Lone Loss Prevention Officer confronts four Thieves

Four people have been charged with several offences after an incident at a Chemong Road business.

On July 5, 2018 a loss prevention officer at a Chemong Road business confronted four alleged shoplifters. When the four were confronted they all fled in different directions. Security pursued the group and was about to apprehend one of the suspects when they turned and sprayed him with silly spray. The pursuit continued for a distance until one of the suspects pulled a knife out, confronted the loss prevention officer and threatened to kill him.

Several uniform police officers flooded the area and were able to track down and arrest all the suspects.

As a result of the investigation the following persons were arrested and charged:

  • Laney Smith, 25 of Park Street Peterborough was charged with Assault.
