submitted by OPP

Grenville County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged three people after a break and enter.

On December 13, 2023 at around 11 am, Grenville County officers were called to a break and enter at a home on County Road 15 where it was reported that three people had stolen the homeowners’ vehicle. The occupant fled to a nearby residence. The culprits then left in the stolen vehicle and, after a brief pursuit where one officer’s cruiser was struck, they were located on County Road 6 in Elizabethtown-Kitley Township. During their travels, the accused stole diesel for their petrol driven car which meant that the vehicle came to stop on its own. No one was hurt.

The OPP’s Emergency Response Team attended the scene along with the Forensic Identification Services.

Three people were arrested and charged.

  • theft under $5,000,
  • disguise with intent,
  • theft over $5,000 of a motor vehicle, and
  • break, enter a dwelling house with intent to commit indictable offence.

A 58 year old woman from Cornwall was also charged with:

  • possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 – two charges.

  • dangerous operation – two charges,
