CORNWALL, Ontario – Two Kashechewan residents seeking shelter from flood-ravaged Northern Ontario in Cornwall’s Nav Centre have been arrested for minor crimes.

Cornwall police responded to a disturbance call at the Nav Centre early Wednesday morning.

The report indicates that police located an intoxicated man and took him into custody.

Kashechewan resident Joshua Wynne, 33, was arrested on May 28 and charged with breaching his recognizance for having consumed alcohol.

Wynne was held for a bail hearing.

The first Kashechewan resident to have a run-in with local law enforcement was Beatrice Stephen, 35.

The 35-year-old was arrested on May 17 and charged with theft under $5,000 and breach of recognizance for failing to keep the peace.

Police allege the woman attended a Brookdale Avenue store, concealed a number of items, and then made her way past the cashiers making no attempts to pay for them. She was stopped by the loss prevention officer and police were contacted.

Stephen was held for a bail hearing.
