Lock up your manure!

News May 17, 2017 by Jeff Tribe Norfolk News

Norfolk OPP is following up on a Radical Road, Woodhouse, manure theft reported Monday, May 15.

Police say a man in a van visited the property that day and the day before and removed manure. The owner confronted the man, who then left southbound on Port Ryerse Road.

The owner got the licence plate from the retreating ‘manure wagon’ and was able to supply it to police, who say they will be contacting its owner.

“If it doesn't belong to you, then don't touch it or remove it," said Norfolk OPP Const. Ed Sanchuk, a statement applying equally to ‘poo’ and more traditional targets of thievery. "The OPP would like to remind all residents about trespassing laws as well as potential charges of theft when any items are removed off another person's property without their permission.”

 

Construction tools sail away

Norfolk OPP are investigating the theft of $1,300 of power tools from a Schooner Drive, Port Dover address, reported Monday, May 15.

One or more thieves broke into a trailer at a building under construction and made off with the tools.

Don’t veer for deer

Norfolk OPP Const. Ed Sanchuk is reiterating a familiar warning for county drivers in the wake of a Monday evening collision along Nixon Road, Windham.

Police say a driver swerved to avoid at dear at about 8 p.m. and rolled the car in a ditch. Fortunately, the driver was not injured.

"If you suddenly have a deer in your path, we encourage drivers to stay in control, reduce as much speed as possible, and whatever you do, steer straight,” said Sanchuk. 

“Don't veer for the deer. By changing your direction quickly, you increase the risk of losing control, running off the roadway and rolling your vehicle. This increases the likelihood of sustaining greater damage to your vehicle and serious injury."
