Also on Wednesday, someone broke into a shed on Stanley Avenue in Chatham. Police say it happened in the afternoon and someone cut off a padlock and stole a chainsaw and a bicycle, worth a combined $500.

If you have information, contact Const. Greg Dilliott at 519-436-6600, ext. 87278 or Crime Stoppers.

Police also warn people to lock their cars, as the warm weather means more punks are out and about rifling through vehicles.
