Drunken fools don't mix well with
By Laura Katsirdakis
Criminal types are not getting any smarter, as this week's
crime report shows.
Last Thursday, police arrested a 31 year-old man for harassment
and besetting, said Const. Cam Halliday of the London Police

An unusual incident occurred this week when a male showed
up at the CCPS office with an e-mail from the Winnipeg police
telling him he had been reported missing, Mics said. CCPS contacted
the Winnipeg police to let them know he was alive and well.
The moral of the story? When you move off to university, please,
tell your parents.
