacco January 25 during operations in South Glengarry.
Alexis McDougall, 35, of Ottawa, and Cornwall resident Robert Petry, 42, were arrested after they were stopped by police along the St. Lawrence River shoreline and a subsequent search of their pickup truck revealed 50 bags of unstamped fine-cut tobacco, weighing approximately 660 kg.
Mr. Petry was later released and is scheduled to appear in Cornwall court February 27.
Ms. McDougall, who was also charged with failure to comply with an undertaking, was held in custody pending a bail hearing.
The Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry OPP charged a 17-yearold South Glengarry girl with taking a motor vehicle without consent and driving a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s licence following a report that a Dodge Dakota pickup truck had been stolen from a Loyalist Road property on February 1. The suspect is scheduled to appear in Cornwall court on March 8.
The Cornwall Community Police Service charged a 31-yearold Williamstown man with breach of probation, breach of a court order, and failing to keep the peace following an alleged series of incidents involving his ex- girlfriend during the month of January. The suspect was in custody on other charges when he was advised of the additional charges on January 31.
