“SHOPPERS DRUG MART ROBBED AGAIN!”
Aylmer – For the second time in a few months, Shoppers Drug Mart was robbed at knifepoint. The latest incident occurred last Monday night about 8:30 pm when a young male produced a small kitchen knife and demanded oxycontin at the pharmacy counter and then fled with a quantity out the rear door. Aylmer Police described the suspect as about 20 years old, thin build, about 5 foot 5-8 inches, wearing a black hoodie and a red bandana covering his face. Earlier this fall a young female also displayed a small knife in following the same robbery routine for oxycontin.
“AYLMER MAN CONVICTED OF RESISTING ARREST”
A 48-year old Aylmer man was convicted of failing to comply with an undertaking and two counts of assault with intent to resist arrest in court last week. The man was given 14 days in jail and two years probation for the offences which arose from an incident in August in the Kuma Coffee Shop parking lot when he was stopped by police for violating his curfew.
“PT. BRUCE FLOOD ADVISORY ISSUED BUT NO SEVERE PROBLEMS”
(This info was supplied by Tony DiFazio, Resource Planner at Catfish Creek Conservation Authority, in relation to the recent flood advisory for Pt. Bruce)
“This winters moderate temperatures produced limited ice cover on Catfish Creek and scattered ice congestions. Ice cover was limited to the lower 2 miles of the watercourse with thicknesses around 2 inches in the upper reaches and 6 inches in Port Bruce. Snow pack was also limited in our watershed this winter reducing the water equivalency contribution to this storm/flood event. This along with generally ice free lake conditions and open harbour allowed the channel to convey broken ice (last week to Pt Bruce). The CCCA continued the Flood Advisory until noon January 26. The watercourses in the upper portions of the watershed have crested . Conditions were favorable for localized flooding.”
