On April 6, 2021, a report was made regarding the rifle being stolen from the soldier located at Veterans Park upon the war memorial cenotaph.
Over the weekend further information has been received from the public, in the way of photos, and it has been determined that the rifle was actually stolen approximately one and a half years ago, not as initially reported. It is unfortunate that the initial information was incorrect but none the less the replica firearm was definitely stolen from the soldier.
Police are still attempting to determine a suspect and retrieve the replica rifle. If anyone does have any information they are please asked to contact Detective Jeff Rovers at 519-344-8861, extension 6159, or Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
On a very positive note, members of the community have stepped up and donated the funds required to replace the rifle that was stolen from “Tommy” the Soldier.
