Police are advising residents to be wary of people canvassing door-to-door, requesting donations for the Elizabeth Fry Society.
After checking with the society, police were advised they don’t have anyone canvassing in the community, leading officers to believe that the persons involved were fraudulently canvassing for donations.
Anyone who is approached in relation to donating monies at their door should use caution and ensure the person making the request has the proper identification from the organization for which they are soliciting.
Happy … birthday?
A birthday celebration landed a woman turning 30 with a ‘gift’ she likely wishes she could return.
Early Thursday morning, police attended a Barrie residence in regards to reported problems with an intoxicated female. The woman was celebrating her birthday but had far too much to drink, say police, who subsequently took her into custody.
Once in the holding cells, the woman spat in one of the officer’s face. As a result, she is now facing a criminal charge of Assault Police. She was released after sobering up.
