  • Nov. 25, 2013 11:00 a.m.

Queen Charlotte RCMP had a busier week than usual, according Sgt. Scott Hromadnik. On Nov. 12, police responded to a break and enter to the new teen centre in Queen Charlotte. The suspect or suspects broke into the centre sometime between Nov. 9 and Nov. 11, breaking a bathroom window as well as a few lights. Once inside, the suspect or suspects scattered videos throughout the centre and scattered a lubricant throughout. Police have identified the individuals involved and are continuing the investigation. On Nov. 13, police responded to an intoxicated male walking on Oceanview Drive. Police spoke with the man, who was holding a beer and stumbling out into traffic. Police arrested the individual and located several other liquor items on his person. The man was lodged in cells for his safety and to sober up before being released. On Nov. 15, police responded to a report of shoplifting at the Queen Charlotte Dollar Store. Police later identified the suspects involved and are currently looking to talk with them. The total loss was approximately $15. Police are reminding the public that shoplifting is considered a theft and the charge is a Criminal Code offence. On Nov. 16, police responded to a break and enter to a residence in Tlell. The suspect or suspects broke the door and window of the residence and stole the TV from inside. They also smashed a DVD player and satellite receiver and dumped a tub of margarine on the floor. They then went outside and smashed the window and slashed the tires of a vehicle. The suspects are now known to RCMP and police are continuing to investigate the matter. On Nov. 17, police responded to a domestic assault in Skidegate. A man was arrested as a result and was lodged in cells. The altercation appeared to be alcohol-fueled and there were no major injuries. The man was later released on strict conditions that will be monitored by police. On Nov. 17, police responded to a single vehicle accident on Highway 16 near St. Mary’s Spring. The vehicle’s driver lost control while travelling southbound around a corner, causing her Jeep Cherokee to veer into the right-side ditch. There were no injuries as a result of the accident, but the vehicle sustained extensive damage.
