September 22, Incidents

Empty Envelope Trick

On September 22nd at 12:39 pm, Brockville Police attended a north end bank for a fraud complaint.

A local 59 year old man deposited empty envelopes into his account and then began making withdrawals on the false balance. He was able to obtain almost $2000.00.

Early in the morning, we attended a north end intersection in relation to a male wandering in traffic. Turns out, it was the same subject. The accused party was arrested and charged with defrauding the bank. He was released afterwards with a future court date.


Fraudulent Credit Cards

On September 22nd at 6:30 pm, Brockville Police attended two different businesses on Parkedale Avenue in relation to attempt frauds.

Two male suspects, one black and one East Indian, attempted to purchase electronics in the amount of $3500.00 from one location and gift cards at the other. The Amex cards they were carrying had been flagged. Both parties, after being denied, fled the area in a dark grey Volvo with Quebec plates. No plate number was obtained and their identities are unknown at this time.


Don’t Mix Firearms and Alcohol

On September 22nd at 9:46 pm, Brockville Police Officers observed a man, known to them, drinking at a downtown pub. The local 35 year old was recently charged with firearm offences and was released on conditions at court, one of which was not to consume alcohol. He was arrested for breaching his release conditions and taken into custody. An appearance in bail court will take place.


Friends Caught Together

On September 22nd at 10:53 pm, Brockville Police Officers observed two young men outside a downtown bar. The parties fled on foot after noticing Police. Other Officers pitched in and the two men were located and arrested after a search of back alleyways. Both local 19 year olds were on probation orders and each had a condition not to be with one another. The one accused was released on paperwork with a future court date. The second man was held in custody for a bail hearing. Mitigating factors decided the hold on the second man. He had a long history of breaching similar orders and only days earlier had been released from custody for other incidents.


Domestic Dispute

On September 22nd at 8:58 pm, Brockville Police attended an apartment complex in the center of the city. The residents, a 41 year old female and a 40 year old male, became involved in a domestic dispute surrounding taking of each other’s property.

The man was taken to a friend’s house for the evening so things could cool down. At 11:58 pm, the man returned to the apartment, disregarding the advice of Officers. This time, he was arrested to prevent a further breach of the peace. He was released this morning without any charges.


Purse Removed From Residence

On September 23rd at 2:34 am, Brockville Police attended a north end home to investigate a break and enter. The residents heard a door close to their residence and attended downstairs. They began looking around and discovered a purse had been removed from the home. This incident looks like it is connected to other recent thefts from homes while people are sleeping.



On September 22nd, in the morning hours, a 31 year old man from the Toronto area turned himself in on an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

In late August, the male was involved in an accident in Kitley Township, he then drove into Brockville and exited his vehicle while attempting to pull over and left the car in gear. As a result, he ran over his own foot and was taken to local hospital. Officers made a demand for a blood sample at that time and the reading was sent back to Police which was over three times the legal limit. Due to the delay for the testing procedure, the warrant was issued weeks after the actual events. The warrant was executed and the accused was released on conditions and given a future court date.
