Stolen Cargo Trailer
Sometime overnight on July 29-30th, a cargo trailer belonging to Community Living Sarnia-Lambton was stolen from behind their administration building on Exmouth St near Oxford St in Sarnia. The lock on the trailer hitch assembly was cut off and the licence plate was later recovered on East St.
The trailer is seen in this picture being loaded with empty beer cans and bottles as part of a ‘Bottle Drive Fundraiser’ to purchase an Accessible Van for people they support. In fact, the trailer was almost half full at the time it was stolen. The Community Living logo is seen on the side of the trailer but it has likely been removed or covered up by now.
This is a white 5 ft x 10 ft cargo trailer with rear doors and a door on the passenger side. With a value of over $4,000, it will take a lot more fundraising to replace it.
Community Living is a non-governmental organization dedicated to enriching the lives of people with an intellectual and/or other disability and their families and they rely heavily on the generosity of others through fundraising and donations. Their role in our community has far reaching effects throughout Sarnia Lambton.
This isn’t just a theft of a trailer from a local business, it’s a theft from our entire community.
If you have any information about where this trailer is or who is responsible for this disgraceful act, please contact Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) or the Sarnia Police directly.
Somebody knows something about this. Please ‘share’ or ‘like’ Crime Stoppers posts and tweets to get the word out far and wide.
A big “thank you” goes out to Wayne Skinner and Industratech for lending Community Living a replacement trailer to continue the Bottle Drive Fundraiser.
Sarnia-Lambton Crime Stoppers is reaching out for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects responsible for a break and enter that occurred on Thursday, August 2nd, 2018.
At about 2:20 in the afternoon an unknown male removed a screen from a ground level window of a home in the Mayfair Drive / Queen Elizabeth II Public School area of Sarnia. Once inside, the suspect stole a woman’s purse before running out the door and fleeing into the Queen Elizabeth II schoolyard. A witness describes him as being tall, darker skin tone, dark pants, green sweater and a dark backpack.
He then jumped on his bicycle, met up with another male and they both took off on separate bikes. The second guy was wearing shorts and a neon green shirt. He was on a lighter coloured bike.
This break-in happened in the middle of the afternoon and witnesses got a good look at the suspects. Somebody out there knows who these two suspects are.

Help combat the abuse of prescription drugs in our community.
Diversion occurs in a variety of ways. Its abuse is often overlooked by the thinking that if a doctor prescribes the drug, and a pharmacist dispenses the medication, it can’t be abused. Trying to understand that the top prescription drugs of abuse are every bit as addictive, abused and valuable as illicit drugs is sometimes difficult to comprehend.
Most pharmaceuticals abused are diverted by doctor shopping, forged prescriptions and theft. To reduce the occurrence of pharmaceutical diversion by doctor shopping and prescription fraud, almost all provinces have established prescription monitoring programs that facilitate the collection, analysis, and reporting of information regarding pharmaceutical drug prescriptions.
Controlled prescription drug classes which are commonly diverted include:
• Benzodiazepines – diazepam, temazepam, clonazepam, sedatives
• Opioids – fentanyl, morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone and codeine
• Stimulants – amphetamine, methylphenidate, and modafinil – prescribed to treat ADHD and narcolepsy
• Prescription sleep medications- including zolpidem (Ambien), Eszopiclone (Lunesta)
It’s up to all of us to take action against medicine abuse. The best place to start is within your own home by ensuring that you’re aware of the medication in your home as well as by talking with your kids and family about the dangers of medicine abuse.
