RCMP re­port busy night

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

On Aug. 5, Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP re­ported a busy night of ac­tiv­ity as a re­sult of a rash of crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity in the area.

Shortly af­ter mid­night, of­fi­cers and a dog han­dler re­sponded to a re­port of sus­pi­cious per­sons around a prop­erty on River­side Av­enue in Clarke’s Beach.

Sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­sulted in the ar­rest of a 14-year-old fe­male and a 17-year-old male from the St. John’s area.

They were in pos­ses­sion of a ve­hi­cle that was stolen from the Bay Bulls area. They were also re­spon­si­ble for break­ing into sheds in the vicin­ity of Clarke’s Beach. An ATV and a dirt bike were stolen, but were sub­se­quently re­cov­ered. How­ever, in­ves­ti­ga­tors were still try­ing to iden­tify the owner of the dirt bike as of late last week.

A 2007 red Pon­tiac Wave, with pro­vin­cial li­cense num­ber HLZ 384, was also stolen.

“ This ve­hi­cle is still missing,” S/Sgt. Rick Robin­son stated last week, “and likely aban­doned some­where.”

Two ad­di­tional young males, again from the St. John’s area, were also in­volved. The RNC in St. John’s as­sisted in the ar­rest of one of the sub­jects.

Both sub­jects are fac­ing mul­ti­ple charges of theft over $5,000, theft un­der $5,000, pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty, break, en­ter and theft, pos­ses­sion of break-and-en­ter tools, and breach of pro­ba­tion.

The 14-year-old fe­male was re­leased on con­di­tions to the cus­tody of So­cial Ser­vices and will be ap­pear­ing in Har­bour Grace court on Nov. 1. The 17-year-old male ap­peared in youth court in Har­bour Grace on Aug. 5 for a bail hear­ing.

The mat­ter re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, and fur­ther ar­rests and charges are an­tic­i­pated, po­lice say.

In an­other case, RCMP con­ducted a traf­fic stop of a ve­hi­cle on Vet­er­ans Me­mo­rial High­way near Bay Roberts early on Aug. 5.

Sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­sulted in the seizure of more than one pound of mar­i­juana and a quan­tity of pills, in­clud­ing Oxycon­tin.

Two males from Car­bon­ear, aged 19 and 20, along with one male from Vic­to­ria, aged 20, were ar­rested and later re­leased. They will ap­pear in pro­vin­cial court at Har­bour Grace on Oct. 18 to face charges of pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing.

Any­body with in­for­ma­tion about any of these crimes is asked to con­tact the RCMP or Crime Stop­pers.
