WINCHESTER — Two youth were arrested Mon., Sept. 10 after police responded to a report of thefts along Main Street in the village.
The culprits had entered various garages and sheds, removing an unconfirmed number of bicycles.
A 17-year-old who is well known to police was arrested and charged with possession of property obtained by crime, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), two counts of failure to comply with conditions of recognizance, and two counts of failure to comply with probation. He’s the same youth who was arrested last month following a string of break-ins along Fred Street, Christie Lane, and Annable Street. His charges at the time included five counts of break and enter, possession of property obtained by crime, failure to comply with conditions of undertaking, and 10 counts of failure to comply with previous probation orders. At the time, he was held in custody ahead of a bail court hearing in Cornwall.
It was a similar scenario this time around, as the 17-year-old remained in custody before going before the judge in Cornwall.
He had an accomplice with him Sept. 10, a 16-year-old from South Dundas. The male youth faces charges of possession of property obtained by crime, and two counts of failure to comply with probation orders. He is to be in Morrisburg court Tues., Oct. 9.
A 20-year-old female was also located during the incident, and she was already wanted by police. The investigation into her background indicated she was in contravention of conditions imposed from a previous incident, and had several other charges against her. Her arrest also turned up a quantity of marijuana and methamphetamine.
Roxane Hanson faces eight counts of failure to comply with probation orders, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one charge of fraud (less than $5,000).
She was held in custody ahead of a bail court hearing in Cornwall.
