(RENFREW, ON) - The Renfrew Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigated 342 calls for service between Monday July 30 and Monday August 6.



Domestic Violence



Arnprior and Renfrew officers investigated 9 domestic disputes during the past week. One male was charged with three counts of assault and two counts of breach of probation, and one male was charged with 11 criminal charges including sexual assault and assault with a weapon. No other criminal offences were alleged. If you or someone you know is living in or involved in an abusive relationship help is available. Contact Bernadette McCann House 24/7 for support, advice or the safety of a shelter at 1-800-267-4930. The Women's Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County is also available 24/7 for information and support at 1-800-663-3060. You could also attend the emergency department of any hospital in Renfrew County and ask to speak to a member of the Assault Response Team. In emergencies call 9-1-1.



Break and Enter



Renfrew OPP officers investigated three break and enters during the past week. On Friday August 3 a homeowner interrupted a break in on Opeongo Road in Renfrew. The suspect was arrested and charged (see previous media release for further details)

On Sunday August 5 a resident of an apartment on Harriet Street Arnprior discovered a broken window. Further investigation revealed the apartment broken into overnight Saturday night to Sunday morning. Physical evidence was seized and the investigation is continuing.

On Monday August 6 two storage units on Highway 60 near Renfrew were discovered broken into. It is not known at this time if anything was stolen. Physical surveillance shows a male and female at the scene. The police investigation is continuing.



Impaired Driver



On Saturday August 4 at approximately 10:30 pm Renfrew OPP officers responded to a report that a witness to a possible impaired driver had made a citizen's arrest of the suspect. Officers arrived at the location on Whelan Road in the Township of Admaston Bromley to find a male driver who had been drinking. After failing a roadside alcohol screening test he was arrested and taken to the detachment for further breath tests. At the conclusion of the investigation officers charged Garett McDONALD aged 18 of Renfrew with driving over 80mgs and being a novice driver with a blood alcohol content (BAC) above 0. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on September 12. Provincial Constable Marc Bennett led the investigation.



On Monday August 6 at approximately 9:10 am OPP responded to a driving complaint regarding a vehicle all over the road almost causing a head on collision on Highway 17 in McNab Braeside Township. Police located and stopped the suspect vehicle. The female driver was arrested for impaired driving. Following breath tests at the detachment Anne McKENNIREY aged 58 of Bristol Que., was charged with impaired driving and driving over 80mgs. She was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on September 12. PC Jason Golds led the investigation.



Witnesses to suspected impaired drivers are encouraged to call 9-1-1. The OPP consider impaired driving a life threatening emergency! Provide as much detail as you can about the vehicle, licence plate, location and direction of travel. Did you know the only exception to the distracted driving law for the public is in an emergency to call 9-1-1? It is legal if you can safely do so, otherwise pull over and make the call. We do not encourage people to make a citizen's arrest for public safety reasons.
