Over $6,000 worth of copper piping and sheet metal were taken during a break-in at the Norfolk Nature Conservancy in South Walsingham.
Unknowns gained entrance to the property sometime between Tuesday, December 3 and Tuesday, December 10, 2013, entering the residence first, and removing copper piping from the basement. Subsequently, unknowns entered an outbuilding and removed a large quantity of sheet metal.
Norfolk OPP, which is investigating the occurrence, estimates the theft at $6,100. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information on the incident is invited to call 1-888-310-1122.
Friday the 13th traffic ‘heads up’
Norfolk OPP reminds the public that today’s Friday the 13th celebration in Port Dover will translate into increased traffic, particularly of the two-wheeled variety.
OPP ask the public to be patient through an anticipated increase in motorcycle traffic. The motoring public are being asked to be extra vigilant and to take more time when making manoeuvres such as signalling turns and checking blind spots.
OPP also want to take this opportunity to remind all motorcyclists to be extremely vigilant if they are operating their motorcycle on slick or snow-covered roadways.
There will be a highly visible police presence to ensure the safety of those in attendance and to assist with traffic related issues.
“We want everyone to act in a safe and responsible manner, and to remember that safety does not take a holiday,” said Staff Sergeant Rob Scott, Operations Manager of the Norfolk County OPP Detachment.
