A former OPP officer has been arrested for the third time in less than two months and now faces over 40 drug and sexual offence charges.
53 year old John Paul Stone was arrested at a home on 11th Avenue in Hanover on Tuesday and charged with two counts of breach of a court order.
Hanover Police were checking on Stone and found him using an electronic device.
