Hit and Run in Point Edward
On April 27, 2021, at approximately 9:50 AM, a gray, four door Volkswagen Passat struck two riding lawn mowers near the intersection of Front and Lite Street in the Village of Point Edward.
These mowers were being operated at the time. Luckily, no one was hurt and there was only minor damage to the vehicles. This could have been a tragic incident. The mowers were owned by the Village.
Witnesses describe the driver of the Volkswagen as a male in his mid 30’s. He appeared to be the only one in the vehicle. The Volkswagen left the crash scene and continued on, eventually turning onto Kendall Street.

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.
We’re not going into all the “bear” puns and jokes about this theft. That’s been done online all week. Now is the time to get serious and call Crime Stoppers if you’ve seen this bear carving show up somewhere or if you know who’s responsible for this theft.
‘A1 Security’ sponsors this Crime of the Week segment each week with the hopes of solving crimes that affect our local community. Although some featured crimes involve drugs, damaged or stolen, high-priced items, this theft involves an item that has special meaning & value to its owner.
This is not the first brazen theft from a front yard and it won’t be the last.
If you’ve been thinking of getting a camera for your front door area, now might be the time. And in Sarnia, you can register your camera with the Sarnia Police Service so that investigators know who might have video evidence of these types of crimes when they occur.
Simply call 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) or go to the Crime Stoppers website at www.sarnialambtoncrimestoppers.org to leave a tip online. It’s easy. It’s anonymous. And it could make you eligible for a handsome cash reward.
