Arrest from weekend Domestic Disturbance
Officers from the Brockville Police Service responded to a 9-1-1 hang-up up call early Saturday morning and when they arrived they found the female resident had left the residence and her common law spouse inside. The male had been drinking and told officers all were fine, the call was dialed in error by his spouse who had left.
Police continued to look for the woman to check on her well-being and ensure her safety and eventually located her. She advised officers they had been with friends for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration at their apartment before going out for the evening. When they returned to their residence after being out she and her common-law husband began to have an argument which turned physical. She called 9-1-1 before fleeing the residence.
As a result of the call and subsequent follow-up investigation police obtained a warrant for the arrest of the 41 year old Brockville man. On Wednesday afternoon at 2:10 pm police executed the warrant at the residence and arrested the male without incident. He was held in custody pending a bail hearing Thursday afternoon.

Fraudulent Water Inspector Scam
Brockville Police received several calls during the day Wednesday from residents who were getting phone calls from a company to check on their water systems. Police have confirmed with Jason Barlow Chief Operator –Water Systems for the City of Brockville they are not making these calls to residents in the city.
Phone numbers on the call display from these scammers are “spoofed “or disguised so the origin of the calls cannot be traced. They will often show up on call displays as strange combination of numbers that have been auto programmed.
Residents are encouraged to politely decline the request for inspection and to not let contractors into their homes for water inspections that they have not solicited.
