The Compass - - OPINION -

Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate sev­eral break and en­ters into the same home on Oates Place in Carbonear.

The res­i­dence was bro­ken into March 8 and March 10.

RCMP say at about 3 p.m. March 19 two young males were seen run­ning away from the house.

“ Th­ese two males were de­scribed to be be­tween 5'7" and 6', and both were wear­ing navy blue hood­ies,” said Cst. Michael Collins.“The males were seen run­ning in yards along Bunker’s Hill and Con­nolly’s Hill to­wards the Angli­can Church. One was later seen rid­ing a BMX bike, while the other was run­ning. One male was wear­ing a grey knap­sack,” the con­sta­ble said.

RCMP are ask­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the crime to con- tact Trin­ity Con­cep­tion RCMP or Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-2228477.

RCMP Holy­rood lo­cate

two ice fish­ers

RCMP Holy­rood is­sued a cau­tion to out­door en­thu­si­asts last week af­ter two men went miss­ing dur­ing an ice fish­ing trip.

The two 62-year-olds left their homes at about 7 a.m. March 16 for a fish­ing trip in the Bri­gus Junc­tion area.

The men, who were trav­el­ling the area on three-wheel ATVs ad­vised they would stay at a cabin overnight, re­turn­ing noon the fol­low­ing day.

When they were not heard from at the ex­pected time, RCMP were no­ti­fied and the Cen­tral Avalon Ground Search and Res­cue Team, RCMP Po­lice Dog Ser­vices were ac­ti­vated and EMO en­gaged he­li­copter sup­port.

“At ap­prox­i­mately 1:10 p.m. lo­cal vol­un­teers search­ing the area lo­cated the two men. They were safe and sound,” said RCMP Cpl. Joe Sobol, March 18.

“RCMP would again like to re­mind those on out­door ex­cur­sions that it is very im­por­tant to file a travel plan to­gether with in­struc­tions as to what to do when you do not re­turn,” he cau­tioned.

“The ground search and res­cue teams in the prov­ince are com­prised of vol­un­teers, and the RCMP and EMO can use up valu­able re­sources which may be needed in a real emer­gency,” he said.
