SD&G – Police departments in SD&G say Halloween was uneventful and the weather – namely buckets of rain and blustery wind – may have played a factor in keeping wrongdoers at bay.

Cornwall Police Service spokesman Stephanie MacRae says they were not called to investigate any mischief or prank-related calls for service between Thursday night and Friday morning.

“The rain may have assisted,” MacRae speculated.

As for the United Counties, “for the most part, quite uneventful,” O.P.P. Const. Jim Blanchette told Cornwall Newswatch.

But there was some vandalism done in the village of Williamsburg in South Dundas where a couple of signs and buildings were spray painted.

There are no suspects or charges at this point.

“(Overall), a pretty quiet night,” Blanchette added.
