What was the tractor bucket doing in buddy’s truck? Annapolis District RCMP investigating
There were benches damaged at a park, a woman was upset the bus was late, and one guy came home to find his tractor bucket in the back of a guy’s truck. There were several car vs deer accidents, break- ins, and horse on the highway. All those calls and many more kept the Annapolis District RCMP busy the week Nov. 12 to 19.
Following are some highlights: of the
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.
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.
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.
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.
