An Ontario Racing Commission notice sent out this afternoon outlines how the

Chatham Kent Police Service is asking for the racing community’s help in solving several thefts that occurred last November at Dresden Raceway.

Several horse people reported they had harness racing equipment stolen from the location.

If anyone has information on this crime, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers in Chatham Kent directly - 519 436-6632. Please quote the Chatham Kent Police Service file number CK-08043155. As with all Crime Stoppers calls, no Caller ID is used and no one is asked to give their name.

Information also can be provided anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers - 1-800-222-TIPS.

Crime Stoppers is a not-for-profit community-based charitable program involving the co-operative efforts of the community, the media and the police in the fight against crime.

The caller’s anonymity is protected, and they will never be asked to testify or be named. Cash rewards are offered to people who call the program and their information assists in an investigation.
