RCMP seek­ing as­sis­tance in B & E case

The Labradorian - - EDITORIAL -

In the early morn­ing hours of Aug. 21, mem­bers of the Happy Val­ley- Goose Bay RCMP re­sponded to three sep­a­rate break & en­ters into res­i­den­tial homes.

The first in­ci­dent oc­curred at ap­prox­i­mately 2:20 am when an un­known man en­tered a home through an un­locked door in the Grand Street area. The man was dis­cov­ered in the home by a home­owner and then fled on foot.

The sec­ond in­ci­dent oc­curred in the Court Manche Street area some­time af­ter 2:30 am. Dur­ing this in­ci­dent an un­known man en­tered a home through an un­locked door and was scared off by the home­owner. The sus­pect in this in­ci­dent was de­scribed as be­ing ap­prox­i­mately 5ft 10in tall with long shaggy type hair and of abo­rig­i­nal de­scent.

A third in­ci­dent oc­curred in the Mesher Street area when a man broke into a res­i­dence at ap­prox­i­mately 4:00 am and as­saulted the fe­male ten­ant. The man and woman knew each other and the man was sub­se­quently ar­rested a short time later. The man was held in cus­tody and ap­peared in Provin­cial Court in Happy Val­ley-Goose Bay later that day to an­swer to sev­eral crim­i­nal charges in­clud­ing break & en­ter and as­sault.

The RCMP are re­quest­ing to pub­lic's as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing the sus­pect in both the break & en­ters in the Court Manche and Grand Street ar­eas. The RCMP would also like to re­mind the gen­eral pub­lic to lock their doors — es­pe­cially at night — and to leave a light on over each en­trance as a gen­eral de­ter­rence and to re­port any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity to the po­lice.

If you, or any­one you know, has any in­for­ma­tion on th­ese break & en­ters, or any other crime, you are asked to con­tact the Happy Val­ley-Goose Bay RCMP at 709-896-3383.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion and who wishes to re­main anony­mous, can call Crime Stop­pers any­time at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). Tip­sters can also sub­mit se­cure tips on­line by log­ging on to Crime Stop­pers Web­site at www.rock­tips.ca
