The Packet (Clarenville) - - Editorial - BY MARK SQUIBB

Clarenville RCMP say an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the al­leged theft of an ATM ma­chine from Clarenville U-Wash is on­go­ing.

RCMP were called Oct. 26 re­gard­ing the in­ci­dent, and sur­veil­lance footage of the al­leged theft was posted to so­cial me­dia Oct. 29.

Also on Fri­day, Oct. 26, Clarenville RCMP also re­ceived a re­port of the theft of sev­eral thou­sands of dol­lars worth of first aid sup­plies from a ve­hi­cle in Clarenville.

In re­la­tion to the two in­ves­ti­ga­tions, RCMP con­ducted a traf­fic stop on Sat­ur­day af­ter­noon, Oct. 27, and re­cov­ered a stolen St. Johns’ ve­hi­cle — a ve­hi­cle that matched the de­scrip­tion of the ve­hi­cle used in the ATM theft. An ex­am­i­na­tion by the RCMP Foren­sic In­ves­ti­ga­tion Ser­vices yielded ev­i­dence that lead po­lice to be­lieve it had been used in the ATM theft.

The stolen first aid ma­te­ri­als were re­cov­ered from a sec­ond ve­hi­cle, driven by a lone fe­male oc­cu­pant, that was stopped Mon­day evening, Oct. 29,

An adult male and fe­male have been charged with pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty re­lated to the stolen ve­hi­cle dis­cov­ered on Sat­ur­day, and the same fe­male was charged with pos­ses­sion of the stolen first aid sup­plies on Mon­day.

The male will at­tend pro­vin­cial court in St. John’s in De­cem­ber, while the fe­male will ap­pear at Clarenville pro­vin­cial court in Jan­uary.
