Cash found on Fields floor

  • Jan. 25, 2008 6:00 p.m.

Two hundred and fifty dollars found on the floor in Fields over the holidays has been returned to its rightful owner, says Sgt. Jim Vardy of the Masset RCMP. He said an elderly woman found the money while shopping at Fields and brought it to the police station. Meanwhile, a woman involved with the Christmas basketball tournament realized she had lost some cash and was retracing her steps. The police were able to put the two stories together, said Sgt. Vardy, and the owner of the money has now picked it up. In other police news: a driver drove straight through a checkpoint in Port Clements on Saturday (Jan. 19). Officers were able to catch up with the driver and perform the check. He was arrested for drunk driving. The driver was from Terrace. The Observer also tried to get information about a vehicle accident in Tlell Monday night (Jan. 21). Residents heard a police car with its siren on go by around 10:30 pm and saw an overturned truck on the highway near the Rising Tide bakery. The Queen Charlotte RCMP detachment could not provide any details of the accident by press time. The Masset detachment did receive a call, but determined the accident was not in their area. Sgt. Vardy said there was a report of a person trapped in a vehicle.
