(GODERICH, ON) – An observant witness that took the time to call police helped officers catch a suspect over the weekend breaking into a sea container at the Goderich beachfront.
On Saturday, January 30, 2021 at approximately 5:30 p.m. Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers responded to Cove Road in Goderich to search for a suspect that was observed cutting the locks off of a storage container. Officers arrived on scene and began searching for the suspect. Some fresh tracks in the snow helped lead the officers to their suspect and he was arrested without incident.
Upon arresting the suspect a search was conducted and police located the accused in possession of break-in tools and a quantity of methamphetamine. Further checks revealed the accused was serving a probation sentence and he was failing to comply with several conditions of his release.
Aaron WEDGE, 30 years of age of No Fixed Address has been charged with Mischief, Possession of Break-in Instruments, Possession of a Schedule I Substance – Methamphetamine and five counts of Fail to Comply with a Probation Order.
He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for March 1, 2021 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
