(CENTRAL HURON, ON) - A Blyth resident will be making a trip to court later this year following his arrest and subsequent charges in relation to an incident that took place in Clinton last week.
Shortly before midnight on Wednesday, April 1st, 2020 Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers observed the accused operating a minivan on Albert Street in Clinton. Officers stopped the vehicle and while police were confirming the licence status of the driver he left his vehicle and went into a nearby apartment building. Moments later police received confirmation the driver was in fact prohibited from driving and was also currently serving a probation sentence in the community officers.
Shortly thereafter police located the male inside the apartment complex and he was arrested and released without incident. Gerald REID, 41 years of age, from Blyth has been charged with Prohibited Driving and Fail to Comply with a Probation Order. He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for June 8, 2020 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Goderich.
