Here’s some good news about a hockey parent for a change


 

Mobile phones thieves, beware: hockey dad is coming to get you. While the Guelph Jr. Storm, a Bantam AA hockey team from Guelph, Ont., played in an arena outside of Hamilton, Ont. last Monday, a thief sneaked into the locker room and took two iPhones, three blackberries and an iPod. The 14-year-old players only found out about the theft when they were dressing up to leave the place after the game. One player’s father, Dan Clarke, called police and was told to watch for the phones to show up for sale on the online sales website Kijiji. That’s when his dad powers came alive. On Wednesday, one particular ad on the site called his attention. Pretending to be a potential buyer, Clarke set up a meeting with the seller to confirm it was his son’s iPhone. After declining to buy the phone, Clarke called police who set up a similar undercover operation and arrested a 23-year-old man, who was charged with possession of stolen property under $5,000.

  1. Good for the dad, and good for you, Mr. Vieira, for using the correct past tense of the verb “sneak.” That’s a rare sight these days.
