Cameras assist with investigation
Cameras mounted to the police service assisted with an investigation into a motor vehicle collision at a busy nearby intersection, Sunday.
Around 10:30 p.m. police were called to the intersection of College and Sidney streets after two vehicles collided. One of the vehicles ricocheted off another following the impact and slammed into a concrete barrier intended to protect a nearby natural gas infrastructure.
There were no injuries reported and aside from the vehicles, there was no further damage.
While investigating the incident, officers turned to cameras mounted on the police service building at 459 Sidney Street and were able to piece together the chain reaction.
Charges are pending against one of the motorists involved, following completion of the investigation.

Grocery cart into vehicle leads to arrest of intoxicated male
A grocery cart combined with a family dispute and alcohol lead to a situation in which a 33-year-old Belleville man was arrested for mischief, Sunday afternoon.
Officers were initially called by a male to a disturbance in the city’s north end around 3 p.m. by a male, who claimed he had been attacked by a family member.
Upon arrival and further investigation, police determined the initial caller was intoxicated and during an altercation used a grocery cart to damage a nearby vehicle.
The male was arrested and transported to the Belleville Police Service, charged and held until sober.
Travis Graham, 33, was charged with a single count of mischief and released on conditions with an August court date.

Traffic stop leads to arrest
A 34-year-old Belleville man picked the wrong vehicle to take a ride in Saturday evening.
An officer conducting traffic enforcement in the downtown core stopped a vehicle shortly after 9 p.m.
Following an investigation, it was determined one of the passengers – a 34-year-old city man – was breaching conditions of release which were to stay in his residence at all times.
He was arrested, charged with breaching his conditions and held for a bail hearing.

Downtown defecation leads to arrest
An officer on patrol in the city’s downtown early Friday morning arrested a male after observing a disturbing act.
At the time, shortly after 4 a.m., the officer noticed a man defecating in front of a Front Street business. The male was immediately arrested and charged with Mischief.
Charged is Grant Barnes, 68, of no fixed address. He was released with a July court date to face the charge.

High speeds lead to charges, vehicle impoundment
Travelling at a high speed through a Thurlow ward Community Safety Zone wasn’t a wise choice for a 46-year-old Stirling man, Friday evening.
An officer was conducting traffic enforcement on Harmony Road around 8 p.m. when a vehicle was clocked travelling 87 km/h in a posted 40 km/h zone in a Community Safety Zone.
In addition to a charge of stunt driving, the motorist was also handed a 30-day licence suspension and his vehicle was impounded for 14 days.
Meanwhile, a couple of hours later another officer was conducting radar enforcement on Cannifton Road and pulled over a motorist travelling 30 kilometres over the limit.
During an investigation it was determined the motorist had been drinking.
As a result, a 29-year-old Trenton man received a ticket for the speed and was also issued a three-day licence suspension following a roadside alcohol test.
