OPP Officers in Grey and Bruce Charged

Cape Croker | by Claire McCormack  

The charges are related to the aftermath of an ATV collision in Cape Croker back in 2011.

The OPP Professional Standards Bureau has charged two OPP officers with criminal offences in relation to an incident that occurred in April 2011.

The incident involved the aftermath when off-road vehicles collided in Cape Croker First Nation jurisdiction resulting in serious injuries to one person.

Information has since been provided to police that prompted an investigation into potential wrongdoing which began in May of 2017.

Charged with one count each of breach of trust and obstructing justice are Staff Sergeant Wayne Thompson, Detachment Commander Bruce Peninsula OPP, who has 29 years of service and, Staff Sergeant Kevin Muir, Operations Manager Grey County OPP, who has 17 years of service.

The incident occurred while both men were off-duty.

Both accused are scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Owen Sound on August 10, 2017.

Both have been suspended.

The OPP says it will not provide further comment to protect the integrity of the ongoing court process and any disciplinary matters that may ensue.
