Masset RCMP busy

  • Nov. 9, 2012 12:00 p.m.

The Oct. 27 earthquake and tsunami warning was obviously a significant event for the Island Communities. The Masset RCMP continue to work with the various agencies and community leaders to refine the Emergency Procedures when having to evacuate the communities. Fortunately, an tsunami was not experienced, however it did allow us to evaluate how effective the evacuation was and areas where improvements can be made.On Oct 29, RCMP received a complaint regarding night hunting on the beach off of Tow Hill Road by the CFS Leitrim Detachment Masset. Patrols were made to the area, however no suspects were located.Halloween night proved to be reasonably quiet for the Masset RCMP. An altercation between two youth resulted in one youth being charged with assault. This was reported to be linked to bullying between the youths involved. Aside from a few alcohol related calls, the night of trick or treating was uneventful. The weather was a probably a key factor in the reduced calls for service.On Fri. Nov. 2, Masset RCMP responded to a complaint of a domestic disturbance between a couple. A female was arrested and charges of assault causing bodily harm have been recommended to Crown Counsel. Later that same day, a complaint of a break and enter was received in Port Clements. Two youths were involved and the matter was dealt with informally with no charges being considered.On Sun. Nov 4, RCMP were made aware of a theft of tools from a logging truck that had broken down on the Canyon Main. Value of tools was approximately $600. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Masset RCMP at 626-3991.Over the course of the week, the Masset RCMP dealt with seven calls related to public intoxication. Of those calls, three individuals were arrested and lodged, while others were provided rides to a safe and secure location and a sober individual was responsible for their care.Anyone with information about any of the above are asked to contact the Masset RCMP at 626-3991.
