Arrest made in false fire alarm

A Guelph male has been charged in relation to a false fire alarm activation at Guelph General Hospital earlier this year.

Early on January 27, the male had a verbal dispute with hospital security and ran through the hospital, pulling a fire alarm and smashing a window. On Tuesday he turned himself in to Guelph Police.

An 18-year-old Guelph male is charged with making a false alarm of fire and mischief under $5,000. He will appear in a Guelph court October 4, 2022.

Male held after missing court

A Guelph male who missed a court date on charges including carrying a weapon for a dangerous purpose was rearrested Tuesday.

Guelph Police Service officers were on patrol downtown just before 11 a.m. when they spotted a male known to be wanted. The male tried to flee as officers approached but was arrested a short distance away. A search incident to arrest revealed a driver’s licence which had been reported stolen in 2018.

A 50-year-old Guelph male is further charged with failing to attend court and possessing stolen property. He will appear in a Guelph bail court Thursday.

Driver suspended after traffic stop

A Guelph male was taken off the road for three days following a traffic stop Tuesday night.

Just after 10 p.m., a member of the Guelph Police Service stopped a vehicle in the area of Willow Road and Dawson Road.

The legal limit is 80 milligrams.

A 30-year-old Guelph male faces several Highway Traffic Act charges and had his licence suspended for three days.
