Bracebridge OPP make series of arrests Saturday, after being in the right place at the right time

drug-impaired driving, resisting arrest, trafficking, just a taste of charges laid

Bracebridge OPP were kept busy with a series of arrests over the weekend after officers just happened to be in the right place to do so.

It all started around 3:15 Saturday morning with an officer on routine patrol in Bracebridge. They report noticing a person acting suspiciously near a Wellington St. convenience store, but say the man became hostile and refused to comply with the officer’s orders. A struggle ensued and the 32-year-old man was arrested and charged with being intoxicated in a public place, and resisting arrest.

Hours later, officers on patrol noticed a vehicle leaving an area that had been closed to the public, around noon Saturday. The vehicle was stopped to find out why it was in the closed area, which led to a pair of arrests. The driver, a 29-year-old Bracebridge woman, was charged with drug-impaired driving and possession. The 40-year-old Bracebridge man in the passenger seat also faces drug possession charges.

Around 8:30 Saturday evening, Bracebridge detachment officers on foot patrol in the area of Gravenhurst’s Bethune Drive, which led to a street-level drug investigation. A suspect was taken into custody and charged with Trafficking. He will be in Bracebridge court on June 30th.
