Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers is reminding listeners and followers to take ‘Back to School Safety’ seriously. We sometimes need to be reminded that we all have a responsibility to keep our students safe – whether it’s on the street, in the school or even at home during online learning.
Drivers are reminded to slow down and stay off mobile devices while driving. There will be many more kids and students walking and riding bikes on our streets beginning next week. Leave yourself lots of time to get where you’re going and be aware of school zones.
Students are reminded to stay alert while walking or cycling and they too should put away their devices when they should be paying attention to traffic and other hazards. Listening to music instead of traffic can put you in grave danger.
Parents are reminded that online safety is a major concern for students who are learning online at home. It’s so easy to click on the wrong link or give out personal information to the wrong person or website. Make sure your ‘at home students’ are aware of unseen online dangers.
Stay safe folks!!

Today marks the 33rd anniversary of the brutal and unsolved homicide of Morag Davies. Ms. Davies was last seen by a friend on August 23rd and she was found murdered in her Retlaw Drive home in Sarnia’s north end on August 25th, 1988. Her body was located in the bedroom covered with multiple stab wounds. The murder weapon has never been found.
Someone, somewhere, knows something about this unsolved crime. There is a loving family and a community that seeks answers and resolution to this murder. A family never forgets the loss of a loved one, regardless of how much time passes. This was a very disturbing case and Morag’s killer needs to be identified and found.
Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers would like to hear from you, no matter how major or minor your information might be. You will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward. Please help Crime Stoppers get justice for Morag Davies’ family.

On August 19th 2021, just after midnight, unknown persons removed copper cables from a hyrdo transformer at Eastland Plaza on Indian Road. This triggered a 12 hour power outage at the plaza creating great frustration for the business operators.
This was a very dangerous and risky crime, which amounted to about $10,000 in damage and repairs. Sarnia Fire attended the area in response to an electrical fire. Smoke was observed. Police attended as well and are now investigating the matter.
These bold thieves cut through a razor fence surrounding two separate hydro compounds at the rear of the plaza. The culprits proceeded to steal the wire from the hydro transformers. A potentially deadly activity with very little reward and costly for all affected.
Someone out there is bragging about how “brave and daring” they were committing this mindless, reckless and dangerous act. Do you know who they are? If you do, do not hesitate to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or go on line at www.p3tips.com. You will remain anonymous and could be eligible to receive a cash reward.

This sports car was being purchased from out of town and had to be serviced before the new owner could take possession of it. Sometime during the night, the vehicle was stolen.
This corvette is two toned with darker grey on the bottom half and a lighter grey or silver on the top half. It has what appears to be “5 spoke aluminum rims” and is in very good shape.
Lambton OPP and Crime Stoppers would like to hear from you if you’ve seen this vehicle or if you know who is responsible for this theft.
To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers anytime at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit your tip online at www.p3tips.com. You could earn a cash reward of up to $2,000 for your tip.
August 6, 2021 – DAMAGE TO LIFE RING AT BLUEWATER BRIDGE
Sometime last weekend, someone decided to cause severe damage to a life saving ring under the Bluewater Bridge. This is not your average damage to public property! This is truly life-threatening property damage!
Swimming in the St Clair River in this area is a very popular activity during the summer months and if you think about it, boating, kayaking, parasailing and other water activities start early in the spring and carry on into the fall. Any one of these activities could potentially require one of these life rings to rescue the participants. Damaging, stealing, or otherwise disabling these devices can have tragic consequences.
The life rings are provided and maintained by the good folks at Pt Edward Fire & Rescue, and they are not cheap! Over $1,000.00 to replace each one!
Lambton OPP would like you to be aware that vandals have been very active in this area lately and they are targeting the washrooms, the splash pad and pump house and other nearby properties.
If you have any information about this vandalism or property damage, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) night or day. You will stay anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000

Cowardly Hit and Run
On Saturday, July 24, 2021 at approximately 4:45 AM, there was a collision in the 800 block of Devine Street. Sarnia Police were called to the scene where they observed a utility pole snapped in half. Evidence and a witness at the scene indicated that after the vehicle struck the pole, it nearly missed a fire hydrant but managed to drive across the front yard of a home damaging shrubbery and a fence. It was last observed travelling from Devine onto southbound Indian Road.
Investigators were able to follow a trail of motor vehicle debris and fluid left by the damaged automobile and located it a short time later on Norfolk Avenue. There was no one occupying the car at the time. It is described as a red, 2012 Chrysler 200.
Sarnia Police are looking to identify the driver of the vehicle at the time of the collision. Crews were called out to replace the pole, the private home sustained property damage and the car is probably a “write-off”. There is a slim chance that someone was not injured while inside this vehicle when the crash occurred. Whiplash or cuts and bruises at minimum.
Did you hear this vehicle limping into your neighbourhood around 5AM Saturday morning? If you have any information that could help identify the cowardly driver of this car and who is responsible for the mess and expense caused by this senseless crash, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (222-8477) or go on line at p3tips.com. You will not have to identify yourself and you could be receive a cash reward.
Do the right thing here. Someone knows something!
Five Impaired… Five Too Many
Lambton County OPP and the Sarnia Police arrested and charged a total of 5 people with various Impaired Driving offences within just over a 48 hour period this past weekend. Sarnia Police arrested two drivers on Sunday July 18 and the OPP arrested two on Friday, July 16th and one on Sunday, July 18. This is reckless, thoughtless, irresponsible and avoidable behaviour within today’s society.
Although none these occurrences involved any injuries, there were children in one of the vehicles being operated by one of the impaired drivers. Crashes involving drunk or impaired drivers are one of the leading causes of death in Canada today, according to MADD. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving)
Plan ahead if you are attending a function where you plan on having a few cocktails. Uber, taxi cabs, a designated driver, calling a friend or staying the night are ways to avoid an encounter with a roadside screening device or a visit to the police station to provide a breath sample.
If you don’t plan ahead for that, plan ahead for a court date and possibility of the loss of your driver’s licence. Plan on the embarrassment in front of your family, friends and co-workers. Plan on forking over a few hundred dollars for someone to defend you on the charges if you choose to go that route. Probably not as cheap an adventure as the day you decided to have those cocktails!
Don’t drink and drive. Think of your safety and the safety of others on the road.
If you see a drunk driver, call 911. If you know of a person who makes a habit of this practice, you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (1-800-222-8477) or go on line at www.p3tips.com
