July 12th, 2017 - A twenty nine year old St. Thomas man was arrested early last
evening after climbing a 140 foot construction crane on a dare.
A passerby became concerned when he noticed a person at the top of the crane around
9 p.m. last night and contacted police. Police, fire and ambulance all attended
the scene where the male was ordered down repeatedly.
Contact was made via cell phone and eventually the male crawled down. The man was
arrested and charged with mischief and breach of conditions for consuming alcohol.
He will appear in court to answer to the charges in August.
