Nov. 12

WIL­MOT – A caller re­ported an aban­doned ve­hi­cle at the Wil­mot Bap­tist Church. RCMP made a pa­trol but be­cause the ve­hi­cle was bought and sold a few times, the owner was not able to be lo­cated. The caller waited a few days and as the ve­hi­cle was not moved, he had it towed. So heads- up to the owner, your ve­hi­cle has been re­moved.

PORT GE­ORGE – RCMP at­tended a sin­gle- ve­hi­cle crash. The car was off the road but the driver was not around. Even­tu­ally, the young driver and his mom showed up. The of­fi­cer ed­u­cated the young driver of the im­por­tance of re­main­ing at the scene of an ac­ci­dent un­der Sec­tion 97(1) of the Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle Act.

PARK­ERS COVE – On­line scam­mers were at it again! A caller stated she re­ceived a call from a male stat­ing porn was on her com­puter and it would cost her to get it fixed. The RCMP ad­vised her to change pass­words and never to pro­vide per­sonal in­for­ma­tion. On­line scams should al­ways be re­ported to the Cana­dian Anti Fraud cen­tre at 1-877-495-8501.

UP­PER GRANVILLE – The first of many car vs deer ac­ci­dents was re­ported. There was ex­ten­sive dam­age done to the ve­hi­cle. Sta­tus of the deer? Un­known.

PAR­ADISE – A caller re­ported there was a deer on the side of the road that ap­peared to be hit but still alive. RCMP made a pa­trol but the deer was de­ceased upon ar­rival. RCMP are re­mind­ing the pub­lic in the event of col­li­sions with deer, please re­port to An­napo­lis District RCMP as we can deal with the an­i­mal hu­manely, if re­quired.

Nov. 13

WIL­MOT – RCMP re­sponded to a break- in to a shed. The sus­pect, af­ter gain­ing en­try, left with a lawn mower. A lawn mower in Novem­ber? Re­ally?

MELVERN SQUARE – A caller re­quested po­lice to at­tend and deal with noisy neigh­bours. He did re­quest it be a fe­male mem­ber to re­ally set them straight… proper thing. Smart man says I!

Nov. 14 BEA­CONS­FIELD – Downed power lines were re­ported. NS Power at­tended and made sure the lines were dead. The RCMP of­fi­cer was nev­er­the­less “shocked” to see the dam­age.

Nov. 15

SOUTH FARM­ING­TON – It was not a great week for deer in An­napo­lis County. A caller and wit­ness stated a large deer ran out in front of his car, struck the side of the ve­hi­cle, then the wind­shield. There was ex­ten­sive dam­age to ve­hi­cle and the deer was de­ceased.

MID­DLE­TON – A sus­pi­cious male was re­ported at the bank. A caller said the male kept walk­ing in and out and smelled like ‘weed.’ The RCMP made a pa­trol and fol­lowed the skunky smell for a bit but did not lo­cate the male.

FALK­LAND RIDGE – A breakand-en­ter into a ware­house was re­ported. Point of en­try was gained by us­ing an axe to smash down the wall - not the qui­etest way of do­ing it! A num­ber of items were taken: bolt cut­ters, jerry can full of gas, 12 pack of 1-litre mo­tor oil, floor jack, and an axe. RCMP are re­quest­ing any in­for­ma­tion be re­ported to the An­napo­lis District RCMP.

MELVERN SQUARE – There was a re­port of horses run­ning on the road. The caller was wor­ried the horses may be a hit by a car. RCMP made a pa­trol but there was no sign of the horses. Maybe this was just a “fairy tail…”

Nov. 16 IN­GLE­WOOD –A caller re­ported he was away and came home to find fresh ve­hi­cle marks on his lawn. A 3,500lb axel and deep- cy­cle bat­tery were gone. He dis­cov­ered the same items were brought in to a scrap yard and sold. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues.

CORN­WAL­LIS PARK – There were re­ports of two youth car­ry­ing golf clubs and bang­ing on signs. A pa­trol was made and po­lice in­tro­duced them­selves to youth from the Digby area. An­napo­lis RCMP teamed up with Digby RCMP to get the boys a ride home. Both boys were re­minded that golf cour­ses here are gen­er­ally closed this time of year.

Nov. 17

HAMP­TON – There were re­ports of a sin­gle- ve­hi­cle crash with the ve­hi­cle over em­bank­ment. While the driver was trapped, the pas­sen­ger man­aged to crawl out. Po­lice, fire, and EHS all worked to­gether to free the fe­male driver. Both par­ties were trans­ported to the hos­pi­tal with non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries.

BRIDGETOWN – Theft of scrap metal from a caller’s prop­erty was re­ported. The caller re­ported he met a man on his prop­erty with the prop­erty owner’s trac­tor bucket in the stranger’s truck. When the caller ques­tioned why his prop­erty just hap­pened to be in his truck, the man said he ‘found it’ and was just re­turn­ing it. Such a kind ges­ture but the caller wasn’t fall­ing for this as there was no ad­dress on the trac­tor bucket! RCMP are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

Nov. 18 CORN­WAL­LIS PARK – Benches were dam­aged at the Vet­er­ans Park. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on this need­less prop­erty dam­age, please con­tact the An­napo­lis District RCMP.

MID­DLE­TON – RCMP made a pa­trol for a noise com­plaint. It ap­pears an un­known fe­male was a bit upset the bus was late so vented her frus­tra­tion by yelling and bang­ing on the bus stop sign.
