Shelburne Police seeking assistance to ID theft suspect

January 2, 2020   ·   0 Comments

Back on Dec. 15, a rear passenger of a newer model Black Mazda 3 Hatchback pumped gas at a Shelburne gas station.  The suspect then entered the gas station’s store, selected a few items to purchase, but ended up leaving without the selected items, and without paying for the fuel.

The suspect is described as a white male, with short black hair, and black facial hair.  The male appears to be in his 20’s.  He was wearing a black jacket over a red and black flannel shirt and light brown shoes.  There were three other occupants in the vehicle; however they stayed in the vehicle the whole time.

Shelburne Police is appealing to the public to assist in identifying the suspects in these stills taken from security camera footage. If anyone can identify the suspect, or has any information in relation to this case or any other matter, they are encouraged to contact the Shelburne Police Service at 519-925-3312 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestopperssdm.com.

First snowmobile fatality, 

OPP issues warning to public

With mild temperatures forecast for many parts of the province into the holidays, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) are warning snowmobilers to stay off closed OFSC trails. The OPP is also urging riders to stay off frozen waterways as they too remain unsafe.        

The OPP responded to its first snowmobile fatality of the season earlier this month after a man lost control of his snowmobile. The tragic death is the latest reminder that snowmobiling comes with an unpredictable environment and unique set of risks.

Excessive speed, driving too fast for the conditions losing control and alcohol are among the top contributing factors in OPP-investigated snowmobile fatalities every season.

Snowmobilers are reminded to regularly check the OFSC Inter! active Trail Guide for real-time trail availability information over the holidays and throughout the season. OFSC prescribed trails are subject to laws governed under the Ontario Motorized Snow Vehicles Act and enforced by police throughout the province.

The OPP remains committed to saving lives on Ontario highways, waterways and trails.

The OFSC wants to remind snowmobilers to Go Safe when they Go Snowmobiling Ontario.
