A twenty two year old London woman wanted on a warrant issued by the Elgin County Court was arrested on Sunday October 14th in London. Officers from the London Police Service were dealing with the woman on an unrelated matter when they learned she was wanted. The woman was arrested and taken into custody by London Police until she could be transported back to St. Thomas. The woman was processed and released on a Promise to Appear in Court. The warrant was issued for the woman’s arrest after she failed to attend her court date for charges stemming from an incident in St. Thomas back in June of 2018. The woman was driving an unregistered vehicle without a drivers licence when she failed to stop for a R.I.D.E check. Officers followed the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop on Sunset Drive just north of Talbot Street where the woman was arrested for impaired driving offences and drug possession. Officers located cannabis, cocaine and psilocybin mushrooms and open liquor in her purse and in her vehicle.

A thirty two year old male was arrested after he led officers on a foot chase through several backyards just North of Talbot Street around 3:30 pm Sunday afternoon.
