Two more arrests: Trevor (Tre) Smith and Mark Beauchamp.

The other agent, Mark Beauchamp, was arrested at the OSPCA’s Newmarket headquarters yesterday morning, on one charge of obstructing a peace officer. Mr. Beauchamp allegedly tipped the THS off that inspectors were on their way in June, when the OSPCA began their investigation of the troubled charity with a cage-by-cage inspection of its River Street facility.

“… The charges laid against our own Ontario SPCA agent indicate that we are serious about holding all investigators to the highest standard of conduct, not just those at the THS,” Kate MacDonald, chief executive officer of the OSPCA, said in a statement released yesterday.

Staff inside the shelter told The Globe and Mail that the tip led to a massive cleaning effort in advance of the inspection and that they were then instructed by THS management to hide animals from the OSPCA.
