Thieves Hit Habitat for Humanity Again

In the early morning hours of May 6th, 2021 an unknown person(s) broke into a storage area at the Habitat for Humanity Restore on London Line in Sarnia.  The thief made off with numerous assorted DeWalt power tools and accessories.

This is not the first time that Habitat for Humanity has been victimized by thieves.  ‘Habitat’ has taken measures to deter thefts and break ins and they’ll continue to increase security but this gets very costly for a non-profit organization.

In this latest incident, the suspects cut a hole in the fence, broke into one of Habitat’s handyman trailers and grabbed the DeWalt tools before fleeing on foot.

These DeWalt tools are the very tools that Habitat builders use to construct the homes that are sold to low-income, working families seeking safe and affordable housing. Through their zero-down, zero-interest mortgages and geared-to-income monthly payments, they offer their partner families a hand up…not a hand-out.

Any theft of tools from Habitat is a theft from an important community partner!

If you know who’s responsible or where the tools can be found, call Crime Stoppers!  It’s anonymous and you may be eligible for a cash reward!

Simply call 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) or submit your tip online through our website.

Sometime overnight last Saturday (May 8-9) thieves stole a wood carving of a bear from the front garden of a home in Brigden.  This carving stands about 4 feet tall and weighs over 200lbs.  As with any carving, this is a one of a kind item that has been created by a dedicated and talented carver.

Pictures of this bear carving have been circulated on social media and it can be found on the Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers website or Facebook page as well.

On Thursday, April 15, 2021 a lone male suspect broke into a kiosk in the Food Court area of Lambton Mall in Sarnia.

At about 7:30pm, not long after the mall had closed, this male was approached by a mall employee inside the mall near the Food Court.  The suspect had just broken into a Food Court kiosk where he had stolen some of their merchandise – including 45 “protein balls” that go into a protein-packed beverage.

When spotted by the employee, our suspect left the mall through the west exit near Sport Chek… and of course, the Lambton Mall and its individual merchants are full of security cameras!

So as a result, the Sarnia Police have video footage of every step this suspect took.  Check out this photo taken from the video.  It shows a slim guy wearing black shoes, grey pants, a black jacket with a hoodie underneath, a black ball cap with white lettering across the front – and naturally, he was wearing a face mask over his mouth.

If you recognize this suspect or if you know who committed this break in, call Crime Stoppers!  You’ll remain anonymous no matter how you give us the information… by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at or even download the P3 Tips app.

Lambton OPP are investigating the theft of a green John Deere gator – similar to the one shown in the picture.

This gator was stolen from a shed on the waste water treatment property in Petrolia sometime on or before April 6th.  These thieves also broke in to another spot on the property and stole a significant amount of fire department training gear.

These are the types of thefts that affect every resident of Petrolia & the Township of Enniskillen.  Fire training equipment is very valuable – it’s as much about the financial value as it is about the practical value of having the right equipment to train with.

The gator and the fire training equipment are not easy things to hide or to explain away.  Somebody out there knows the person who suddenly came into possession of these things.

Sometimes thieves ditch or hide this type of thing until the heats off.  Maybe you know where this stuff is… if so, you need to call Crime Stoppers as soon as you can.  Stay anonymous and maybe even get paid for your information.

Go online at or download the P3 App and submit your tip anonymously.  You can even upload pictures!  Or just call us at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) any time – day or night.

What do these three things have in common?? Well, on March 13th 2021 at about 1:30 a.m. suspects entered the property of a business on Scott Road in Sarnia. They broke into a new trailer and stole a welding machine, a compressor and a gas generator. These items are brand new and have never been used!
While they were there, the suspects stole 4 brand new tires that were purchased to be used on a side-by-side Kubota.
To add insult to injury, a couple of nights later, suspects returned to the business and stole a heavy blue tool cabinet with pullout drawers. This unit alone would take at least two or three people to carry…. It’s THAT heavy.
These stolen items are unique in that they are brand new.
The suspect vehicle involved appears to be a midsize pickup truck with a piece of body molding missing from the driver’s door and there had to be more than one person involved to carry or lift these stolen items.
If you know of anyone involved in this cowardly theft, or of anyone who has mysteriously shown up with similar items, unexplained, then call Crime Stoppers and leave an anonymous tip for the police to follow up.
Crime Stoppers can be reached day or night by calling 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) or online at
If your tip leads to an arrest or charges, you could be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
