Unusual Time For RIDE Check Point Causes Police to Make 2 Arrests

An odd time for a RIDE program caught at least two wrong doers by surprise.

Leeds OPP led a RIDE check stop on Jessie Street in Lyn around 4pm this past Monday (February 27th).

This led to the arrest of a 23 year old man from Frankville who was charged with Possession of Marihuana. He is scheduled to appear in Brockville court on March 31st.

During the same R.I.D.E check at the same location a 34 year old man from Lyn was found to be in possession of a suspended license. He was given a future court date to answer the charge.

The OPP are reminding motorists that RIDE checks, and traffic enforcement will continue to be a focus at any time or location within Leeds County.
