Watch out for increased road checks over the Christmas period as RCMP on the islands step up their annual Counter Attack campaign.
RCMP Sergeant Jim Vardy says increased road checks and traffic stops will be held in the Masset area from December 2 to January 2.
Police already received a complaint from a citizen who witnessed a drunk driver on the road. The driver blew .21, almost three times over the legal limit and was apprehended and charged.
In other police news, Masset RCMP dealt with 6 willful damage or theft from vehicles including slashing of tires over the weekend of November 19 and 20.
Three people were incarcerated for causing a disturbance due to alcohol. A shoplifter was arrested after being apprehended by Co-op staff on November 20. The individual had warrants out for his arrest from a Vancouver detachment on charges of drug possession.
On November 19, a vehicle was stolen in Masset and recovered in Queen Charlotte. A male suspect is in custody with charges pending. The vehicle had been left insecure with keys in the vehicle, although not in the ignition. Sgt. Vardy would like to remind people that auto theft increases insurance rates. “Please secure your vehicles,” he said.
