Masset police busy

  • Jul. 21, 2004 4:00 p.m.

Several break and enters have been reported in Masset over the past week, says Sgt. Andrew Isles of the RCMP detachment. On July 14, police received reports that five boats had been broken into at the Masset dock. Some small items were stolen. On July 16, a break and enter was reported at the Singing Surf, with money, personal items and alcohol missing from one of the rooms.
In the early morning hours of July 17, there were two attempted break and enters on Eagle Avenue in Old Massett. The residents were at home when people tried to break in, Sgt. Isles said. An arrest has been made in that case.
One male was arrested after a fight July 13 outside the Singing Surf at closing time, and two males were arrested after a fight early July 17 on Main Street at Collison Avenue, Sgt. Isles said.
Police are also investigating a “bizarre” incident in Old Massett where a group of males broke into someone’s house and assaulted the person. “Everybody knew everybody,” Sgt. Isles said. “We’re not getting a lot of cooperation, but we are investigating.”
Police were called out to Port Clements after someone reported their vehicle stolen from Bayview Drive the morning of July 18. Sgt. Isles said the vehicle was found about five blocks away, undamaged. The keys were in it.
In a separate incident, a man was arrested after police located a vehicle which had been stolen from Fir Crescent in Masset on July 16. It was found behind the administration building in Old Massett, Sgt. Isles said.
A camera found at the Tlell campground July 10 has been turned into the detachment. There is some engraving on it. Call the RCMP at 626-3991 to identify.
Meanwhile, Sgt. Isles says drivers need to buckle up and slow down. RCMP will be conducting speeding campaign from July 30 to Aug. 2.
