An­napo­lis District RCMP didn’t have time to slow down Sept. 17 to 24. Things just kept hap­pen­ing, in­clud­ing cows in a ceme­tery, ac­ci­dents, par­ties, break-ins, thefts, and even a slashed tire.

Fol­low­ing are some high­lights:

Sept. 17, 2018

-- In Bear River, a caller re­ported find­ing a mil­i­tary flare and placed it in the back of his truck. RCMP ad­vised him to re­main where he was and they would pick up the flare. RCMP seized the flare and se­cured it and passed it on to a mil­i­tary mem­ber.

-- An un­wanted male was re­ported at the Mid­dle­ton skate park. The male was swear­ing at the young kids and re­fused to leave. Upon RCMP ar­rival, he was cor­dially es­corted out of the park and given a Pro­tec­tion of Prop­erty Act or­der for­bid­ding him to re­turn.

-- A re­voked driver was stopped while driv­ing his ve­hi­cle in Mid­dle­ton. He was is­sued a ticket, his ve­hi­cle was towed, and he will ap­pear in court this month.

-- The RCMP re­sponded to a work­place ac­ci­dent in Corn­wal­lis. A worker got trapped be­hind a back­hoe. The lever broke off and the ma­chine pushed him back against the win­dow. An­other co-worker came to the res­cue and turned the ma­chine off be­fore se­ri­ous in­jury re­sulted. The worker was treated at the hos­pi­tal and re­leased.

-- Sus­pi­cious youth were re­ported in Bridgetown. A caller stated the youth were be­tween 10 and 15 years old and were us­ing pro­fan­ity. The RCMP made a pa­trol but the youth were gone. It was de­ter­mined a fight had just oc­curred be­tween youth. The RCMP are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

Sept. 18, 2018

-- RCMP re­sponded to a theft of tires in Lawrence­town. The com­plainant stated he had a set of tires with rims on them for sale on his front lawn and some­time overnight some­one took them. RCMP ad­vised him although he had good in­ten­tions in hop­ing peo­ple would be hon­est, best not to leave items for sale unat­tended on the lawn. RCMP are re­quest­ing the pub­lic if they have any in­for­ma­tion on these tires, to con­tact the An­napo­lis District RCMP.

-- Ghostly cows were re­ported wan­der­ing through the ceme­tery in Mid­dle­ton. The RCMP re­sponded but the cows were gone. Maybe they were just “steak­ing” out the area for Hal­loween.

Sept. 19, 2018

-- In Corn­wal­lis Park a caller re­ported while at the YMCA one of her tires was slashed. RCMP are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing but re­quest­ing the pub­lic with any info on this dam­age to con­tact the An­napo­lis District RCMP.

-- A ve­hi­cle col­li­sion in New Al­bany re­quired fire, EHS and the RCMP to re­spond. The young driver hit the ditch, lost con­trol, rolled the ve­hi­cle, and landed on the roof. The of­fi­cer be­lieved speed to be a con­tribut­ing fac­tor. Luck­ily, the driver was un­in­jured.

Sept. 20, 2018

-- A break-and-en­ter into the James House Mu­seum in Bridgetown was re­ported. Sev­eral items were taken. RCMP are re­quest­ing any mem­bers of the pub­lic with any in­for­ma­tion on this break-in, to con­tact the An­napo­lis District RCMP.

-- RCMP are re­mind­ing the pub­lic that to drive a mo­tor­cy­cle, you need a mo­tor­cy­cle li­cense! That was the les­son learned by a mo­tor­cy­clist when he re­ceived a ticket for $295 for op­er­at­ing a mo­tor­cy­cle without a mo­tor­cy­cle li­cense.

Sept. 21, 2018

-- A ve­hi­cle struck the Round Hill Com­mu­nity Hall caus­ing da­m­ages. An RCMP of­fi­cer lo­cated sus­pect and they were charged with fail­ing to re­main at the scene of an ac­ci­dent.

-- RCMP re­sponded to sus­pi­cious males in Wil­mot. A caller re­ported the two males in their 20s with flash­lights, were check­ing the car doors at Team Auto. They even­tu­ally got a in a red car and left. RCMP are re­quest­ing the pub­lic if any­one has any in­for­ma­tion on this, to please con­tact An­napo­lis District RCMP.

Sept. 22, 2018

-- RCMP made pa­trols in Deep Brook in re­sponse to a call con­cern­ing mi­nors drink­ing and do­ing drugs. The RCMP at­tended the res­i­dence to find out it was a fam­ily party with 10 teens be­ing su­per­vised by adults. The of­fi­cer took the time to speak to the kids and there was no sign of al­co­hol or drugs.

-- RCMP headed to Lawrence­town to re­spond to a call about a loud party. RCMP at­tended the home and re­quested the home­owner move the party in­side and turn the mu­sic down. The home­owner agreed and mu­sic was ad­justed to a nor­mal level.
