Marijuana, coke seized in Old Massett

  • May. 8, 2006 5:00 a.m.

Over 60 grams of marijuana and an unspecified amount of cocaine were seized when Masset police intercepted a drug transaction in Old Massett.
RCMP Sergeant Jim Vardy said three people were involved, one from Old Massett and two from Skidegate.
The incident took place at the cemetery around 4 pm on Wednesday May 3. Three officers followed up on information received. The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending on all three individuals. Police also seized other drug related paraphernalia, such as scales.

A young boy had to be rescued from a boat tied to the pilings under the Masset government dock in the early morning hours of Wednesday May 3.
Sergeant Vardy says the 10-year old boy left his residence around 3 am and went to the docks, where he got into a small skiff. He was paddling around and decided to tie his craft to the pilings. As the tide came in it raised the boat and, the boy was no longer able to reach the knot he’d tied.
He cried out as the boat began to tip and someone on board another vessel at the harbour called police.
The officer who responded threw a life jacket to the youth, who was out of reach, and called for back up from the fire department. Another vessel was secured and the boy was rescued. He sustained no injuries.

Police also got involved in a cow-shooting incident last week. Sgt. Vardy says RCMP officers facilitated bringing a hunter, who killed a free-ranging cow roaming the northern beaches, together with its owner.
The two parties agreed on compensation, he says. But because the incident took place on Department of National Defence land at CFS Leitrim,” police are considering other charges. These include trespassing and discharging a firearm on DND land.
