In the morning of Monday June 15th, 2020 an officer attended the 1000 block of Martin Lane for a report of a single vehicle collision which occurred the previous day. Through the investigation, it was determined that on June 14th at approximately 7:15 AM, the reporting person was travelling south on Front Road between Jewel Street and Martin Lane. At this time the front right tire on their vehicle blew which caused them to strike a construction pylon. The construction pylon struck the passenger side mirror, breaking it as well as causing damage to the passenger side window. The total damage was estimated to be greater than $2000.
At approximately 11:00 PM, a LaSalle Police Officer stopped a motor vehicle on Sprucewood Avenue for speeding 31 km/h over the posted speed limit. During the officers interaction with the driver, they made sensory and visual observations that led them to believe that the driver was operating the motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. The driver provided a breath sample into a roadside screening device which resulted in a “Fail” indicating that the drivers blood alcohol concentration was above the criminal legal limit of .080. The driver was arrested and transported to the LaSalle Police Service where further breath tests were conducted. The results of the two additional tests were well above twice the criminal legal limit of .080. The driver, a LaSalle man, was charged with having more than 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood as per section 320.14(1)(b) of the Criminal Code. The vehicle was impounded for a period of 7 days and his drivers licence suspended for a period of 90 days. The driver was also issued provincial offence notices for having open alcohol in the vehicle as well as speeding.

Credit Card Fraud: Phone Scam
A resident reported that they received a phone call from 1-416-306-4100 which they did not recognize. On the other end was a male who identified himself as “George ATKINSON” from “credit card security” and advised her that her credit cards had been compromised. ATKINSON stated that he would help her solve the issue but required some extra information (debit/credit card number, email address, cell phone number) all of which, the resident provided. He also asked for her email password but she did not provide this. “ATKINSON” then instructed her that in order to get some of her money back she would need to attend Freshco on Malden Road and purchase a gift card totalling $800.00. She then began to question the male and became suspicious. ATKINSON then got angry with her and tried to convince her to attend Freshco. Her refusal to make the purchase ended the conversation.
