First Day of School=First Ticket for Running School Bus

St. Thomas Police have issued the first bus infraction for the new school year on the first day of school.  The incident happened around 4 pm during a drop off at the corner of Wilson Ave near Regent Street.  A vehicle approaching the bus from the front failed to stop for the red flashing lights, stop sign and stop bar that were all activated.  The school bus driver recorded the make, model and licence plate of the vehicle.  Police later attended the residence and fined the driver $490.00 and six demerit points.
A twenty nine year old St. Thomas man wanted on a warrant for domestic related offences was arrested at the London Court House yesterday.  The man was scheduled for an appearance on an unrelated matter when court security learned the man had a warrant for his arrest. The warrant was issued after a verbal argument between the man and his estranged wife became physical back on July 31st.   St. Thomas Police were notified and attended London to transport the accused back to St. Thomas where he was processed and released on a Promise to Appear in Court.
Stolen Truck and Trailer Recovered
A thirty five year old man of no fixed address was arrested yesterday around 1 pm after officers tracked him back to a stolen vehicle.  A white Ford pickup truck hauling a utility trailer had been reported stolen to London Police earlier in the day.  The truck was observed unoccupied in a parking lot at the corner of First Ave and Myrtle Street.  The utility trailer was observed nearby on the front lawn of 79 First Ave.  Officers arrested the man after he returned to the truck and got in the drivers side.  As a result the man is now charged with two counts of Possession of Stolen Property and one count Breach of Probation.  He was held in custody at the Colin McGregor Justice Building for Court.   This arrest is the result of joint force cooperation between the Ontario Provincial Police and St. Thomas Police Service.
