Car Accident in Bridgeview

Friends,

See email below from Bridgeview resident:

Hi Fabio,
Our Cavalier was parked, as always, in our driveway off of Pelletier. Early Saturday, September 16, (2017) a man in a Silver Grey Chrysler 300, jumped the curb coming off of the 1300 block of Partington, hit the rear end of the Cavalier, pushing it through the chain link fence, into the alley.  He sped off, turning right (north) on Rankin, stopping partway down, to get out and inspect the damage to his car.  He was seen doing all this by our neighbours. Upon noticing he was being watched, jumped in his car and sped off, following the curve at the end of Rankin, where it turns into Girardot.  He may be from the neighbourhood.  If anyone has any info or seen his license plate, please email it to rcook5@cogeco.ca.

Petition at West Side Foods

Friends,

Sandwich Town resident looking for some help:

We’re getting a Petition going to get the Government to allow small and at least this small Grocery Store the “West Side Food”grocery store to be able to sell Beer & Wine. The big stores have it and our local seniors have to spend $20.00 on a cab to get there. Wonder if you could ask people to stop in to the West Side Food & sign the Petition

Car Break-in on McEwan

Friends,

See a post from a west-end resident on McEwan:

"Hi Fabio,

Please share this for residents in the Bridgeview area to be on guard. Some thug stole our Tom Tom GPS from our car parked in a handicapped
spot on the 900-1000 block of Josephine Avenue during the evening of  Saturday, September 16 to early morning September 17, 2017.
Did not report to Police, but would appreciate a stepped up presence in our  neighbourhood by them.
Thank you for spreading the word."

Stolen Lawnmower

Friends,

See this message below from a Bridgeview resident...


Hi Fabio!  I wondered if you could please post this in your blog? 
From a West End resident (Askin/California area)

Returning home today I noticed the gate to the backyard was wide open. Thinking it was probably a Meter Reader who forgot to lock the gate I went up to said gate to lock it.

It was then I noticed that my shed had been broken into.

Checking the contents and determining what was missing I determined two lawn mowers were taken.

One was a newer Canadian Tire Troy Built 1600cc (as in picture), the other a recently painted and upgraded Sears Craftman.

A police report has been filed. A resident noticed 2 kids poking around everyone' s property and recalls seeing them with a red mower.
