(ST. MARYS, ON) - Members of the Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are requesting assistance from the public to identify suspects involved in two significant acts of mischief at the St. Marys Cement Plant in the Town of St. Marys.

The first incident is believed to have occurred during the early morning hours of July 1, 2018. Suspects entered the plant and caused damage to multiple pieces of equipment. A structure on the property was also broken into, where the suspects continued to cause further damage. The damage is estimated in excess of $75,000.

A second incident occurred during the early morning hours of July 4, 2018. An area of brush located on the property had been set on fire during this occurrence.

"These were senseless acts of vandalism. In addition to the loss of property and impact on the business, of greatest concern, is the fact that these suspects were operating equipment they may have been completely unfamiliar with. This incident could have resulted in a fatality. This matter will be investigated fully, and the Perth County OPP requests the invaluable assistance of the public to identify those responsible." Staff Sergeant Steph Pilon, Operations Manager, Perth County OPP.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police immediately at 1-888-310-1122. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit a secure web-tip at, where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
