An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP in­ves­ti­gat­ing ap­par­ent three-day crime spree in Spring­field area

Annapolis Valley Register - - NEWS -

Sev­eral thefts from ve­hi­cles, break-ins, wan­der­ing farm an­i­mals, and traf­fic ac­ci­dents kept the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP go­ing from call-to-call the week of Oct. 22 to 26.

Most no­tably there were nu­mer­ous break-ins in the Spring­field and Falk­land Ridge ar­eas and a ham­mer was used in one case and a sledge ham­mer in an­other. In one res­i­den­tial break-and-en­ter the home­owner was still at home.

Oct. 22, 2018 Mid­dle­ton: A work­place ac­ci­dent re­sulted in the RCMP re­spond­ing to a busi­ness. A pal­let of boxes that was on a turntable hit an em­ployee. The per­son was trans­ported to hospi­tal with non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries and de­tails were passed on to the Work­ers Com­pen­sa­tion Board.

Oct. 23, 2018 Mid­dle­ton: RCMP at­tended a res­i­dence for sev­eral false 911 calls. RCMP are re­mind­ing the pub­lic that di­al­ing 911 for non­emer­gency calls and ty­ing up re­sources of first re­spon­ders may re­sult in a fine of $697.50.

Melvern Square: A caller re­ported a haz­ard of two teenagers skate­board­ing on the road­way and re­fus­ing to move for cars. A re­minder to our area teens: skate boards may have four wheels but they are not per­mit­ted on road­ways.

Bridgetown: Theft of two ex­pen­sive pairs of sneak­ers was re­ported. A fe­male sus­pect was de­scribed as hav­ing her hair in a bun, dark sun­glasses, jean jacket with hoodie, white flow­ered top, black sweats with white stripes, and sneak­ers. RCMP are re­quest­ing in­for­ma­tion as to the iden­tity of this sub­ject - now likely wear­ing brand new sneak­ers.

Bear River: It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no…. it’s some­one in the mid­dle of the run­way while a plane is at­tempt­ing to land! Trans­port Canada and the RCMP li­aised to­gether with this call af­ter a fe­male ran out onto the run­way caus­ing a pi­lot to abort a land­ing. Luck­ily the plane, pi­lot, and the run­way run­ner were all OK.

Oct. 24, 2018 Spring­field: A caller re­ported that while home, two peo­ple kicked open the door and were ob­served com­ing up­stairs with a flash­light. The home­owner yelled and the sus­pects quickly ran. Noth­ing ap­peared to be taken. RCMP are re­quest­ing if the pub­lic has any in­for­ma­tion on this break in, to please re­port to the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP.

Oct. 25, 2018 Spring­field: Theft from a ve­hi­cle and a break-in at Tammy’s Coun­try Store were re­ported. Video sur­veil­lance cap­tured footage of sus­pects. One was wear­ing black/ white plaid coat, blue jeans, hood and mask, and wear­ing gloves. The sec­ond was wear­ing a beige coat, black hoodie, tan boots and gloves. A sledge ham­mer was used to smash the win­dow to get into the busi­ness. Bad enough liquor and ci­garettes were taken, but the sus­pects de­cided to take a do­na­tion money box upon de­par­ture. RCMP are re­quest­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion on this break-in re­port to the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.

Spring­field: Spring­field was the hot spot again. A caller re­ported two of his ve­hi­cles had been ri­fled through and ap­prox­i­mately $50 in cash taken.

RCMP con­tin­ued their pa­trols in Spring­field. A sea­sonal res­i­dence and garage were bro­ken into. The sus­pects gained ac­cess by kick­ing in the garage door. Res­i­dence ac­cess was gained by us­ing a ham­mer from the garage to break the win­dow and un­lock the door. In­ves­ti­ga­tions are on­go­ing and it ap­pears all Spring­field oc­cur­rences are re­lated.

Falk­land Ridge: A Falk­land Ridge res­i­dence was bro­ken into as well. In­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing and the RCMP are re­quest­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­port to the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP.

Falk­land Ridge: There was an­other theft from a ve­hi­cle. The sus­pects took some loose change that had been in an un­locked ve­hi­cle. The RCMP re­mind the pub­lic to al­ways lock your ve­hi­cles and never leave any­thing of value in view in the ve­hi­cle.

Mid­dle­ton: Af­ter a se­ries of calls for break-ins, the RCMP re­sponded to some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent - a cow con­tently cut­ting the grass out­side Angie’s restau­rant. The RCMP made a pa­trol but the cow had wan­dered off into the ceme­tery where ap­par­ently the grass is al­ways greener.

Cle­mentsvale: It ap­pears Old Mac­Don­ald had a day off to­day as shortly af­ter­ward to­wards evening, a com­plaint was re­ceived of three horses go­ing for a walk in Cle­mentsvale. RCMP made a pa­trol to find the horses had made their way home. The caller asked, “what pos­sesses a horse to take a walk on the road af­ter dark?” The RCMP of­fi­cer replied “Night-mares per­haps.”

Oct. 26, 2018

Waldeck: RCMP re­ceived a re­port of an aban­doned ve­hi­cle on fire. The caller de­scribed the ve­hi­cle as a tan coloured Lin­coln. Fire ser­vices at­tended, did what they’re very good at, and what was left of the ve­hi­cle was towed. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing and any­one with any in­for­ma­tion on this “hot” car, please con­tact the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP.

Spring­field: A caller was con­cerned about the nu­mer­ous breakins and thefts in the area and wanted to re­port two sus­pi­cious males. Two in­tox­i­cated males (one of whom ob­served took quite a tum­ble) were noted on Ridge Road along with two ve­hi­cles. The sus­pi­cious males left be­fore the RCMP ar­rived, how­ever, one of the two thought­fully left a clue for the re­spond­ing RCMP of­fi­cer ex­actly at the afore­men­tioned ‘tum­ble’ spot - his pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer’s con­tact card not­ing his next ap­point­ment.

This weekly re­port is com­piled by Const. Ch­eryl Ponee of the An­napo­lis Dis­trict RCMP. Crimes, or in­for­ma­tion on crimes, can be re­ported to the An­napo­lis RCMP at 825-2000 in Mid­dle­ton, or 665-4481 in Bridgetown.
