Officers didn’t have to go far to make an arrest after a glass door at the downtown police station was smashed late Tuesday.

Approximately 11:30 p.m., a female attended the police station and attempted to open the sliding glass doors, which were locked. She kicked the doors several times before removing a hammer from her backpack and using it to strike the door frame and automatic door opener, damaging both. She then used the hammer to smash the glass door.

This was heard by officers working inside. The female was immediately arrested.

A 40-year-old Guelph female is charged with mischief under $5,000, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and breach of probation. She was held for a bail hearing Wednesday.
