Be On Look Out for this vehicle and driver

This report just came in via our website incident reporting page. If you encounter this person doing this type of stunt driving please get as full a description of the vehicle, license plate and driver as possible and call the police right away to report him.

Thursday, Feb 4

I was heading into Barrhaven. I entered the roundabout at Cambrian & Greenbank behind another vehicle. Approx half way through the driver in front suddenly spun his car around (now facing me). Our vehicles were within a few inches of each other. The driver, white male, early to mid-20’s, dirty blonde/light brown hair with a beard and his passenger were laughing hysterically. He quickly backed up enough to allow space for him to speed away. He drove back through the roundabout going in the wrong direction and exited at Cambrian heading towards Cedarview. Unfortunately given the circumstances I was unable to get a full plate, what I was able to get was it contained a BF & R. The car was a grey/silver 4 door. The road conditions were clear and fairly bare so I do not believe it was a case of bad weather. Thankfully it didn’t happen the previous day when the kids got an unexpected day off school and were around the neighbourhood playing and no other vehicle entered the roundabout as you do not expect to come face to face with a vehicle going the wrong way.

Residential Break and Enters on the rise across Ottawa

The Ottawa Police Service Break and Enter Unit has noticed an increase in reports of residential break and enters in which the suspect(s) use fire escapes and/or balconies to enter the residence.

Residents are reminded to keep their doors locked, even when at home, and to ensure any access points, garage, doors, patio doors and windows are also locked.

break-and-enterLocking windows is a must for ground floor and second floor windows that are easily accessible by other means, for example the garage roof or fire escape. The addition of extra security measures for patio doors, such as a security bar or wood stick, will aid in preventing the door from being pried open.

Do not leave valuables that may be easily viewed in front of windows or inside doors. We ask that residents always note and report suspicious persons in your neighbourhood.

There has been 35 break ins reported in the Central District area (including ByWard Market, Sandy Hill, Vanier, Centertown) since December 23, 2015. They mostly occur between 4pm and 11 pm. Items usually stolen are laptops, cash and jewellery.
