Bracebridge OPP responded to several complaints from patrons of a Bracebridge area campground last month after the owner prevented patrons from removing their property until disputed fees were paid.

Police say that during an unrelated investigation, the campground owner drove heavy machinery in a manner that endangered the safety of responding police officers and others nearby, and assaulted one of the responding officers.

Police conducted investigations of these matters and have charged 60 year-old Brian Coldin of Bracebridge, ON with:

  • 9 counts of Mischief
  • Theft Under $5000
  • Dangerous Operation
  • Assault

He will appear in a Bracebridge Court on October 20, 2020 to answer to his charges.
