MISSISSIPPI MILLS, ON – On August 24 at approximately 2:50 pm, Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police received a report of a suspicious person in the town of Almonte.

A female dog owner was walking her dog in the area of Main Street and Martin Street North around 1:30 pm on August 24, 2013 when she stopped to play ball with her dog on a vacant lot.  The owner threw the ball and the dog chased it to the edge of the lot where a male was standing.  The male was wearing rubber gloves and had a piece of rope.  The owner felt the man was trying to take her dog.  The man advised that he thought the dog was a stray and was going to take it animal control.  The male left in a burgundy red mini-van with a roof rack.  The owner thought this behaviour was odd and later called police.

The male is described as:

  • Early 60’s, approximately 6 feet with grey hair.  He was wearing long pants, rubber boots and rubber gloves.

If anyone has any information they are asked to contact the Lanark County OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
