(Bradford, ON) On January 29th, 2015, South Simcoe Police were called to investigate a Break & Enter at a home on the 5th Line in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury. Several items of jewelry were stolen in the theft. Officers from the Street Crime Unit were assigned to the case and teamed up with their partners from the Ontario Provincial Police and Barrie Police Service who were investigating similar occurrences in their area. On March 11th, the combined efforts of all three agencies resulted in the arrest of a 33 year old Barrie man.

(Innisfil, ON) On Wednesday, March 11th, a North Division officer was conducting traffic enforcement in the Lefroy area. Around 2:30 p.m., the constable stopped a car and learned the driver was unlicenced. A further check revealed the man was driving his Ford Explorer without any insurance. A 27 year old Lefroy man is facing charges of Driving Without a Licence and Driving Without Insurance. He will be appearing before a Justice of the Peace next month. If convicted, he faces a minimum fine of $5,000 for Driving Without Insurance.
In Ontario, all vehicles must be insured for third-party liability for at least $200,000. This covers you in the event that you injure or kill someone or damage someone's property while driving. Collision insurance to cover damage to your own vehicle is a good idea, but not required by law. When driving your own or someone else's vehicle, you must carry the “pink slip” (liability insurance card) for that particular vehicle.
