Ivestigators with the York Regional Police #1 District Criminal Investigations Bureau have laid charges against two teens and are seeking a third suspect following an armed robbery in the Town of Newmarket.

On Wednesday, September 7, 2016, police attended Pickering Crescent following a robbery. A 15-year-old female left a high school with two male friends and entered a wooded area nearby. She was approached by two female teens and an adult male suspect who were known to her. The male suspect pulled out a knife and a BB rifle and told the victim they were taking her bag.

The high school nearby was placed under a hold and secure at the time as a precaution while officers searched for the suspects. The two female suspects have been arrested and charged. The remaining suspect is a 20-year-old man of no fixed address. Police are urging him to consult with a lawyer and turn himself in.

Charged:

  • A 15-year-old female of no fixed address

Charges:

  • Robbery using a Firearm
  • Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose

 

  • A 16-year-old female from Newmarket

Media Release. Mosquito traps test positive for West Nile Virus in York Region






Friday, August 5, 2016
  

Mosquito traps test positive for West Nile Virus in York Region


Newmarket - The Regional Municipality of York is advising that two mosquito traps have tested positive for West Nile Virus (WNV) in the City of Markham; one at the intersection of 14th Avenue and Kennedy Road and the other at the intersection of Highway 7 and Warden Avenue.
 
“Residents can take simple steps to reduce the risk of West Nile virus and exposure to mosquitos,” said Dr. Karim Kurji, York Region’s Medical Officer of Health. “Cover up when heading outside, especially during dusk and dawn and eliminate standing water around your property to reduce mosquito breeding.”
 
To protect yourself and family from WNV, follow these simple steps:
 
Get rid of mosquito-friendly areas at home

  • Clean up stagnant water found in bird baths, flower pots, swimming pool covers, clogged gutters and eavestroughs
  • Ensure the window screens on your home are tight-fitting and in good repair

 
Cover up while outside

  • Wear protective clothing, including socks, long-sleeved shirts and jackets
  • Wear lighter colours if possible as mosquitoes are attracted to darker colours
  • Use insect repellent – check label directions for use
  • Minimize outdoor activities at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active

 
As part of York Region’s 2016 West Nile virus (WNV) Control Plan, York Region Public Health larvicides catch basins to interrupt mosquito breeding, educates residents on self-protection, investigates human cases and conducts surveillance.
 
York Region treats catch basins along Regional and municipal roads and other stagnant public water sources, including roadside ditches. Private backyard catch basins are treated upon request.
 
Visit the Fight the Bite video to learn more about symptoms and how to protect yourself from West Nile Virus.
To review the current status of WNV in Ontario, visit: publichealthontario.ca/en/DataAndAnalytics/Pages/WNV.aspx
 
For more information on this or any other public-health related topic, please contact York Region Health Connection at 1-800-361-5653 or TTY 1-866-252-9933 or visit york.ca/westnile
