It’s been over three weeks since the last report and I’m happy to say there have been only 4 reported Thefts in Half Moon Bay and Stonebridge areas in that time.
- 4 Thefts in HMB and Stonebridge with one on Riverset Cres and one on River Mist Rd on Oct 3rd. One reported Theft in HMB South and one in Stonebridge Community.
Have a Safe and Happy Halloween and for my pagan friends, have a Blessed Samhain!

The Kappa Sigma Fraternity brothers will be back again this Halloween to patrol our streets in an effort to help keep the streets safe for our children.
This is the 4th year that Kappa Sigma has patrolled the streets of Half Moon Bay for us. To find out more about these young men view their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/kappasigmacu
These young men will be out for 2-3 hours after dark to walk around Half Moon Bay as extra eyes and ears to report any problems that might arise during Halloween night. They will most likely be sporting their Fraternity logo Hoodies shown below. If you see them say hello and thanks.
We appreciate the continued support from Kappa Sigma Omicron-Pi Chapter!
The Ottawa Police Service would like to remind everyone to be safe this Halloween.
To help families have a safe trick-or-treating experience, the Ottawa Police offers you the following tips and tricks:
- Make sure your children can be seen. Visibility is an important safety consideration. Flashlights with fresh batteries, glow sticks and reflective tape are must-haves on Halloween and will enable drivers to see kids as they scout from door to door.
- Children should walk on the sidewalk and go to well lit homes on one side of the street; then cross safely at an intersection to visit homes on the other side of the street.
- Ensure costumes are fitted. Make sure your child’s Halloween costume is made of flame-resistant materials and is well fitted. Costumes that drag on the ground can pose a tripping hazard, which can be a serious danger if kids fall while crossing the street. Masks, hats and other accessories should also fit your child properly without inhibiting their vision. Halloween makeup is a safer option.
- Always trick-or-treat in groups. Accompany your children when they go out trick-or-treating. Older children may want to go with friends. If so, plan a route and make them carry a fully charged cell phone in case they get separated from the group.
- Check Halloween candy carefully. Treat your kids to a Halloween snack before they head out so that they are less likely to eat the candy they gather before you have a chance to inspect their loot bags. Teach your children never to eat treats that are in packages that have been opened, show pinholes or have other damage. And remember, avoid homemade treats or fruit unless they are from a family member or close friend.
- Find help. Teach your children to find a police officer if they are lost or need help while trick-or-treating.
- Motorists: be aware of children on the streets. With all the excitement some may forget to look both ways before crossing. Drive carefully and slowly when on residential streets.

October 15, 2014.
In recent weeks, 2 male individuals have been unlawfully soliciting donations under the Hopeful Hearts nam
This has been happening throughout Ottawa, most recently in the Bells Corners and Crystal Beach areas of the city. These individuals are scam artists and are in no way affiliated with the charity.
Suspect #1 is a tall, thin, dark haired male.
Suspect #2 is a blonde male in his late teens or early 20s
One of the two suspects is going by the name of Jason.
Hopeful Hearts does NOT currently have any events where they are soliciting door to door. Should any individual come to your home or business soliciting money in the charity’s name, do NOT give them any. Please contact police immediately (Case # 14 – 266003) and/or notify Hopeful Hearts at firstname.lastname@example.org
Crime report for October 2, 2014
- 3 reported Thefts from Vehicle in HMB south on Pennant Ave (1) and Meadowhawk Cres. (2)
- 1 Break & Enter on Blue Aster St in HMB
- 2 reported Thefts in Stonebridge Community
If you notice anyone walking down the street checking car doors call the police immediately. These people are looking to steel from your cars and are looking for easy, fast access to valuables left in cars. The number to call for crimes in progress (non life-threatening) is 613-230-6211 Don’t worry, it’s toll free, make the call.
Know your neighbours so that if someone is at their doors you’ll know if he or she belongs there. If you don’t, a moving van could be next door and empty the house while they’re at work.
And that guy carrying the golf clubs out of the garage across the street, does he live there or is he helping himself to an open door?
