With the stay-at-home-order the stakeholders within the Municipality of Port Hope made the decision to close the lands that run along the Ganaraska River. This would prevent people from fishing. On Friday night April 23, 2021 Port Hope Police had dedicated members patrolling the river to ensure compliance. Port Hope Police had no calls for service regarding fishing. The officers walked the river from Lake Ontario, north to the Fish Ladder several times. This would mean people are doing their part to help flatten the curve by staying home.
Break and Enter
In early March, 2021, Port Hope Police responded to a break and enter on Pine Street, Port Hope, ON. The building is currently under construction. A male party was seen on video gaining entry and stealing a Milwaukie saw valued at $500.00. Police identified the male on video as Nathan Drew, age 40 of Port Hope, Ontario. Drew was arrested on April 23, 2021 at around 6:20 pm. Drew was later released on an undertaking to appear in court to answer to the charge of break, enter a place - commit indicatable offence, and adult theft under.
