CRIME OF THE week

Sackville Tribune - - EXTRAS -

Crime Stop­pers is seek­ing the pub­lic’s help in re­solv­ing an on­go­ing prob­lem of peo­ple dam­ag­ing

wa­ter­courses with mo­tor­ized ve­hi­cles.

A wa­ter­course is any body of wa­ter that in­cludes the bed, banks, sides and shore­line of any river, creek, stream, spring, brook, lake, pond, reser­voir or canal. It is an of­fence under the Tres­pass Act of New Brunswick to op­er­ate mo­tor­ized

ve­hi­cles in any wa­ter­course. Any­one con­victed of this of­fence could be fined any­where be­tween $240 and $5,200 for the first of­fence, and they could have their mo­tor­ized ve­hi­cle seized. It is il­le­gal to op­er­ate mo­tor­ized ve­hi­cles in en­vi­ron­men­tally sen­si­tive ar­eas such as wet­lands and sand dunes.
