KITCHENER -- A 14-year veteran of the Ontario Provincial Police has been suspended from duty after being charged with four criminal offences, including breach of trust.
The OPP has not shared any details of the circumstances that led to its investigation, which was launched earlier this month.
But the force says Sukhvinder Singh Toor was arrested on Wednesday by members of its professional standards bureau.
He's been charged with breach of trust, attempting to obstruct justice, as well as intercepting and disclosing a private communication.
Police say Toor is a long-time member of the force's Wellington County detachment.
He's due to appear in court next month.
