Two North Glengarry OPP officers charged in breach of trust case

OPP officers arrested and charged two of their own Tuesday, for incidents that occurred between 2009 and 2014.

Police say that during the summer of 2012, they received information that an OPP officer was disclosing private information.

After an extensive investigation, led by Detective Inspector Paul Yelle, 44-year-old Provincial Constable Luanne MacDonald of the Alexandria satellite office of the SD&G Detachment faces a slew of charges: breach of trust by a public officer, obstruction of justice, voyeurism, distribution of voyeurism material, theft of telecommunications service and fraud.

She was released on a promise to appear in court on September 3. MacDonald is an 8-year member of the OPP and has been suspended with pay as per protocol.

Also charged in relation to this investigation is 41-year-old Constable John Bernard, from the Alexandria office. He faces two charges of breach of trust by a public officer.

Bernard is a 14-year-member of the force.

There is one known victim in the case who is not a minor.
