Impaired Driver/Assault w Weapon/Assault/Porch Pirates

Impaired Driver:

On the 4th of December 2020 shortly before 11pm a concerned citizen contacted the St Thomas Police Service regarding a possible impaired driver leaving a local licensed establishment in her vehicle. Police attended the area and located a female driver operating her vehicle and leaving the area. The female provided a sample into a road side screening device and registered a fail. The driver was transported to the Police station where she provided samples into an approved instrument that registered over the legal limit. The 42 year old St Thomas woman was charged operating a conveyance with a blood alcohol concentration exceeding 80 mgs and was later released with a future court date. The St Thomas Police Service would like to remind you during this holiday season to arrange a ride home in advance or call a taxi – and arrive alive.

Assault with a weapon:

On the 4th of December 2020 members of the St Thomas Police Service were called to a local business regarding an unknown disturbance. On arrival Police discovered that a male party had been asked to leave the business by a representative and a fracas had ensued. The argument turned physical and the male suspect sprayed dog and coyote spray into the face of the business representative. A 33 year old St Thomas man was arrested and charged with assault with a weapon, administering a noxious substance and breach of a court order. The man was held pending weekend video court.

Assault:

On the 4th of December 2020 a male tenant of a local apartment building contacted the St Thomas Police Service to report having been assaulted by another tenant while in the common room of the building. St Thomas Police Service attended and after an investigation a 44 year old St Thomas woman was arrested and charged with one count of assault. The woman was later released with a future court date.

Theft of Parcel:

On the 4th of December 2020 the St Thomas Police Service received the report of a stolen package delivered to a porch in the city. The victim reported that they had never received their delivery of electronics and verified that it had been delivered by the shipping company. It’s believed the package was stolen shortly after delivery. With the increase of deliveries during the holiday season the St Thomas Police Service encourages you to plan ahead for arriving deliveries – request a signature on delivery, track the package using the web or a phone app and have a neighbour or friend pick it up from your porch, or have the package delivered to your work place or another convenient location.
