News Update

September 23

1. The problem with comments clashing with a Joomla update has NOT been resolved although comments have now been re-activated.  Stay tuned for some major changes to this site over the next several months.  The intent is to continue with comments although there may be loss of comments older than a few months.  The momentary downtimes required for troubleshooting will now cease.  More on future changes here.

2. Ontario Street in Hamilton Township has been selected for the six bed Hospice in West Northumberland pending approval of its zoning application and a public community consent process this fall. The building team collaborated to research over 40 potential sites before concluding their rigourous selection process from a shortlist of five.  More here.

On January 14, 2017, a man robbed the Petro Canada Gas Station on Division Street at 5:50am.  Now, Dylan Scremin, 23 years of age from Kitchener is being held by Cobourg Police and is being charged with offences related to the robbery.  A Cobourg Police statement says that he was “arrested by the Waterloo Regional Police Service on other charges and held in custody..” but was “released on July 11 and (then) arrested by the Cobourg Police Service on outstanding warrants.”  That is, Waterloo Police turned him over to Cobourg Police.

He was charged with:

  • Disguise with Intent
  • Carrying concealed weapon
  • Imitation Firearm - Use while attempting to commit offence
  • Attempt Robbery
  • Disguise with Intent
  • Carrying concealed weapon
  • Imitation Firearm - Use while committing offence
  • Robbery with Theft
  • 2 Counts of Possession Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000
  • 10 Counts of Fail to comply with probation

Below are a couple of photos taken by surveillance cameras.  As one of the commenters on the item posted said:

I understand desperate people resort to desperate actions but in this day and age of technology, robbing a business is a no win situation. Just a matter of time before they are caught.

This guy was failing to comply with probation so he’s offended previously.  Seems he’s a slow learner.  See original report on the robbery here. Although the suspect left the premise with a quantity of cash, no one was physically injured during the robbery.  No-one could have been shot anyway since the gun was fake.
