The Ontario Provincial Police Norfolk County detachment charged a 27-year-old male after police stopped a motor vehicle on Simcoe Street, east of Tillsonburg.
On Saturday, January 28, at approximately 2:28 a.m., police were contacted by a concerned citizen about a vehicle travelling eastbound on London Street in Tillsonburg. Officers patrolling the area located the vehicle and stopped it to investigate the driver at a Simcoe Street address.
