On Friday, November 14, 2014, an elderly Grey Highlands resident was contacted by someone stating she had won 1.5 million dollars but that she had to pay $1550 in tax to claim the prize. Fortunately no personal information or money was exchanged.
In another case, a Township of Southgate resident was nearly a victim of a “service scam”. The resident, who had a water filtration system installed in his home, was contacted by an unknown male advising he could provide maintenance for the system for less than he is currently paying. The resident invited the suspect to his home but then after giving it some thought, called police for assistance. The resident cancelled his appointment after investigation revealed that the male in question was linked to a number of door to door sales businesses over the past few years in which several people, mostly seniors, were victims of fraud.
Remember to be wary of unsolicited calls from people offering a great deal “for a limited time only” and don’t give out any personal information to them.

(Chatsworth, ON) – Yesterday’s winter storm that passed through Grey County tested motorists’ readiness for safe winter driving.
High winds and blowing snow created pockets of zero visibility and hazardous driving conditions, resulting in many road closures throughout the area.
Grey County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to 16 motor vehicle collisions, abandoned vehicles and stranded motorist type calls between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 18th. There were no serious injuries reported.
Grey County OPP wish to remind motorists that when a road is declared closed for safety reasons; driving on it is against the law. Not only does it put you and your passengers at risk, it endangers those operating snowplows and emergency vehicles.
Grey County OPP also wish to remind motorists not to call police inquiring about road/weather information. Drivers are encouraged to call 5-1-1 for provincial highways, or the various individual municipal websites for details.
The OPP wish to remind motorists to adjust their driving habits to winter road conditions. The leading cause of multi-vehicle collisions and other collisions that occur during the winter months is poor driving, not poor driving conditions.
Adjusting your driving to the conditions is crucial when driving in deteriorated road/weather conditions.
Make it a habit of allowing extra time to travel to and from destinations during the winter months.
Make it a habit of using your full set of headlights every day during the winter months; daylight running lights are not as bright and do not engage your rear tail lights, making it difficult and at times impossible for drivers behind you to see your vehicle.
Stay alert, focus on the road and avoid sudden braking, accelerating or steering.
Never stop on the roadway. If possible, park your vehicle well off the roadway and stay in it until help arrives.
For more information about safe winter driving, go to:
Date: Tuesday, Nov. 25th
Time: 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Location: Annesley United Church, 82 Toronto Street South, Markdale
