Tool Theft In #Sackville. Please Share And Keep An Eye Out. 

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:

Stand-up compressor
Bosch 12′ chop saw

Hilti concrete drill and bits

Makita 8 1/4” skill saw

Cordless gear

Dewalt SDS drill and bits

Dewalt portable table saw

Max Strip nailer

Stabbila plate level

Bosch radio

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.

Needs At 73 #Sackville Drive Is Closing For Good. 

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*

Sacktown Sub News: Captain Submarine Returns. 

 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!  


NSCC Students Made A #Sackville Themed Listicle. Check It out:  

 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” 

Great job, young Sackvillains!

Halloween Dance At Sackville Legion. Mark The Date! 

 Hey look, a place where we can legally dress up like clowns in Sackville! 

The #Sackville Clown That Terrorized Us Speaks: 

 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! 😂


Clown Stopped On Sackville Drive By Cops.  Hahaha What The?

Kwik Way Convenience by Kaiser’s Has Closed #Sackville

 Hm, this place had been around for quite some time. Kinda surpised to see that it’s closed. This is where I’d grab my Pepsi to wash down my Kaiser’s sub. 

 All the best to the owners and hopefully something interesting pops back up in that spot soon.
