Ian Thomson – Man Steals Bridges

Ian Thomson – Man Steals Bridges
It took two and a half years, but Port Colborne, Ont., resident Ian Thomson is finally done defending himself. First he fought the men who tried to murder him. Then, his own government.

Mr. Thomson had long been involved in an increasingly angry property dispute with his neighbour. Early one August morning in 2010, four masked men shouting death threats began hurling firebombs at Mr. Thomson’s home. One of his pet dogs was injured; several fires in and around his home were set.

Mr. Thomson, an experienced firearms instructor, called 911 immediately. He also armed himself with a .38 calibre revolver, stepped outside his home and fired three shots — one into his lawn, and two into a stand of trees. His attackers fled, and were later arrested. All four pleaded guilty to arson and disregard for human life, and were sentenced to between two and three years in prison.

A Russian was arrested for stealing a bridge this week after police said they followed drag marks to his home.

The 23-year-old man in the northern Vologda region apparently hooked the small steel bridge to his tractor and hauled it away to sell as scrap metal.

Police told Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency they followed the trail the bridge left on the ground to the suspect’s house in the village of Frolovo. The man had allegedly used a cutting torch to break the structure down into smaller pieces, but had not yet sold them.
