Po­lice seek pub­lic’s as­sis­tance

The Southern Gazette - - NEWS -

The Burin Penin­sula District RCMP is seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in solv­ing a break and en­ter, a case of theft and prop­erty dam­age in the Marys­town-Burin area.

A cabin in the Green Hill area of Burin was bro­ken into some­time July 5-12. Quan­ti­ties of rum, along with a generator, were stolen.

A num­ber of signs have re­cently been stolen in the Moor­ing Cove area, near the OCI fish plant. This is a se­ri­ous of­fence as these signs are meant to safely di­rect the proper flow of traf­fic.

Steal­ing road signs can lead to a num­ber of mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sions, rang­ing from mi­nor fender ben­ders to se­ri­ous fa­tal­i­ties. The pos­si­ble con­se­quences of such ac­tion are be­ing charged with theft, mis­chief and/or mis­chief caus­ing en­dan­ger­ment to life and man­slaugh­ter.

The last two of­fences carry a max­i­mum sen­tence of life in prison.

And dam­age was done to a bench in Black Duck Cove May 15. The bench was lo­cated at the end of Spar Cres­cent.

If you have any in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this or any other of­fence call the RCMP at (709) 279-3001 or 1-800-709-RCMP (7267). Crimestop­pers may also be con­tacted at 1-800-222TIPS (8477) or on­line at ‘www.nl­crimestop­pers.com’.
