OTONABEE-SOUTH MONAGHAN TOWNSHIP — A farmer’s late-night trespassing complaint led to the arrest of two teenaged motorists allegedly seen driving on his crop fields. One of the accused was on probation and not allowed behind the wheel.
Peterborough OPP responded around 11 p.m. to the Oct. 29 report of three vehicles in fields at Dillon Road. Two of the vehicles fled when officers found them on Keene Road — one of which police managed to stop on Highway 7.
The operators of the other vehicles were consequently identified.

The 16-year-old is charged with:
