On June 9, around 3:20 AM, Sarnia Police attended Chester Street on a report of a possible break and enter in progress. Police attended and spoke to an employee who indicated he observed a gold coloured van inside the compound removing steel. He yelled at the suspects, who left the property. Attempts to locate the vehicle were unsuccessful. The investigation is ongoing.
On the morning of June 9, Sarnia Police received a complaint from a mobile “chip truck” owner reporting that the pad locks had been cut and the business entered. The truck had been parked in the 1100 block of Confederation. The culprits cut themselves in the process as blood was found at the scene. Cash was removed from inside. The Sarnia Police Forensic Identification Branch attended to process and collect evidence.
That same morning, police attended the 200 block of London Road to take a report of two bikes taken from a garage. The bikes are valued at about $1650.00. It is unknown how the thieves entered the garage as there was no apparent damage. They likely fled northbound onto Durand. The bikes are described as both men’s 60″; one being a Sirrus Sport and the second a Trek 1700. No colour of the bikes was provided.
Police went to the 700 block of Campbell later to take a report of a break and enter to a fenced compound. It is unknown if anything was taken but it was obvious several vehicles had been entered. A set of bolt cutters were found lying on the grass near the point of entry. Someone cut a hole in the fence. The bolt cutters were seized by police.
On June 10, around 9:45 AM, police were flagged down by a man in the 800 block of Colborne. A window had been smashed on the business and a rock could be seen lying on the floor inside. Police searched inside but found no one. Cash had been removed from a desk. This break and enter probably occurred sometime after June 8 at 5 PM.
