Woodstock Police Briefs

Briefs include an intoxicated woman who confused her cell phone with her drivers license, a middle aged man picking fights downtown and a stolen truck at the Community Complex.

WOODSTOCK - Woodstock Police responded to 120 calls for service over the weekend. 

The calls included a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic extended cab truck that was stolen from the Woodstock Community Complex. Police were called to the complex on Friday night around 8 p.m. A Norwich man had parked the truck and locked the doors and it was stolen while he was inside the community centre. The black truck had 20 inch chrome rims, 31 inch Pirelli tries, a large chrome rear view tow mirrors, a light bar installed in the front grille and one spare tire in the rear bed box. 

The Ontario licence plate was AN12762. The vehicle was locked. 

Police also dealt with a few cases of people being drunk in public. 

They were called out to a fight downtown on Saturday morning around 1:00 a.m. When police stopped their marked cruiser, a 27 year old woman tried to get into the front passengers seats of the cop car. The woman was apparently very drunk and had a difficult time standing and speaking. Police asked for i.d. and she handed over her cell phone and started to walk away. She was taken into custody and charged for being intoxicated in a public place. 

Another case happened on Sunday morning. Once again police were called to a fight downtown around 2:00 a.m. Police were directed to a 41 year old who was at one of the bars downtown trying to pick fights with people. Police tried to speak with the man who started to call the officer derogatory names. The man threatened to knock the officer out and was arrested for being intoxicated in a public place. 

Woodstock Police were also busy with R.I.D.E programs in the Friendly City. They stopped 1100 vehicles and were happy to report that all drivers were responsible and are reporting that there weren't any infractions.
