In a press release, Perth County OPP say that just before 12:30 p.m. on July 10, officers stopped a truck pulling a trailer after it pulled into a business on Mitchell Rd. S. in Listowel.

The driver, 35-year-old Joshua Crawford of Howick Township, was arrested and charged with:
- public mischief;
- driving while under suspension; and,
- operate a motor vehicle without insurance.
Crawford is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Stratford at a later date to answer to the charges.
