Overnight Break and Enters
The Sarnia Police are investigating a number of overnight residential break ins.
Earlier this month, a suspect entered a home in the north end of the city in the middle of the night while the occupants slept. The owner had inadvertently left a front window open and the suspect cut the screen and climbed in the window. The thief went through some purses and wallets, stealing all the cash inside.
Then, early last Friday morning on August 16th, the suspect appears to have broken into two separate homes in the south end of the city.
In one house, the suspect gained entry in the middle of the night by cutting a small slit into a screen door and opening up the unlocked interior door. While the occupants slept, the suspect quietly entered the house and stole a purse which was later found in the Germain Park area.
At the second house, the suspect again cut a screen – but this time it was a kitchen window screen. Instead of entering this house, the industrious culprit made up an extended pole with a homemade hook on the end of it and used it to reach into the window, through the cut screen and hook onto a purse and pull it out the window. The suspect left the ‘purse-pole’ behind. Police seized the pole for examination.
If you know who made up the pole in the picture, or who broke into these homes, then you could actually make money off of their crime! Just get ahold of Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or at www.p3tips.com to become eligible for a cash reward if your information leads to an arrest… or contact Detective Constable ROVERS at 519-344-8861 ext 6159
This also serves as a bit of a warning not to leave ground floor windows and doors open or unlocked during the warm weather. And if you do hear someone breaking into your home, call 911 immediately. We don’t recommend that you confront a thief… leave that to the police.
The Sarnia Police Service continue to look for Robbery Suspect

A1 Security Crime of the Week
The Sarnia Police Service is investigating a theft of audio equipment that was taken from the patio of Paddy Flaherty’s early Saturday morning. Thieves made off an EV (Electro-Voice) SX300 trapezoidal speaker (60 pounds) and a large quantity of AV Cabling in a plaid bag.
The owner was in the process of loading the equipment into his vehicle at the end of a Friday night show when thieves helped themselves.
This audio equipment is used by the owner at local establishments as he is involved in the production of entertainment by local bands. The 300 watt Electro-Voice speaker looks like the type that a band would have on stage while performing. It is unique in that it has an “EV” emblem on the front of it – down at the bottom of the big woofer. Its trapezoidal shape makes it look skinnier at the back.
The plaid bag is unique too. It has long white carry straps and a zippered top and it contained about $1,000 worth of cables and microphones for an onstage show.
These are not your normal, run of the mill stereo components. This equipment is clearly higher quality and would not normally be found in your typical basement sound system.
If you see these items somewhere or you hear of someone who has recently acquired these items please contact Crime Stoppers at 519-332-TIPS (8477). Or call the Sarnia Police.
You will remain anonymous with Crime Stoppers and you could earn a cash reward if your tip leads to an arrest. Make the call – this was a cowardly act and the victim certainly didn’t deserve to lose the equipment he uses to make a living.
The Sarnia Police Service Criminal Investigations Division is currently investigating a break in and theft to a home in the 900 block of Exmouth Street.
This break in took place between 6:00 p.m. on Sunday July 7th and 6:00 p.m. Monday July 8th.
The culprits gained entry by prying open a basement window to the home. Once inside they removed keys to a gray 2009 Custom Harley Davidson motorcycle. They then went to the garage and subsequently took the motorcycle.
Also taken was a Honda 4stroke trolling motor, several fishing downriggers and a gas power washer.
