Oct. 16, 2018

-- It’s bad enough wo­ken at 1 a.m. by a loud crash. Worse still to find out that crash was be­cause some­one drove across your yard, into your drive­way, and col­lided with your parked ve­hi­cle. While the Mar­garetsville res­i­dent could see the tire marks in the yard, the sus­pect ve­hi­cle had left af­ter hit­ting her ve­hi­cle. RCMP made a pa­trol and found a fen­der with the Honda logo. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing and RCMP are re­quest­ing any­one with any in­for­ma­tion on this hit-and-run to please re- port it to the RCMP.

-- RCMP also re­sponded to an­other mo­tor-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion on this date – this time the cul­prit be­ing a tree limb which fell on her ve­hi­cle and dam­aged the top of the car.

Oct. 17, 2018

-- An­other mo­tor-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion kept the RCMP oc­cu­pied the next day in Granville Ferry. A col­li­sion oc­curred be­tween a school bus and a van. The school bus driver was deemed not at fault and ev­ery­one in­volved es­caped in­jury.

-- Early in the morn­ing, the RCMP re­ceived a call of a break-and-en­ter in Bridgetown. Young males, ap­prox­i­mately age 13 to 15, were seen ex­it­ing a home with a ham­mer. The home is un­oc­cu­pied and un­der ren­o­va­tions. Both boys fled to­wards the school and although pa­trols were made, the youth were not lo­cated. Re­gard­less, if any­thing was taken or dam­age done, the RCMP are re­mind­ing the pub­lic that en­ter­ing pri­vate prop­erty is tres­pass­ing and sub­ject to a fine of up to $500.

Oct. 18, 2018

-- A com­plainant re­ported theft of more than $20,000 from a bank ac­count since May. The vic­tim was friended on Face­book by some­one claim­ing to be a coun­try mu­sic star. Ini­tially the vic­tim was per­suaded to send money, af­ter which the cul­prit sent her a cheque which she de­posited. These funds were then im­me­di­ately with­drawn by the sus­pect. While this in­ves­ti­ga­tion is ac­tive, the RCMP re­mind the pub­lic that if any­one re­quests money, be it through Ki­jiji, Face­book, etc., not to send any money or pro­vide any per­sonal in­for­ma­tion.

-- Theft of money and dam­age to prop­erty was re­ported in Par­adise. The caller re­ported the sus­pect used a bolt cut­ter to cut the lock off the green­house hon­our box. A sus­pect was cap­tured on video and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing. Po­lice are re­quest­ing any in­for­ma­tion on this crime be re­ported to the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP.

-- In Port Wade, a caller re­ported that a male came on to the prop­erty in a four-wheeler, dam­aged the mail box, and did donuts on his lawn.

Oct. 19, 2018

-- On this date our part­ners with the Depart­ment of Nat­u­ral Re­sources were pa­trolling for il­le­gal hunt­ing in the Princedale area when they stopped a ve­hi­cle on a ser­vice road to a cabin. The ve­hi­cle had a large amount of freshly har­vested cannabis on board so they con­tacted the RCMP. Mem­bers made a pa­trol and fol­lowed the road a bit and found a beau­ti­ful se­cret gar­den….50 mar­i­huana plants. The driver of the ve­hi­cle was is­sued a ticket for il­le­gal trans­porta­tion of cannabis and the plants were seized. Un­der the Cannabis Con­trol Act, il­le­gal trans­porta­tion of cannabis in a ve­hi­cle is $295.

-- An at­tempted break-and-en­ter was re­ported in Bridgetown. A caller re­ported the apart­ment door was dam­aged and the shovel from the shed nearby. No en­try was gained and noth­ing was taken. Po­lice are re­quest­ing any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity be re­ported to the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP.

-- In Bridgetown a group of youths were re­ported throw­ing rocks and crab ap­ples at a house. RCMP made a pa­trol and found the youth. They were kids in town for a hockey tour­na­ment. No dam­age was done to the house. The coach and par­ents were no­ti­fied and as­sured the RCMP the ap­ple-throw­ing posse will all be spend­ing some qual­ity time in the prover­bial penalty box.

Oct. 20, 2018

-- In Vic­to­ri­avale, Canada Post mail boxes were dam­aged. Noth­ing was taken from the boxes. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing and the RCMP are urg­ing the pub­lic if they have any in­for­ma­tion re­port it the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP.

-- RCMP re­sponded to Princedale for a dirt bike ac­ci­dent. The driver of the dirt bike ran into a wood pile and suf­fered in­juries to his face. EHS trans­ported the driver to hospi­tal for treat­ment.

Oct. 21, 2018

-- A sin­gle-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent in Cle­men­st­port was re­ported. The driver of a ve­hi­cle went into a ditch and hit a num­ber of trees. The driver was trans­ported to hospi­tal with non- life- threat­en­ing in­juries. The ve­hi­cle was writ­ten off so the driver was very lucky.

-- A caller from Wil­mot re­ported a fe­male in rub­ber boots came to the door and asked to use the phone. She then left with two males. The sus­pects were lo­cated and ad­vised po­lice they were sim­ply look­ing for a drive to Kingston - shock­ingly enough these days, not one of them had a cell­phone.
