Arson and Impaired


March 6th, 2018 - A thirty four year old homeless man has been arrested after setting fire to an abandoned couch. The male was recorded on security video around 4 a.m. Monday morning wandering through the alley way behind 210 Talbot Street when he stopped at an abandoned couch. The man could be seen on tape leaning down and holding a lighter to one of the cushions on the couch. The man then continued walking eastbound as the cushion began to smolder. A short time later a citizen noticed flames in the area and called 911. St. Thomas Fire Department attended and extinguished the fire. Police were able to identify and locate the suspect sleeping at a downtown mission where he was taken into custody without incident. As a result the accused is charged with one count of Arson Causing Damage to Property and one count of Breach of Probation. He was held in cells at the Colin McGregor Justice Building for court.


A fifty two year old St. Thomas man was arrested and charged with an impaired driving offence at the east end of Talbot Street yesterday afternoon around 2:30 p.m. after he decided to drive his vehicle downtown to purchase more alcohol. The man was reported to police as he parked in the Beer Store Parking lot where he was located by officers. The driver failed a roadside screening test and was taken to the Colin McGregor Justice Building to provide further breath samples. Test results indicated the man had almost twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system. As a result he is charged with one count of Drive Motor Vehicle With More Than 80 milligrams of Alcohol in 100 milliliters of Blood. The driver will appear in court at a later date to answer to the charge.
