They seized more than 790 metham­phetamine pills and a replica hand­gun. Ti­mothy Jack MacIn­nis, 32, of North Grenville, has been charged with pos­ses­sion of metham­phetamine pills for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing; pos­ses­sion of a weapon for a dan­ger­ous pur­pose; and hav­ing liquor in an open con­tainer in other than li­cenced premises.

Weapons seized in Gan

GANANOQUE – Town po­lice ar­rested two peo­ple and seized a quan­tity of weapons Tues­day, in con­nec­tion with “sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity” out­side a west-end res­i­dence that in­volved gun­fire. Dur­ing a traf­fic stop, po­lice ar­rested a man and woman and seized “sev­eral weapons,” in­clud­ing bear spray, knives, am­mu­ni­tion, an axe, base­ball bats, a col­lapsi­ble ba­ton, sev­eral pel­let/ BB guns, am­mu­ni­tion and a bul­let-proof vest, along with crystal metham­phetamine and mar­i­juana, po­lice re­ported Wed­nes­day. Po­lice then got a search war­rant for the res­i­dence, “which was be­lieved to be tar­geted in an ear­lier in­ci­dent in­volv­ing gun­fire,” po­lice added. “There was no­body in­jured in that par­tic­u­lar in­ci­dent,” said Sgt. Rich Swann, adding the in­ves­ti­ga­tion was still ac­tive. Swann had no fur­ther de­tails about the gun­fire, in­clud­ing the time it hap­pened. Po­lice were spar­ing with fur­ther de­tails be­cause of the sen­si­tiv­ity of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Howie Arnold Percy Mur­ray, 23, and El­iz­a­beth La­celle-Ren­shaw, 22, of Gananoque, were held in cus­tody for show cause hear­ings, charged with pos­ses­sion of a weapon for dan­ger­ous pur­pose; unau­tho­rized pos­ses­sion of a weapon; knowl­edge of unau­tho­rized pos­ses­sion of a weapon; pos­ses­sion of a pro­hib­ited weapon con­trary to pro­hi­bi­tion or­der; pos­ses­sion of prop­erty ob­tained by crime; ob­struct­ing a peace of­fi­cer; pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana; and pos­ses­sion of crystal metham­phetamine. This is the sec­ond in­ci­dent this month in­volv­ing bear spray in Gananoque; Joshua Kirk Ser­son, 26, of Gananoque, faces mul­ti­ple charges in con­nec­tion with an Oct. 1 bear spray in­ci­dent po­lice called “un­pro­voked.” “There doesn’t ap­pear to be any re­la­tion to this (lat­est) in­ci­dent,” said Swann.

Week­end blitz nets driv­ers

Pro­vin­cial po­lice in Grenville County nabbed mul­ti­ple driv­ers in con­nec­tion with a se­ries of of­fences dur­ing a road safety blitz over the long week­end. From Fri­day through Mon­day, the On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice joined its polic­ing part­ners for Op­er­a­tion Im­pact, a na­tional road safety cam­paign fo­cused on im­paired driv­ing, mov­ing and seat­belt vi­o­la­tions, dis­tracted driv­ing and speed­ing. Of­fi­cers at the Grenville County de­tach­ment handed out a total of 178 speed­ing charges, two stunt driv­ing charges and seven mov­ing vi­o­la­tion charges, po­lice re­ported Tues­day. Po­lice also charged six peo­ple with im­paired driv­ing. Each year, thou­sands of peo­ple are killed in traf­fic crashes and many more are se­ri­ously in­jured, the OPP re­minded the public. Po­lice re­minded mem­bers of the public to do their part to keep the roads safe. “Pas­sen­gers can take care of their own safety by speak­ing up when in a ve­hi­cle with a driver who en­dan­gers their safety and cit­i­zens can re­port dan­ger­ous driv­ing by call­ing 911 when they see it hap­pen­ing,” po­lice added.

Driv­ers nabbed in Leeds

Pro­vin­cial po­lice in Leeds County stopped a num­ber of driv­ers over the Thanks­giv­ing hol­i­day week­end in con­nec­tion with a se­ries of traf­fic of­fences.

Mid-town break-ins con­tinue

Brockville po­lice con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate break-ins in the city’s mid-town area. On Tues­day af­ter­noon, a res­i­dent of Sal­is­bury Av­enue re­ported his garage had been bro­ken into on Thurs­day, Oct. 5th. He ini­tially thought only a small amount of change was taken but soon re­al­ized he was also miss­ing a num­ber of power tools, said po­lice. It’s the lat­est in a se­ries of re­cent mid-town break-and-en­ter in­ci­dents. Area res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to pro­tect them­selves from would-be thieves by mak­ing sure all doors and win­dows are se­cured, garages and stor­age sheds are lit and valu­able items are kept out of view of thieves ei­ther by draw­ing cur­tains or se­cur­ing them out of sight. Peo­ple are ad­vised to let their neigh­bours know when they are go­ing away, with any­one check­ing on the res­i­dence re­port­ing any sus­pi­cious per­sons or ac­tiv­ity to po­lice.

Cou­ple in­volved in pair of disturbances

Brockville po­lice dealt twice with the same cou­ple over a 12-hour pe­riod in con­nec­tion with two sep­a­rate dis­tur­bance com­plaints Tues­day af­ter­noon and early Wed­nes­day morn­ing. The cou­ple, a 21-year-old Brockville woman and her 18-year-old boyfriend, first came to the at­ten­tion of po­lice Tues­day af­ter­noon when of­fi­cers were dis­patched to a Perth Street ad­dress. The res­i­dent there asked that the cou­ple be re­moved. The pair, who are friends of the com­plainant, had re­port­edly walked into the res­i­dence and caused a com­mo­tion in­side, dis­turb­ing the other ten­ants in the build­ing, said po­lice. When of­fi­cers ar­rived the two left the area. The young cou­ple again came to the at­ten­tion of the po­lice just after mid­night when of­fi­cers from the Brockville Po­lice and Leeds County OPP were called to a dis­tur­bance at the Su­per 8 Mo­tel on County Road 2 east of Brockville. Of­fi­cers re­sponded to a re­port of a do­mes­tic dis­tur­bance be­tween the cou­ple at the mo­tel, which calmed upon the of­fi­cers’ ar­rival. The do­mes­tic dis­tur­bance was still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion Wed­nes­day.
