Woman Calls Police for Help, Gets Arrested on Outstanding Warrant
A Guelph woman who called police for help and then lied about her identity to hide that she was wanted was arrested Thursday afternoon.
Just after 1 p.m. police were called to the VIA Rail station downtown after a woman claimed another person was refusing to return her belongings. Officers spoke to the caller, who provided a false name and date of birth.
Investigation revealed her true identity and it was determined she was wanted by police in another jurisdiction. A 48-year-old Guelph woman was arrested on the outstanding warrant and also charged with obstructing a police officer. She will appear in court March 19.
