Staff at a Sahali distribution company vowed Tuesday to seek the culprit out if someone doesn't confess to dragging a large boulder from its front lawn onto Laval Crescent.
Given the size of the boulder — one of many outside BA Robinson on Laval Crescent — operations supervisor Willie Sayers believes a big rig driver took a wrong turn, turned around and caught the rock under the wheels of his or her vehicle.
"That's why they put those rocks there, so the 18 wheelers couldn't come into our yard, drive onto the property and onto our grass, and break sprinkler heads," said Sayers.
Someone did just that between the end of the workday Monday and the start of work Tuesday. Staff arrived Tuesday morning to find the rock in the street with an orange road marker in front of it.
"It was on the corner of the lot and it was pulled five or 10 feet. It was in the middle of the lane," said Sayers.
"The rock is pretty big."
Sayers hired an excavator to lift the rock back into place. Obviously an accident, he still wants whoever is responsible to come forward.
If someone hasn't fessed up by the start of work Wednesday, Sayers said his security cameras will tell the tale on video. He said he might not be able to read the licence plate, but he should be able to spot the company identification.
"There's no reason for those (rigs) to come in here," he said, adding the gates to the property are locked at night. "I think he turned in here and said 'oh no, what am I doing here.'"
As far as Sayers knows, this is the first time one of the boulders has been struck and moved.
