TRADED TV RESULTS IN CHARGES

Heyden, Ont.,

Sault Ste Marie OPP have one man in custody after a large television was traded for a small debt.

Yesterday at about 1:00 p.m. OPP were called to Willa Drive in Heyden after a relative of the television owner noticed the 50 inch T.V. gone from the house. The investigation has revealed that the actual owner of the house, and television, is out of town for a while and allowed a third person to stay in the house to look after the place.

Apparently the accused owed a small amount of money to a nearby neighbour and so the accused gave the neighbour a 50-inch television for the small debt. The neighbour, thinking this was just too good of a deal, asked for a receipt and was given one.

When the transaction was discovered police attended and eventually arrested the accused. Thirty six year old Winston CAUSLEY has been charged with Theft Under $5000.00. He will appear in bail court this morning. The television is being returned to its proper home



40 yrs old - 8/26/2010

Ronald Masse has also been in trouble before. Another "winner"!!!
brittz 7/11/2013 2:24:56 PM Report

I hope these are the guys that have been doing the break-ins close to Pardee where the one scumbag lives. I live near enough to there to be scared but far enough to sort of feel safe. It would be nice to have some justice for the families in my area. Thank goodness for good neighbors. Everyone in this city needs to be vigilant, these dudes are everywhere, every age!
Kevin5069 7/11/2013 2:36:05 PM Report

These guys will be out on bail later today, and back in police beat next week.

That's how our courts keep business up for publicly paid defenders. Your tax dollars pay the lawyers and judges taht continue to slap the same people on the wrist and let them run loose in the city. Hope the next B&E they do is the one of the judge that keeps letting them go.

Two grown men!! Seriously.....
Tom_Bom 7/11/2013 2:53:30 PM Report

I can't fathom going into someone elses house to take their stuff. What would drive someone to do that? I've been so poor, dirt poor would be a compliment at the time. But when I was low I never stole from anyone.

I have a job now and am on the up and up again, but I'm just trying to make a point of, no matter how poor you are, no matter what you have going on in your life, what kind of mindset do you have to be in to forcefully enter someones home and take things?

This is something i'll never be able to relate to.

These are not bad people.They are from a bad background and misunderstood. Ask anybody at John (we can make up an excuse for anybody) Howard Society

THANK GOD WE HAVE HIS NAME THOUGH. NOW WE CAN PROTECT OUR FAMILIES.
Pakadeva 7/11/2013 10:33:58 PM Report

I THINK THESE TWO SHOULD have TO FIND JOBS AS PART OF THEIR PROBATION TERMS!!! Wise up probation officers, add the extra restrictions...out after 9 PM= breach of probation, violate them & toss them in the pen for a decade!
AndyCap 7/12/2013 7:52:33 AM Report

@soowat Yes they are bad people. They are hurting the innocent. Bad background or not they are old enough to make their own decisions and they decide on the poorest ones. Low lifes.
T.S.J 7/12/2013 11:13:46 AM Report

It is my personal opinion that these two should have been shot and killed by the home owner after gaining entrance to the residence. Nothing ends crime like a couple of 00 buck....
