On Saturday evening, a member on patrol observed a male in the area of 10th Street and Rosser Avenue riding a bicycle.  The male was seen to ride through a red traffic signal, creating a hazardous situation for motorists and pedestrians, and the officer attempted to stop him; however, the cyclist attempted to flee.  The flight was short lived as he crashed his bike into a nearby dumpster.  Upon being located, he was found to be bound by a Release Order with curfew and residency conditions, which he was in breach of.  It was also determined that he was the subject of an arrest warrant for 13 separate criminal offences.  The 44 year-old suspect was arrested and held in custody to appear for court today.

Impaired Driver:

At approximately 2:20 AM Sunday morning, a vehicle stop in the 1000 block Princess Avenue resulted in the arrest of the 44 year-old male driver for impaired driving.  Subsequent breath tests showed a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit.  He was held in custody until sober and is scheduled to appear in court on October 21st to answer to the charges.

 

Weapon Charge:

Just after 3:00 AM Sunday morning, a caller reported a male with a flashlight trying to break into a residence in the 1100 block 20th Street.  Members attended and located a 32 year-old male from Virden in the area.  He was found to be in possession of a can of bear spray and was arrested for possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.  He was released on appropriate police imposed conditions and is scheduled to appear in court on October 21st on this matter.  It was determined that no break in had occurred.

Several other arrests related to intoxication, which resulted in no charges but the subjects being held until sober.
