By: Huron County OPP
January 11, 2018


(ASHFIELD-COLBORNE-WAWANOSH, ON) - Huron County OPP officers are investigating the recent theft of a snowmobile from a Nile Road residence.
The police investigation has determined that Jan. 6, the owner parked his snowmobile, a Yamaha Sidewinder, on the front yard of a home located on Nile Road. After the owner left the machine unattended, with the keys in the ignition, an opportunistic thief came along and stole the machine. The sled was stolen sometime between 8 p.m. Jan. 6, and 8 a.m. Jan. 7.
The stolen snowmobile is described as a 2017 black and orange Yamaha Sidewinder valued at approximately $20,000.

(GODERICH, ON) - A traffic stop in Goderich last week, by Community Street Crimes Unit members, has led to the arrest and subsequent criminal charges for a Goderich man.

It was just after 12:30 p.m. Jan. 4, when a Huron County OPP officer observed the prohibited driver enter a grey Cadillac that had been parked on Nelson Street. The investigating officer followed the vehicle a short distance and watched as the driver parked and entered into a business located on Victoria Street. During this time, the investigating officer was able to confirm the driver was still bound by court conditions to not be driving a motor vehicle.

Moments later, the man returned to his vehicle and proceeded to drive away. The suspect vehicle was followed a short distance and when the driver arrived at his destination on Balvina Drive, police made contact with him.

He was placed under arrest for driving while prohibited and promptly taken into custody. A search incident to arrest revealed the driver to be in possession of controlled substances and open liquor.

It was also determined the accused was currently serving a probation sentence and he was failing to abide by conditions of his order.

As a result, Catlin DAER, 27, of Goderich has been charged with Drive While Disqualified, two counts of Possession of a Schedule I Substance, four counts of Fail to Comply with Probation Order and Have Open Liquor in Other than Licensed Premises, Residence or Private Place. He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for Feb. 5, at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.



(HURON COUNTY, ON) - Huron County OPP and Huron County Paramedic Services are pleased to announce the launch of "Project Lifesaver Huron" taking place Wednesday, Jan. 17.
The primary goal of Project Lifesaver is to provide a timely response to save lives and reduce the potential for injury for adults and children who may wander due to Alzheimer Disease, Autism, Down Syndrome, Acquired Brain Injury, and other cognitive conditions. 

"We are very pleased to be able to partner with Huron County Paramedic Services to bring Project Lifesaver to the citizens of Huron County," says inspector Jason Younan, Huron County OPP detachment commander. "I'm certain Project Lifesaver will save lives in Huron County just as it has around the world. Our skilled and highly-trained emergency responders will be able to use this time-tested technology to bring loved ones home to their families. If you or your loved one could benefit from this program, I encourage you to look into it further."

Pre-registered clients wear a one-ounce transmitter, similar to a wristwatch that emits a signal every second. If the person goes missing, his/her caregiver calls 9-1-1 and informs the call taker that the person is registered with Project Lifesaver Huron. Trained OPP officers immediately respond to the client's last known location and begin searching for the lost client. The tracking equipment (portable directional antennae) can detect a signal from the client's transmitter from two kilometres away on a ground search and approximately seven kilometres away by air.

Project Lifesaver International was founded in 1999 in Chesapeake, Virginia. It is a community-based, public safety, non-profit organization whose motto is "Bringing Loved Ones Home." Project Lifesaver International has assisted in 3,381 successful rescues with the average search time of 35 minutes.

There is a one-time set-up fee and a nominal monthly fee to participate in this program. For more information please contact: Joanne Hickey, community paramedicine co-ordinator, County of Huron, at 519-524-8394 X 3331.
