Lock it or lose it

Police are reminding you to remove your valuables from your vehicle when you’re not inside and to lock the doors when you’re not around.

Officers said it’s also a good idea to remove your garage door opener if your vehicle is parked outside so that thieves can’t get into your garage or your home through an unlocked door.


Charges laid after domestic dispute call

A 26-year-old Thamesville man is charged with domestic-related offences after police were called to a residence near Bothwell.

Police said after they arrived at the home Monday morning, they learned that there were previous “incidents” during the couple’s relationship, so they made an arrest and took the accused into custody pending a bail hearing.
