On the 19th of May, 2020, in the afternoon, a woman was unloading items from her vehicle at a west side address. The woman began carrying the contents in to a residence, however when she returned to her vehicle for a second trip, she found a man sitting in the drivers seat attempting to steal it.

The woman confronted the suspect who exited the car and fled on foot. The woman then pursued the suspect, chasing him until she was assisted by additional witnesses and the Police arrived. The suspect was located and arrested a short time afterward.

Raccoons a Common Sight in Daytime

Each spring local police services deal with a surge of calls from the public regarding what they believe are ‘rabid’ raccoons. These raccoons appear around residential properties during the daytime hours causing people concern. Police are wanting to educate residents that these raccoons are not necessarily rabid, but rather the animals may be experiencing a common condition called distemper.


During Police Week we are celebrating the different departments here at OSPS and we are especially proud of the daily work of our Uniform Branch to keep the streets of Owen Sound safe. Last week police arrested a male and seized a conducted energy weapon and an imitation firearm.
