Fried fish mistaken for drugs

  • Jan. 27, 2015 8:00 a.m.

Disputing roommates, frying fish mistaken for cooking drugs, and two stolen samurai swords: it may sound like a sitcom gone wrong, but it’s actually just another week at work for the Queen Charlotte RCMP.These three interesting files were a few of several, said Sgt. Scott Hromadnik, as police were fairly busy last week.Police responded to an assault in Queen Charlotte, which was a result two disputing roommates. It turned out to be minor in nature, but police remained to keep the peace while the pair parted ways. The victim didn’t want any charges laid.Later that week, police received a report that there were drugs being cooked at a house in Skidegate. An officer responded to the call and spoke with a person at the residence. The individual told the officer they were just deep frying a lot of fish, not cooking drugs. Police were shown the fish and oil, which confirmed the response.Finally, police responded to a report of a break and enter on 3rd Ave. in Queen Charlotte, where two samurai swords were stolen. Police think the thief entered from a window. There was no damage and it doesn’t appear as though anything else was taken, said Sgt. Hromadnik.
