On August 8, 2023, officers with Patrol Services charged 40-year-old Harry Challenger with dangerous operation.
On July 30, 2023, patrol officers observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed drive through a red light on Wallace Terrace at Korah Road.

The accused is charged with:
- Dangerous Operation

The accused was released on an appearance notice and is scheduled to appear in court on October 23, 2023.
