Queen Charlotte RCMP responded to 12 calls during the week of June 11-17, says Cpl. Ron Masch. The calls included the following: On June 14, RCMP received a complaint that two male youths had entered a residence on Second Avenue in Queen Charlotte. Police attended and located the youths, who were carrying property stolen from the residence. They were arrested for break and enter. The investigation revealed that some of the property had been taken from another residence that had been broken into earlier. The two youths were released to appear later in court. RCMP continue to investigate. Cpl. Masch said that over the past months, the Queen Charlotte RCMP have arrested and charged several people in four separate break and enter investigations. Police thank the public for their assistance in reporting suspicious activities as they occur. Without this help, Cpl. Masch said, many of these crimes might not have been solved. On June 15, police received a complaint that gas had been siphoned from vehicles at the Skidegate Health Centre. It was later reported that someone had seen a man leaving the parking lot with a hose in his hand. Police are investigating.
