Don’t mess with the bylaw officer
A man breaking the downtown dog bylaw was warned last week after failing to produce ID for a bylaw officer.
Police were called after he refused to identify himself and walked away. Officers located him and arrested him for obstructing a peace officer.

Booze leads to girl’s arrest
A girl was arrested early Friday in the 400 block of Stanley Street after police spotted her with open liquor.
Sgt. Paul Bayes says after asking for her name, the officer “felt things were not adding up” so he and others continued to question her identity while searching police computer systems.
Bayes says they discovered she was lying to them. She was arrested for obstructing a police officer and multiple liquor offences and later released but faces “significant” fines
“The arresting officer spent some time with her and explained the consequences of attempting to obstruct a police officer in the course of his duties,” Bayes said.
