Masset police deal with car theft, fights

  • Jul. 28, 2004 4:00 p.m.

Masset police have made a second arrest in connection to a stolen vehicle incident earlier this month says Sgt. Andrew Isles.
Police arrested and charged a man for the theft of a vehicle from Fir Crescent in Masset on July 16 and now a young offender has been charged in the case as well.
A man was arrested and charged under the wildlife protection act for hunting from his car after police received a complaint in the early evening of July 23.
Police are investigating two separate but related fights. The first allegedly happened between two men July 25 at the recreation centre in Masset. One of the men involved in the earlier fight was allegedly assaulted July 26 in Old Massett outside of his home.
And in Port Clements, village workers discovered a large number of spent flares and empty air horns at the gazebo in the village’s campground. Police are concerned that the flares may have been stolen from a boat, and would appreciate any information. Also, they would appreciate any information about a wallet in a yellow dry bag with ID but no cash which a Tow Hill Road resident reports missing.
