Friday police briefs


Chatham B&E

Not every criminal is a mastermind. For example, breaking into a banquet hall in the middle of the COVID-19 is a head scratcher. Such facilities have not been operating at full capacity for many months.

Yet, sometime late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, someone forced their way into Club Lentinas on National Road, causing about $4,000 damage. Once inside, the suspect(s) stole two Elavon debit machines, a Lenovo desktop tower and black printer/scanner.

Total value of the theft has been estimated at $1,000.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Rod Louzon at or 519-436-6600 ext. 87236. Anonymous callers may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and may be eligible for a cash reward.
