Errington warning

More reports and sightings have surfaced since I was robbed in my own car on the evening of Nov. 14.

A thin, brunette, young-looking woman (who is actually in her 30s) has been hitchhiking between Church Road near the Co-Op Gas Station and Little Mountain towards Errington.

In some cases such as mine, she has made it seem like a dire emergency to have a ride, waving her arms and running towards your vehicle in a panic. I encountered her at Bellevue and Ruffles Road. Another witness recently met her on Leffler Road, offered help, but refused a ride. Smart. They had seen the character sketch I sent to family and friends who posted on Facebook — last I saw there were over 2,400 shares on social media.

Our community must be on alert, patiently awaiting Crown council to possibly issue a warrant for her arrest.

More locals have allegedly been robbed as far back as Oct. 8 (house theft in broad daylight) and as recent as Nov. 22-23 (again as a hitchhiker).

This girl is trouble and hopefully we will know how to work together to dissuade this kind of problem in the future.

Stay safe Errington, lock your doors, and if someone needs a ride call the police for assistance.
