Northumberland OPP Weekend Update
(NORTHUMBERLAND, ON) – The Northumberland Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) dealt with 198 incidents this past weekend, here are some examples:
– A resident on Little Lake Road in the Municipality of Brighton reported finding a 14’ aluminium boat on his shoreline that appeared to have drifted away from another cottage. If you are missing a similar boat from Little Lake please contact the Brighton OPP Detachment at 613-475-1313 or toll free 1-888-310-1122.
– A resident on Danforth Road East in Hamilton Township reported his wallet stolen from his unlocked vehicle sometime throughout the night of May 28, 2018.* Police would like to remind the public that an unlocked vehicle could not only result in an obvious loss of anything that may be left in it, but could allow an opportunistic thief the ability to gain valuable documentation that could lead to identity theft. Wallets and purses very often contain a lifetime of valuable information, not to mention currency, credit cards and other valuables that can be hard to replace. Lock it or Lose it; it’s that simple. You’ve worked hard for your identity; don’t let anyone else have what is rightfully yours.
