The Brockville Police Service has received reports of a yet another telephone scam. The “send money” scam has been around for some time, but has taken on a new script. A call is made by the suspect to the victim. The caller indicates that they are with a law firm and a loved one has committed a criminal offence. The fraudsters then request money from the victim so that they can be bailed out of jail or for lawyer fees.
To coincide with the start of a new school year officers conducted some traffic enforcement at community safety zones. In all 2 Highway Traffic Act charges were laid for various offences and 5 warnings issued. None of the infractions involved school buses.
