A 51 year old female is charged with trafficking a controlled substance and her 17 year old son is charged with possession of a controlled substance, trafficking a controlled substance x 2 and breach of probation x 2. A 45 year old male and his 18 year old son are both charged with possession of a controlled substance, and a 40 year old male was also charged with possession of a controlled substance.
Graffiti in January
In the first few weeks of January there have been a few incidents involving graffiti throughout the city. Police are asking residents to report anyone seen doing graffiti. Graffiti vandalism not only devalues property, it also gives the impression that no one cares about the neighbourhood, which, in turn, creates an open invitation for littering, loitering and further vandalism. The following are photographs of the recent incidents. Anyone with information on these photographs are encouraged to contact St. Thomas Police or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477
