Two arrested in Dungannon incident

By Josh Howald

A 29-year-old Perth County man went on the run for four days, but turned himself in at the Huron OPP Detachment.

The man walked into the Huron County OPP Detachment and turned himself in early Thursday morning. He had been wanted in relation to a weapons-related incident that took place Sept. 28 on River Mill Line.

He becomes the second to be charged in regards to this incident, which took place near Dungannon. Police said last week that the owner of a side-by-side utility vehicle (UTV) had the machine stolen, and learned it was being stored at a River Mill Line property. With that information, the owner and a friend went to the property with the intention of recovering the UTV. However, they were met with resistance and a confrontation ensued. Ultimately, the men retreated from the property. As they were driving off, a 29-year-old man fired a shot from a rifle in the direction of the vehicle.
