Just before 2 a.m., July 9th, Grey County OPP responded to a report of a break and enter in progress at a residence on St. Vincent Street in Meaford. The suspect forcibly entered the residence, causing damage to the door, then proceeded to the second floor of the house where he had fallen asleep. Police attended and arrested the male, who was known to the home-owner. Alcohol was a factor. A 33-year-old male of Meaford, was charged with Mischief Under $5000 and fail to comply with a probation order. He was held for a bail hearing July 9th and will next appear in court July 13th. Several happier notes: a nine-year Cambridge girl who had gone missing in Huron County was located yesterday and Collingwood and The Blue Mountains OPP charity BBQ and car wash last week collected just over $900, which will go towards Special Olympics Canada.

In baseball action with no games played last night… Chris Sale will become the first pitcher to make consecutive All-Star starts representing different teams as the Boston Red Sox ace will start tonight’s game for the American League, and Washington’s Max Scherzer will open for the host National League. It’s the first game since 2002 where the outcome does not determine home-field advantage for the World Series. Game time tonight, 8 o’clock.
