Man Assaults Common-Law, Drives into Ditch, Hides in Shed

Release Date: July 31, 2018


On July 30, 2018 the accused and victim were in their west end residence. The accused was allegedly drinking and became verbally abusive with the victim over what she was making for dinner. At approximately 9:30 p.m. the accused went into the bedroom where the victim was laying down and physically kicked her out of the bed. When the victim called police the accused attempted to leave in a vehicle, but while reversing he ran into the ditch on the opposite side of the roadway.

Responding officers located the accused hiding and passed out in a garden shed at the rear of the residence. Unable to wake the accused, Frontenac Paramedics were called and the accused was transported to hospital. Once the accused became conscious and was medically cleared, he was arrested and transported to police headquarters where he provided two breath samples. The accused was found to have just under 1 ½ times the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

A 69-year-old local man is charged with assault, care and control of a vehicle while impaired by alcohol, and over 80 mg of alcohol care and control.

The accused was later released with a future court date. His driver’s licence is automatically suspended for 90 days and would face a one year suspension if convicted.

Parking Lot Dropped Money Scammers Targeting Kingston

Release Date: July 31, 2018

18-21625, 27910, 28117

Kingston Police have received multiple complaints of a parking lot scam currently targeting local residents.

The scam involves a male and female or lone male approaching a victim walking to his/her vehicle. The suspect produces a bill (usually $20), claiming to have found it near the victim’s vehicle and asks if it belongs to them. Once the victim pulls out a wallet or purse to check, the suspect steals their bank card, leaves and immediately makes withdrawals.

Often the victim does not realize their card has been stolen at that time, as the suspect uses distraction techniques such as “accidently” bumping the victims’ wallet out of their hand. On one occasion the suspect outright grabbed the victim’s wallet and stole the card. An accomplice inside the store may be obtaining the PIN by getting in line behind the victim. Loses are typically around $1000, however one victim reported a theft of $4500.

Three of these thefts occurred in the Walmart parking lot located at 1130 Midland Avenue, however it is suspected other areas may be targeted. The photo below from is from a bank where one of the stolen debit cards was used. The male in the photo is a suspect for use of the stolen card, it is unknown at this time if he was involved in the actual theft.

Anyone with information, is asked to please contact Detective Brad Hughes at 613-549-4660 ext. 6286 or via email at
