CEMETERY IS NOT OKAY: OPP

On February 22, at approximately 9:36 p.m., officers from the Caledon Detachment of the OPP responded to a report of a Jeep stuck in a cemetery.

“Allegedly, the vehicle was driving over graves prior to being stuck. It was confirmed that the vehicle had not damaged any grave stones,” say Police. “The Jeep was found by officers a distance away from the roadway. Due to the location of the vehicle and the removal equipment available at the time, it could not be removed until the following morning.”

As a result of the police investigation, the driver, a 32-year-old from Brampton, now faces two charges under the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act:

Disturbing a burial site; and

Interfering with cemetery

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Caledon East Provincial Court to answer to the charges.

The charges have not been proven.

“If you feel the need to test your 4×4 capabilities, Caledon OPP reminds everyone to be aware of your surroundings and stay off public or private lands, which do not belong to you. Not only can it be an offence, but hidden dangers could exist and/or property could be damaged or destroyed.”
