Meanwhile, four others were arrested on charges that warrants had not been issued for.

On Tuesday, the Muskoka Community Street Crime Unit observed a driver – who had been seen fleeing a RIDE check in Huntsville back in mid-October.

Police stopped the vehicle and arrested and charged 44-year-old Richard Robertson with dangerous operation of a vehicle and failing to comply with a release order.

Robertson will be in court on December 16th.

Then on Thursday, officers arrested a Gravenhurst woman on an outstanding warrant, as well as charges stemming from stealing a car on October 19th.
