Th­ese are some high­lights of RCMP calls Sept. 24 to 29:

Sept. 24

-- An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP wants to re­mind the pub­lic that you do need a driver’s li­cense to drive a car! RCMP stopped a ve­hi­cle in Bridgetown and not only did the driver not have the ve­hi­cle reg­is­tered or in­sured, he did not have a li­cense. The driver left on foot with a hand­ful of ex­pen­sive part­ing gifts.

-- RCMP went to a busi­ness in Mid­dle­ton in re­sponse to more coun­ter­feit bills. Luck­ily, the bills were com­pletely le­git this time.

-- There’s an on­go­ing is­sue at a bus stop in Wil­mot. A com­plainant did not like the fact par­ents were park­ing on his prop­erty, leav­ing cig­a­rette butts, etc. The is­sue was ad­dressed with the school board and the bus stop has been moved just down the road.

Sept. 25

-- A teacher at An­napo­lis re­ported that her phone was stolen off her desk on this day. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion still to lo­cate the miss­ing phone is on­go­ing.

-- “Who let the dogs out… again?” A group of teens in a Dodge Neon in Mid­dle­ton did! The com­plainant stated that a dog ran out of that ve­hi­cle and to­ward her dog. The teens felt some­how this was her fault, turned to her yelling pro­fan­i­ties. It was un­for­tu­nate and un­called for, es­pe­cially since her young daugh­ter was present. RCMP made an im­me­di­ate pa­trol but the ve­hi­cle could not be lo­cated.

Sept. 26

-- Po­lice re­ceived a re­port of an aban­doned ve­hi­cle in Spa Springs. The ve­hi­cle was not go­ing to be stolen in the near fu­ture – it had no wind­shield, no plate, no driver seat, and no en­gine! The owner ar­rived and said he had been tow­ing it to the dump when his sway bar broke. The ve­hi­cle was towed and brought to its fi­nal rest­ing place.

-- An­other driver ap­par­ently for­got that he needed a li­cense to drive! This driver was stopped in Mid­dle­ton. The ve­hi­cle was not in­sured and a ticket for $2,422.50 was is­sued along with a ticket for driv­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle while his li­cense sus­pended.

-- Shortly there­after, an­other ve­hi­cle was stopped in Mid­dle­ton as well. The ve­hi­cle’s plate was for an­other ve­hi­cle. That fine was $237.50 but it got worse for the driver. He did not have in­sur­ance or a li­cense ei­ther and it wasn’t his first time be­ing caught. Maybe af­ter re­ceiv­ing this ticket for $5,872.50 he will un­der­stand the im­por­tance of hav­ing a li­cense and in­sur­ance.

-- A caller re­ported an aban­doned ve­hi­cle in Lakeville. The ve­hi­cle had been parked by the por­ta­ble toi­let for more than a week. RCMP at­tended and, thank good­ness, no one was in the por­ta­ble toi­let for that long! The ve­hi­cle was bro­ken down and the owner was just wait­ing for re­pair.

-- You thought there was Llama Drama? Now we have ghostly cows again this week. The cows arose from the river, coasted through the grave­yard, and headed to­ward the road. Mem­bers of the pub­lic moooooved the cows away to the “ud­der” side so they would not go on the road.

-- RCMP went Cle­mentsport af­ter re­ceiv­ing a re­port of an at- tempted break and en­ter. A small win­dow was bro­ken at the caller’s rental prop­erty. Luck­ily, noth­ing was taken or de­stroyed.

Sept. 27

-- A two-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent in Wil­mot was re­ported. Ve­hi­cle #2 at­tempted to pass ve­hi­cle #1 but did not see that ve­hi­cle #1 had a sig­nal light on to turn and col­lided with the ve­hi­cle. There were mi­nor in­juries to the driv­ers but mod­er­ate dam­age to both ve­hi­cles.

-- An­other break-in was re­ported by the vet clinic in Bridgetown. Luck­ily this time, they did not gain en­try. It ap­pears the new bolt lock they had in­stalled af­ter the last break-in was tam­pered with. RCMP are re­quest­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic be dili­gent in re­port­ing any sus­pi­cious per­sons or ac­tiv­ity they see in the area.

-- An­other mo­tor ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent was re­ported, this time in Cen­tre­lea. The driver ad­mit­ted to fall­ing asleep. This re­sulted in the ve­hi­cle leav­ing the road and go­ing into a field. This power snooze un­for­tu­nately cost the driver $3,500 in dam­age. Luck­ily, he re­mained un­in­jured.

-- Due to a ci­ti­zen of Bridgetown be­ing vig­i­lant and re­port­ing sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity, lum­ber thieves were caught! The per­son saw a brown Ford truck drive by her home with an empty truck bed and then could hear what sounded like lum­ber be­ing loaded into the truck. The truck drove back now with a full load of lum­ber. RCMP mem­bers made an im­me­di­ate pa­trol and lo­cated the truck and oc­cu­pants. All oc­cu­pants were ar­rested for pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty.

-- The dogs were get­ting out ev­ery­where this week! A caller re­ported a black dog stand­ing in the mid­dle of the road in In­gle­wood and im­ped­ing traf­fic. The dog’s owner was lo­cated and re­trieved his four-legged friend.

Sept. 28

-- An­other on­line fraud was re­ported by a res­i­dent in Granville Ferry. RCMP again re­mind­ing the pub­lic about on­go­ing scams re­quest­ing large amounts of money to be sent to un­known per­sons or large amounts of money to be held. Do not give per­sonal in­for­ma­tion out. RCMP ad­vise the pub­lic about iden­tity theft and how easy it can hap­pen if per­sonal is in­for­ma­tion pro­vided to un­known per­sons.

Sept. 29

-- A break-and-en­ter into a book­store in Bridgetown re­sulted in thou­sands of dol­lars of dam­age as well. A com­puter mon­i­tor and key­board were taken, a fire ex­tin­guisher sprayed, and sev­eral items smashed. RCMP are re­quest­ing any in­for­ma­tion on this breakin to be im­me­di­ately re­ported to the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP. The Tem­ple on Queen was also bro­ken into as well. Video surveil­lance was seized and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion on­go­ing.

-- A bull in the mid­dle of the road in Mid­dle­ton was re­ported. RCMP re­sponded and the an­i­mal ap­peared “moooody.” The of­fi­cer con­vinced the beast it was best to go back to pas­ture, to which it agreed and re­turned un­harmed.

-- Theft of a four-wheeler was re­ported in Bridgetown. The com­plainant re­ported that he parked his red Honda by the pit at Tim Hor­ton’s a week ago and it is now gone. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion on­go­ing and RCMP again ask the pub­lic with any in­for­ma­tion on the miss­ing four-wheeler to con­tact the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP.
