West Grey Police report break-in, thefts the week to Nov 12

suspected poppy box thieves

Suspects to Identify - Theft of Poppy On November 7, 2020 Tim Horton’s staff alerted police that on the evening of November 5, 2020  two females entered Tim Horton’s and one of them stole the poppy donation box along with the poppies.  Suspect is described as a heavy set female with medium length auburn hair approximately thirty to forty years old.  The female accompanying her had long dark hair and a medium build.  She was wearing a grey scarf, grey sweater and jeans. She is suspected to be between thirty five and forty five years old.  The suspects were in a four  door grey automobile thought to possibly be a Honda Civic.  If you have information about this crime contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or West Grey Police at 519-371-6911.

On November 9, 2020, West Grey Police officers were advised that a break in occurred to storage containers on Grey Road 3. A large quantity of hand tools and several generators were stolen. Anyone with information about this crime are asked to contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or West Grey Police at 519-371-6911.

On November 6, 2020, a resident of Durham reported that groceries were stolen from her vehicle while she was parked outside a local business. This incident and the motor vehicle theft from Tim Horton’s last week highlight the need to lock your vehicle doors even when you are only planning to be out of the vehicle for a short time.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
