Hopefully, there aren't too many people on Santa's naughty list cause it looks like his shipment of coal got derailed.

On Saturday morning, Haldimand OPP was sent out to Highway 6 in Caledonia after a transport driver rolled his big rig taking a turn.
   
36,000 pounds of coal and diesel fuel were spilled onto the roadway and into the ditch.
   
The Ministry of Environment was called in.
    
The driver was not injured.
      
37-year-old Danijel Solic from Stoney Creek is facing multiple charges including careless driving, no clear view to the front, failing to enter minor defect in daily inspection log, and failing to complete daily inspection report accurately.
    
-- Two teens are in a world of trouble. On Wednesday, police say a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old male attempted to steal money from the Norfolk Association for Community Living when a Good Samaritan confronted them.
       
The 17-year-old then allegedly assaulting this person.
        
The youngest is facing a theft under $5,000 charge while his 17-year-old counterpart is facing the same charge with the addition of an assault charge.
       
Both are scheduled to appear in the court at a later date.
