OPP briefs include two drug busts in Simcoe

A Good Samaritan in Norfolk County may have just helped a criminal get away.


On Tuesday morning, a vehicle was traveling down Radical Road in Woodhouse when they left the road and struck a row of cedar trees before stopping in a wheat field.


A passerby pulled over to help and gave this driver a lift, possibly to the Port Dover area.


The only problem is the vehicle that crashed was reported stolen from Hamilton.


Police want to speak with this Good Samaritan to help identify the individual who was driving, then crashed, the stolen grey 2000 Chrysler Neon.



A 14-year-old boy gets assaulted and robbed on the Lynn Valley Trail.


On Monday night, police say that a group of youths became involved in a verbal altercation that turned into a physical confrontation.


The young teen was then assaulted and had his black BMX bike with green handles and gold pedals stolen.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact the police.




Two drugs busts in Simcoe.


The first occurred Monday morning on North Main Street when officers on patrol spotted a vehicle that caught their attention and pulled it over.


31-year-old Luke Earl Spencer Carpenter of Norfolk County was then put under arrest and charged with the possession for the purpose of trafficking Cocaine, Adderal, Cannabis Resin, and Marijuana.


He also failed to comply with his probation order.


Then later that evening, officers pulled over another vehicle on Queensway West in Simcoe and took four people into custody.


19-year-old Nathaniel Reid-Doyle, 22-year-old Willis Zhou, 23-year-old Nahshon James, and Benjamin Duah, all from Toronto, have all been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine and meth with an additional charge of property obtained by a crime under $5000.


Zhou faces an additional charge for the position of marijuana.

All will appear in Court in Simcoe at a later date.
