PRESCOTT – Local O.P.P. are looking for the people responsible for stealing clothing donation bins and damaging one so badly it can’t be repaired.
Grenville County O.P.P. say someone tried to steal a bin in the Canadian Tire parking lot in Prescott around 1:30 a.m. yesterday (Dec. 20).
While the thieves didn’t get away with the $1,000 bin, it was damaged beyond repair.
Two other bins were stolen from the Giant Tiger in Edward Street and from the area of Clothier and Prescott Streets in Kemptville around the same time.
Investigators believe the thefts are connected to similar cases in Smiths Falls and Ottawa.
