Guelph Police media officer Const. Mike Gatto emailed local media outlets Wednesday afternoon to advise that voyeurism suspect Aaron Larkin is no relation to Guelph Police Chief Bryan Larkin.
Gatto's email said the police service had received several inquiries about the matter from reporters.
The police service had earlier in the day issued a media release about the Aaron Larkin case. But in that release it asserted that a publication ban issued by the court prohibited the identification of the suspect.
In fact, the terms of the publication ban issued did not prevent such disclosure and the police service later issued a follow-up statement making public the name of the suspect.
