Here’s some handy info, y’all:
Release from the RCMP:
Halifax District RCMP investigates rash of tool thefts, Lower Sackville, N.S.
Last night, just after 2 a.m., suspects entered a van parked in a private driveway on Rankin Dr. in Lower Sackville and removed a number of tools. The suspects loaded the tools into their truck, a dark coloured pick-up truck, and sped away from the scene. Within minutes, RCMP made multiple patrols of the area but were not able to locate the suspects. The tools are believed to be valued at between approximately $7,000 and $10,000, and mostly bear the brand name Dewalt. The tools are also labelled with either the owner’s name or ‘MRS Construction’ in permanent marker. Several items, including the victim’s van, have been seized for forensic examination, and the file remains under investigation.
On Tuesday evening, Halifax District RCMP were also called to investigate two break-ins to outbuildings where tools were stolen. A utility trailer parked at a construction site on Westridge Dr. in Tantallon was broken into, and several Dewalt tools and other brands were stolen. They include:
Bosch 12′ chop saw
Hilti concrete drill and bits
Makita 8 1/4” skill saw
Dewalt SDS drill and bits
Dewalt portable table saw
Max Strip nailer
Stabbila plate level
Makita coil nailer
Suspects also broke into a storage container located at the rear of a business in the 400 block of Cobequid Rd. and stole a generator and a number of small power tools.
Investigators are asking anyone who has any information concerning these incidents to contact them at 902-244-7208 or any RCMP office, Halifax Regional Police or Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS ( 8477 ), texting TIP202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) or by Secure Web Tips at http://www.crimestoppers.ns.ca .

Geez, this is kind of surprising. Just a while back they replaced the old Needs/Ben’s Outlet sign for a shiny new Needs only one.
Does anyone know how long it’s been there? Was it one of our original Green Gables locations? Many questions!

Anyway, best of luck to the person or persons who were operating it. Sucks to see things close up. That strip mall has another big empty spot right now where Marlene’s Sewing Bee relocated up the road. Hopefully someone comes up with a good biz idea….like a pinball arcade. *hint hint*
Well lookee here! The hot, fresh and friendly staff at Robin’s will now be serving up some toasted sub goodness.
We had a Captain Submarine here about 10 years ago, I’m thinking. Down by Scotiabank. They make a pretty good sub! I wonder how they will make out this go-round where Quizno’s and Mr. Sub flopped.
You gotta bring your sub “A game” to Sackville with Subway and kaiser’s here.
Welcome back to the ‘Sack, Captain Submarine!
Check this out, students at NSCC made the listicle Ten Things Only People From Sackville Will Get and they pretty much nailed it. Hahaha!
Can you think of any? I have one:
-The “Pit” and the “Creck”

I just finished talking to the young man who went for a stroll down Sackville Drive last night. He was dressed up in “full clown” and proceeded to make make many people chuckle – and a few scream and run.
His name is Chris Smith and he was basically just in a goofy mood and decided to go for it. He said he received mostly honks, waves and smiles but a couple people did get freaked out at the sight of him – we all know some people are terrified of clowns.
He said the cops stopped him and told him to take the mask off, he asked why a couple times then took it off and they confiscated it ($65 mask). They took his name, checked him out through their system and mentioned he had been spotted doing this over two days, which he denies. He told me he only did it the one time – last evening.
Anyway, that’s about it. Maybe this infamous clown will be invited to join the Sackville Patriot Days parade next Summer – riding in the back of a cop car, of course! 😂
Afraid of clowns?
Ya may want to look away. This just happened down on Sackville Drive and I have no idea wht the Hell is going on. I just know this is the most Sackville random post I have ever made.
Thanks for the pic Sarah!
