Masset RCMP received a complaint of a home invasion in Masset on April 13, says Sgt. Blake Ward. A residence was apparently broken into and several items stolen. The father of the victim called the RCMP as he was fearful for his son. The RCMP arrested one man in relation to the home invasion, but he was released without charges the next day after the victim refused to provide any details about what had happened. Masset RCMP would like to stress that without the public’s assistance, incidents like this cannot be fully investigated. Crimes like home invasions are very serious, and have the potential to inflict grave injuries, says Sgt. Ward. In this case, the victim and suspect are known to each other and it is believed this break and enter was related to people trying to find a way to support drug habits.
