Theft or Tampering of Road Signs
An officer recently noticed the westbound stop sign on William St at Division St was missing and believed stolen. From prior incidents police are aware that some post-secondary students have treated such signage as trophies or displayed them on their residence walls. Kingston Police treat this as a serious issue that could have deadly repercussions if a collision occurred due to the missing traffic signs. If found to be responsible a person would be facing such Criminal Code charges of Theft Under $5,000 and Mischief.
In a worst-case scenario where a collision is attributed to the stolen sign the accused could also be charged with Criminal Negligence Causing Bodily Harm or Death, depending on the seriousness of the injuries. The maximum penalty for all of these offences is 10 years imprisonment, except for Criminal Negligence Causing Death, which carries a maximum life sentence.
Multiple Cases of Pellet Gun Shootings
Kingston Police are investigating at least two occurrences where victims have been shot and received minor injuries from an unknown person(s) firing a pellet or B.B. gun. Shortly after midnight, at approximately 12:40 a.m. on September 4 a 19-year-old female was struck in the forehead with a pellet while outside of the Queen’s University Athletic Recreation Centre (ARC), located on Earl St at Aberdeen St.
The victim and her friends were unable to locate where the shot came from or observe a suspect. The victim also advised she has a female acquaintance who advised her she was also shot with a pellet gun earlier, at approximately 12:15 a.m., in the area of the Ale House, located at Princess St near Division St. Again, no suspect was seen.
