Citizens Assist in Penetanguishene Arrest
(PENETANGUISHENE, ON) -Members of the Southern Georgian Bay Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded in the early evening hours of Saturday December 9, 2017 to a report of a person defacing a Town of Penetanguishene building with spray paint on Peel Street. Responding officers attended and located a male who was identified by some observant citizens who witnessed the act.
25 year old Tyler FRANZ of Penetanguishene was arrested at the scene by attending officers and transported back to Detachment for further investigation. He has been charged with Obstructing a Peace Officer contrary to sec 129 (a) of the Criminal Code of Canada and also 10 counts of Mischief Under $5000.00 contrary to section 430(4) of the Criminal Code of Canada. He was released from police custody on a recognisance to attend before the Ontario Court of Justice in Midland on January 4, 2018.
This investigation is still ongoing as the Town of Penetanguishene has had numerous acts of graffiti over the last several months.
The OPP would like to thank those observant citizens who made the difference by reporting the crime and will be formally recognizing them at a later date.
