The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

The fol­low­ing is a snapshot of sev­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tions Trin­ity Con­cep­tion RCMP have been in­volved with over the last week. They high­light the na­ture of some calls re­ceived and iden­tify in­ci­dents the pub­lic can pos­si­bly help with by pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion. July 27 • Trin­ity Con­cep­tion RCMP re­ceived a com­plaint of a theft from a ve­hi­cle in Clarke’s Beach. Re­ported stolen was a wal­let, con­tain­ing credit cards and other per­sonal prop­erty. July 29 • A ve­hi­cle was dam­aged in Car­bon­ear. The car had been left parked overnight at a ball­field in town. When the owner re­turned to the ve­hi­cle the next day, it was found the car had been keyed and the wind­shield cracked.

• An 80-year-old male res­i­dent of Vic­to­ria suc­cumbed to his in­juries af­ter be­ing struck by a ve­hi­cle on Fri­day night. In­ves­ti­ga­tion into the ac­ci­dent is on­go­ing. July 30 • A case of mis­chief in Is­ling­ton, Trin­ity South was re­ported to the RCMP. A pic­nic ta­ble was stolen from Ocean View Cot­tages and taken to a nearby beach where it was burned. July 31 • A num­ber of com­plaints con­cern­ing park­ing vi­o­la­tions at the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion Mall in Car­bon­ear were re­ported to po­lice. The RCMP would like to re­mind the pub­lic that park­ing in a fire­lane is an of­fence un­der the high­way traf­fic act, which can re­sult in a Sum­mary Of­fence Ticket be­ing is­sued or your ve­hi­cle be­ing towed if left unat­tended.

• Of­fi­cers re­sponded to a com­plaint of ut­ter­ing threats at the Cop­per Ket­tle in North­ern Bay. A 34year-old male was ar­rested and charged with ut­ter­ing threats, as­sault and mis­chief. The ac­cused is sched­uled to ap­pear in Har­bour Grace Court on Oct. 3. Au­gust 2 • Of­fi­cers re­sponded to a call for as­sis­tance in Bay Roberts. An 11-year-old male had fallen over a 100-150-foot-high cliff. RCMP, Wolver­ines Ground Search and Res­cue, Bay Roberts Fire Depart­ment, and am­bu­lance re­sponded. How­ever, the young male suc­cumbed to his in­juries.

• The RCMP would like to re­mind the gen­eral pub­lic that they are en­cour­aged to re­port any in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing sus­pi­cious or crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity to their lo­cal po­lice de­tach­ment. You can re­port your in­for­ma­tion in per­son, by phone, or by anony­mously call­ing Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-8477 (www.nl­crimestop­pers.com).
