On Aug. 4, 2020 the Communications Centre of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) in Orillia received a complaint at 2:04 a.m. from a Midland resident reporting suspicious persons checking out parked vehicles on College Street, Midland.

Attending officers put the grab on a person walking down the street at 2:09 a.m. with a set of golf clubs. Further search of the person resulted in recovering a number of debit and gift cards and a sum of loose Canadian currency coin.

Charged is Anita Rose Robichaud, 46 years old of no fixed address, with the following offences contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada:

  • Trespassing at Night
  • Theft Under $5,000 from a Motor Vehicle
  • Possession Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000 - in Canada
  • Fail to Comply with Probation Order
  • Possession of a Credit Card
  • Theft of Credit Card

The accused remains in police custody awaiting a video bail hearing and will appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Midland at a future date. The recovered stolen property has been returned to the rightful owners who thank those community minded members that "made the call to police"

Uniformed OPP Officers on patrol remind motorists to practise "Lock It or Lose It".
