Social Media Reports of Overdose Death are False
Yesterday morning the Brockville Police Service received a phone call regarding a Facebook post stating a 39 year old man and his 34 year old girlfriend had suffered an overdose from an illicit street drug. The couple were allegedly conveyed to the Brockville General Hospital where the man was rumoured to have succumbed to the overdose.

Loud Party at Tunnel Bay
At approximately 9:30 p.m. last evening Brockville Police received a couple of phone calls of a loud party going on at one of the boats moored in Tunnel Bay. Callers stated those on board had been drinking at the time and were concerned the boat occupants were going to try and operate the boat and leave the harbor.
When police arrived the party noise had calmed. All parties had settled for the night and the boat remained docked in the harbor.
Brockville Police would like to remind boaters that consuming on boats is only permitted when the boat is docked or anchored and the vessel must have living facilities such as rest rooms and sleeping quarters. As well, operating a vessel while impaired by alcohol carries the same penalties as operating a motor vehicle.
