Man arrested inside fish plant

  • Apr. 27, 2007 5:00 p.m.

A man was arrested inside Omega Packing Co. in Masset on April 17.
RCMP Sergeant Jim Vardy said the man broke into the facility and set off the alarm, alerting police.
When the RCMP members arrived the man was still in the building and was arrested. He has been remanded in custody for 30 days pending his first court appearance.
Two more break-ins were discovered over the weekend. On April 21, police were alerted that a break-in at a residence on Maple Street in Masset had occurred. Some cash was taken and the resident thinks it happened sometime during the night before. The resident said the door may have been unlocked.
A boat at the Masset harbour was also broken into and leather gloves were stolen.
Sgt. Vardy once again reminds people to lock up. He said that criminals in Masset seem to have second thoughts about breaking doors and windows. But “crimes of opportunity”, which Sgt. Vardy calls the break-ins to unlocked buildings, are more prevalent.
He said over the weekend the police responded to 31 calls. One 24-hour suspension was issued and six people were arrested for public intoxication and lodged overnight in cells. Excessive use of alcohol was involved in 10 of the 31 calls over the weekend.
