Quad seized following chase in Port

  • Dec. 3, 2004 1:00 p.m.

Masset police chased a quad driver off the road and into the woods at the end of Yakoun Street in Port Clements last Thursday around 2:30 in the afternoon.
In the week before the incident, police received half a dozen complaints from village residents about a young man driving his quad erratically on the road through Port, and speeding through school zones.
Police found the man driving along the road and pursued him. He tried to escape into the woods, but police caught him. He’s been given multiple tickets, and the quad has been seized and impounded, said Sgt. Isles of the Masset detachment.
Also in police news last week,
o An 18 year old Old Massett woman was treated and released from hospital after being injured by a car while riding her bicycle November 29 around 9:30 pm.
oA Port Clements resident lost his 1990 Ford Ranger to the tide at Macintyre Bay December 1. The truck was recovered December 3, but it’s a write off after spending a couple of days under 20 ft of water, said Sgt. Isles.
oAn Old Massett residence on Raven Ave. was paint-balled and two tires were slashed on a vehicle parked in the yard sometime last week, said Sgt. Isles. This is the second incident at this residence-three weeks ago, six tires were slashed.
