Halton Regional Police have been very busy charging suspects. Yesterday an Oakville resident was arrested and charged after a tip was received by a local resident.  The second investigation resulted in four youths being charged. The youths forced a 14 year old to the ground and stole his shoes. The shoes were returned.

“If you see something, say something.”

Police charged an Oakville Resident

On April 15, 2018, an alert member of the public recognized an unfamiliar vehicle parked in her neighbour’s driveway in the area of Third Line and Marine Drive in the Town of Oakville.

Based on these keen observation skills, she contacted the Halton Police to request an investigation into the matter. As a result, police located a female in the suspect vehicle who was trespassing on the property and was in possession of break and enter tools along with illegal drugs.

Kelly SLANHOF (37) of Oakville was arrested and charged with:

  1. trespassing at night
  2. possession of break-in instruments
  3. unauthorized possession of a weapon
  4. possession of a controlled substance (2 counts)
  5. resist arrest

She was held in custody pending a bail hearing.

This is an excellent example of citizens looking out for each other and being aware of their surroundings. The quick actions of the witness contacting the police and not confronting the suspect led police to discover an individual committing multiple criminal offences and may have prevented a break and enter.

Anyone who may have any additional information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the Oakville Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825 4747 ext. 2216

Police charged four youth

On April 6th, 2018 at approximately 10:00pm four males approached a 14-year-old boy in the area of Maple Grove Plaza in Oakville. The four males concealed their faces by tightening the hoods on their sweaters and proceeded to force the victim to the ground.

The males collectively removed his recently purchased Air Jordan running shoes and fled in two separate vehicles. The victim was not injured in the attack.

Halton Police investigated the incident and identified and subsequently arrested the four young persons responsible. Their identities are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. The youths will be dealt with by way of an extrajudicial sanction. The shoes were recovered and returned to the victim.

Anyone who may have any additional information regarding this incident is asked to contact Detective Constable Autumn Mills of the Halton Regional Police Service, Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4747 ext. 2285.

Tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers “See Something? Hear Something? Know Something? Contact Crime Stoppers” at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or through the web at www.crimestoppers.ca.

Please be reminded that all persons charged are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
