SOUTH MIL­FORD – A driver head­ing north on High­way 8 lost con­trol on slip­pery roads and ended up in the ditch. The ve­hi­cle was towed and the driver was a lit­tle shaken up but not in­jured.

CORN­WAL­LIS – Another ac­ci­dent re­quired RCMP re­sponse. The ve­hi­cle, af­ter hit­ting the stop sign, went off the road. The cause of the ac­ci­dent was due to slip­pery roads and hav­ing sum­mer tires on ve­hi­cle. The RCMP is re­mind­ing the pub­lic that as much as we don’t want to be­lieve it, win­ter is here!

DEEP BROOK – Po­lice re­ceived a re­port of a trans­port truck block­ing the road. The truck was stuck at the top of the on ramp due to slip­pery roads. There was no dam­age to the ve­hi­cle and no in­juries to the driver. The truck was even­tu­ally moved out of the way.

MID­DLE­TON – Po­lice re­ceived re­ports of three teens throw­ing rocks at ve­hi­cles at a lo­cal car deal­er­ship park­ing lot. The RCMP at­tended but did not find any dam­age to the ve­hi­cles.

Nov. 20, 2018

SOUTH WILLIAMSTON – What is worse than your truck be­ing on fire? When it’s a truck filled with diesel fuel and its parked in your drive­way! RCMP and fire at­tended. There was some dam­age to the home but luck­ily no one was in­jured.

LEQUILLE – There was another mo­tor ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent due to icy roads. Luck­ily there was no dam­age to the ve­hi­cle or driver. A two truck was called to pull the ve­hi­cle out of the ditch.

Nov. 21, 2018 GRAYWOOD – There was a break-and-en­ter into a cot­tage. The sus­pect used a grinder to cut the gate to the drive­way and then broke sev­eral win­dows and doors. Weirdly enough, noth­ing was stolen but the place was ran­sacked. RCMP are ask­ing the pub­lic with any in­for­ma­tion on this B&E to please con­tact the An­napo­lis District RCMP.

Nov. 22, 2018 WALDECK – RCMP made a pa­trol to a re­port of a stranded mo­torist. The RCMP lo­cated the ve­hi­cle that was stuck in the mid­dle of the road along with the driver. The ve­hi­cle was re­moved from the road­way and driver was driven home.

Val­ley Waste truck. Only mi­nor dam­age was done to the ve­hi­cle and none to the Val­ley Waste Ve­hi­cle.

CENTRELEA – There were re­ports of a large 4x4 truck do­ing donuts in the park­ing lot. When the RCMP hear ‘donuts’ they al­ways rush to the scene! A pa­trol made but un­for­tu­nately the truck was gone. Donuts re­mained vis­i­ble but not the kind the of­fi­cer wanted!

Nov. 23, 2018 MID­DLE­TON – A driver was ob­vi­ously in a rush to get his cof­fee be­cause he backed into a ve­hi­cle and hur­ried out of the Tim Horton’s park­ing lot.

The caller said peo­ple had told him who took it so the RCMP made a pa­trol to the sus­pect’s home. Low and be­hold, there was the com­pres­sor. The sus­pect stated he thought it was garbage so took it. Yes, com­pres­sors that are garbage are al­ways left plugged in a hall­way when main­te­nance work is be­ing done!

Nov. 25, 2018

PORT ROYAL – Po­lice re­ceived a re­port of a grey pick up in the ditch but no­body around the ve­hi­cle. RCMP made a pa­trol and the driver was al­ready in the process of hav­ing the truck towed out. The driver didn’t re­port it to the po­lice prob­a­bly for the rea­son that he was un­able to pro­duce valid in­sur­ance. A ticket was is­sued.

LAWRENCETOWN – RCMP re­ceived a re­port of a break-an­den­ter that oc­curred at some point in the last two weeks when the caller was on va­ca­tion.
