A1 Security Crime of the Week

Posted on December 11th, 2019 | Posted in Crimes of the Week

As people intensify their efforts to buy the perfect gift for that special someone they will be attending the malls and other shopping centres in full force.

 

Unfortunately, certain other individuals will be attending those same areas to take advantage of those who have left items in their vehicles.

 

Some simple tips to avoid falling victim could be:

 

Keep anything of value or that may be tempting out of sight (in the trunk or covered up)

If someone witnesses a person who is looking through vehicles or attempting to see if vehicles are unlocked, please contact the police to have it checked out.

Finally, and most importantly, “LOCK YOUR VEHICLE”.

By keeping these simple points in mind, a lot of heart ache can be avoided.

 

Members of the Sarnia Police Service will be visiting parking lots and checking vehicles to ensure they are locked and that valuables are out of sight. A small brochure will be left on your windshield if the vehicle is checked to tell you how you did.

A1 Security Crime of the Week – Stolen Mini-Excavator

Posted on November 28th, 2019 | Posted in Crimes of the Week

Sometime overnight on Sunday, November 24, 2019 suspects hooked up to a tandem trailer on a vacant lot in The Rapids subdivision – just north of Michigan Ave, in Sarnia and drove away with the trailer and the CAT Mini – Excavator that was sitting on it. The CAT excavator is commonly known as a smaller ‘back-hoe’ type of machine typically used in small construction jobsites such as home building and landscaping.

This particular piece of machinery is valued at almost $50,000 and the trailer alone is worth $5,000. The culprits knew what they were looking for and came prepared, likely with a pickup truck to tow the trailer and excavator away.

The trailer is pictured in the accompanying photograph and shows tandem axles and ramps that fold down to drive the excavator off the rear of the trailer. These items belong to WICKS Construction and there was a large black and white WICKS sticker on the side of the excavator. It also has the model number “303.5” in white on the side of the cab. The cab is enclosed and the front windshield has a crack in it.

Theft of construction equipment is not uncommon; however the theft of such a large, valuable excavator like this is quite unique in this area. Often times the equipment is altered by the thieves to disguise its appearance and in many cases the equipment stays local and continues being used by the thieves or by whoever acquired it from the thief.

If you have seen one of these excavators mysteriously show up on a construction site or in someone’s yard or compound this week and if you suspect it may be the one in this photo, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or submit your tip online at www.p3tips.com or call the Sarnia Police at 519-344-8861

With Crime Stoppers, you remain anonymous and if your tip leads to the recovery of stolen property or the arrest of an individual, you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000. The owners of this excavator are very motivated to recover their property.

A1 Security Crime of the Week

ARRESTED—ARRESTED—ARRESTED—ARRESTED

The Sarnia Police Service have arrested these two fugitives – Dusty-Wade Robert RYAN – AGE 31 and Nicole SALISBURY – AGE 32

RYAN or SALISBURY had randomly approached their victims and told them a sob story about relative that is dying of cancer in another city or about a family member who has been in a serious car accident. The scammers then told the victim that they do not have a bank account but need to cash their cheques to be able to travel to see their ill relative. The criminals even offer them money for their troubles.

The cheques used by RYAN and SALISBURY have been stolen and were usually made out in someone else’s name. Once the victim cashed the cheque and withdrew the money to pay, it is too late. The victim is now on the hook for the money and usually ends up with an overdrawn account balance.

The Sarnia Police Service has continued their investigation into this matter and warrants have been requested for the arrest of Dusty-Wade Robert RYAN, 32 years of age of Sarnia, and Nicole Elaine SALISBURY, 31 years of age, also of Sarnia. Both have no fixed address.

Both of these parties were wanted for fraud under $5000 along with other charges.

If anyone has any information regarding Ryan or Salisbury they are asked to contact the Sarnia Police Service at 519-344-8861, extension 0.

Stolen Husqvarna Riding Lawnmower and Trailer

 

On the weekend of July 20-21, an orange Husqvarna riding lawnmower was stolen from a residence on Telfer Side Road – just south of London Line in Sarnia. Also stolen at the same time was the victim’s black homemade trailer designed for transporting the riding lawnmower. The trailer is unique because it has a boat winch on the front tongue and the wood lined bed of the trailer tips to the rear. There is a long steel mesh ramp on the back that folds up, similar to other landscaping trailers.

A red pickup truck was seen in the area and witnesses saw it hooking up to the trailer in the victim’s driveway at one point.

The stolen mower was similar to the one in the picture except that his front bumper was bent a bit. The trailer in the picture shows how unique this homemade, tipping trailer actually is.

If you have any information about where this trailer and mower are – or if you know who is responsible for this theft, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 with your information or log on to www.p3tips.com Both methods allow you to provide your tip anonymously.

You can make money from the misdeeds of others – but you have to MAKE THE CALL.
