WINCHESTER – North Dundas Mayor Tony Fraser had to be freed of 250 pairs of handcuffs – and he was to the benefit of Seaway Valley Crime Stoppers.

Fraser was among the celebrities “arrested” for the organization’s Cuffed Up For A Cause on Saturday (Jan. 19) at the Winchester Foodland.

“This wonderful community graciously braved the cold to support this event,” said SD&G O.P.P. Const. Tylor Copeland, the Seaway Valley Crime Stoppers police coordinator.

In the end, the event raised $2,500 for the program, which gives cash rewards to anonymous tipsters who help solve a crime, which results in a conviction.

January is Crime Stoppers Month.
