Operate Vehicle With No Insurance x 2
(Innisfil, ON) On November 14, 2017 around 11:30 p.m., a South Simcoe Police officer out on general patrol in the area of Highway 89 near the 5th Sideroad of Innisfil noted a vehicle with an expired validation sticker. The officer stopped the vehicle and confirmed the driver to be the registered owner. The owner openly admitted to the officer the vehicle had no insurance. As a result he was charged with Owner Operate Motor Vehicle on a Highway - No Insurance and Driver Motor Vehicle No Currently Validated Permit. The accused was left to arrange to have his vehicle towed.
Just 32 minutes later, just after midnight on Wednesday, November 15, the same driver was spotted by the same officer, driving southbound on the 10th Sideroad of Innisfil. Again the driver was stopped, confirmed to be the owner of the vehicle and was unable to produce valid insurance and validation tag for the same car. The 39 year old man from Innisfil, if convicted, can be facing up to $15 000 in fines.
Rebate on Furnace Scam
On Tuesday, November 14, 2017, South Simcoe Police were notified by a member of our the community about a call she had received from the "Ontario Government". The caller was able to provide her last name and her postal code and further explained that she was entitled to a rebate from the government for her air conditioning unit. A crew would be sent out, she was told, to inspect both her furnace and air conditioner and install a new one if needed.
The complainant was sceptical and went online after and learned the government does not call for these rebates.
