Robbery at Local Convenience Requiring the Public’s Assistance

 

Broadcast time: 10:55 am

Date: April 24, 2015

 

The Sarnia Police Service is again seeking the assistance of the citizens of Sarnia in regards to a robbery that occurred on April 24, 2015.

At approximately 1:20 am a lone male entered The Mac’s Milk located at 299 Confederation St. in the City of Sarnia. The male wore black pants, white running shoes, and a greenish-grey hoodie with red and beige lettering (including the letter’s “R” and “L” on the front”) with the hood-up and a possible dark cap underneath. The thief also wore a black mask pulled up to his eye level along with black gloves.

The suspect entered the store from the west side parking lot and left on foot to the north east. While in the store the clerk was told to open the till at which point the suspect proceeded to place the money from the till into a white plastic bag along with packages of cigarettes.

Fortunately, the store had video surveillance and we are asking the people of Sarnia to assist their Sarnia Police Service with identifying the suspect by attending the following link:

Also, on February 13, 2015 at approximately 11:00 pm, the same Mac’s Milk was also robbed. It is believed that it may be the same suspect involved. The suspect was described to be over 6 feet tall, wearing a light grey sweater, a black mask, light blue jeans, and black boots. The suspect was also wearing light blue surgical gloves. This time a black bag was used to collect the money. Again the suspect left eastbound from the store.

No weapons were observed in either robbery.

Prescription Drug Drop Off Day

 

Broadcast time: 12:20 p.m.

Date: April 21, 2015

 

 

Sarnia Police Service is participating in a province-wide public safety initiative to encourage Ontario residents to dispose of old and unused prescription medication in a secure and environmentally-friendly manner. Police in communities across Ontario recognize prescription drug abuse can lead to increases in a wide spectrum of violent acts, property crimes and accidental poisonings. We support this excellent initiative as another way to reduce this threat to public safety in a secure manner.

Sarnia Police Service will be hosting a collection site on Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at 555 North Christina Street, which is Sarnia Police headquarters. The drop off time will be between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM. Citizens wishing to dispose of outdated, unused and unwanted prescription drugs may do so anonymously at Sarnia Police Headquarters without having to get out of their vehicles. The Sarnia Police command post will be on site in the front parking lot with uniformed officers present to collect the drugs. Drivers are asked to enter the parking lot using the Christina Street entrance.

This is the third year the Sarnia Police Service has participated in this campaign. Over the last two campaigns members of the service collected 37 pounds of medications.

Prescriptions Drug Drop-off Day is proudly supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP).
