Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning we spoke about MacDonald Turkey Point Marina calling out the Norfolk OPP online and OPP Interim Detachment Commander Lisa Anderson’s response.
On Thursday afternoon, we received a phone call back from owner Danny MacDonald to tell his side of the story.
Starting with the lifejacket thefts that occurred on Tuesday after four jet skiers grabbed lifejackets off the rack outside of the closed rental building.
Anderson told myFM that the responding officer saw it more like a misunderstanding and didn’t feel criminal charges needed to be laid.
MacDonald does not agree with that line of thinking.
In the original online post on the Marina’s website it spoke about a trespassing incident on June 2nd that an OPP sergeant did not report because they did not want to do that paperwork.
Anderson told us that they have no record of responding to the marina and that officers were in Turkey point that day filing lots of paperwork through various traffic charges.
MacDonald tells us that an officer was called out and the same officer recently phoned MacDonald to follow up on the situation.
He also stresses that he does not support or endorse the idea of an officer getting fired or reprimanded for these actions as some members of the public have suggested on their page.
