WOODSTOCK - The holiday season has been bringing out the worst in some people in the city of Woodstock.
On Friday, December 16th the Woodstock Police responded to a complaint from Zehrs on Dundas after someone was spotted taking toys from the donation bin. Although the store does have video surveillance, a description of the suspect has not been released.
On Monday, December 19th around 9 a.m. a 20 year old man wearing a white and blue bandana style scarf and a green army jacket stole over $300 of merchandise from the Shoppers Drug Mart in the east end. The man made his getaway in a burnt orange coloured hatchback.
Business owners are reminded to make sure employees are trained to recognize and report shoplifters, to keep expensive items in locked cases, and to eliminate blind spots by using mirrors and cameras.
A home of Diefenbaker Drive was broken into sometime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m on Friday, December 16th. $9,500 dollars worth of jewellery was taken and the canine unit was called in to assist.
Home owners are reminded to lock all doors, even if the house will only be empty for a short amount of time and to keep valuables out of plain sight. Police also ask everyone to keep their eyes peeled and report any suspicious activity.
During this season of giving, scammers pretending to represent the Legion and the Police Association are making phone calls. Woodstock Police remind everyone to be cautious when receiving these calls and to carefully guard your personal information.
And the Festive RIDE season is well underway. One driver was pulled over during the weekend and provided a breath sample. No charges were laid.
