Crime Report for August 7, 2014

During the last couple of weeks there has been a rash of Theft from Vehicle in Half Moon Bay and Stonebridge communities.  Below is a list of crimes in these two communities during the last 14 days.

  • 1 Theft of Vehicle on River Run Ave in HMB on Aug. 4th
  • 6 Theft from Vehicle with one on Grand Vista in HMB Cir July 23rd
  • Theft reported with one at River Mist Rd and Song Sparrow St. HMB.


  • Please remember to keep your car doors locked at all times and remove valuables from sight.
  • Also it’s a good idea to keep your home doors locked and your garage door closed when you are not in direct line of sight.  People have had thefts from garages while in the back yard cutting the lawn.  Golf clubs are prime targets.
  • Someone could also come to your door and peek in side.  If you’re not in sight they can open your front door and grab that handbag you left in the foyer.  Gone in 60 seconds.
  • Use a burglar alarm that sounds a chime when your door is opened so you know someone just came in.

Crime Report for July 4th to July 23rd 2014

Well, after taking some time to myself for the last three weeks and not sending in a crime report, I find that I’m overwhelmed with the number of crimes that have occurred in Barrhaven since July 4th.  There are over 2 dozen thefts, 8 Assaults, at least half a dozen weapons offences and the list goes on and on with 2 stolen cars and 6 Break and Enters reported.

I think you get the idea and frankly I’m not sure how interested you all are in the crime reports in this format.  So I’m cutting back and only sending out relevant crimes in the neighbourhoods of HMB and Stonebridge areas.

  • Breaking & Entering DUNDONALD DR & RIVER MIST RD on July 13, 2014
  • Theft 3600 Block JOCKVALE RD on July 17, 2014

Having said that, here is a review published by the OPS.  This report examines all founded Criminal Code of Canada offences that were reported to the Ottawa Police over the last 3-years.  You can find the report in full at  Also you can read just the Barrhaven Report by clicking 3-Barrhaven_2012-2013_Crime_Trends_for_City_of_Ottawa.  It makes for some interesting reading.
