ENFIELD: During the past two weeks, East Hants RCMP officers responded to 170 calls for service.

Below, S/Sgt. Cory Bushell provides some highlighted calls from Dec. 22, 2020 to Jan. 5, 2021.

On Dec. 23, members were conducting a checkpoint on Mill Village Road. A vehicle pulled up, and when the driver was asked to produce his license, he advised his wallet is at home. 

The officer was not content with that response, so members conducted the appropriate checks and determined the driver, a 49-year-old East Hants man had his license previously revoked. 

The driver was charged, and his passenger drove home.

A 54-year-old Walton area man has been charged for not following provincial health order.

On Dec. 29, East Hants RCMP were alerted to the Walton area where a local resident who had been out of the Atlantic region was failing to self-isolate as directed under the Health Protection Act. 

The resident was charged under the act and received a $1,000 fine.

On Dec. 30, members were called to the East Noel area for a report of a vehicle crash into a power pole. 

S/Sgt. Bushell said the driver was injured and taken to hospital. 

“Investigators determined the driver was under the influence at the time of the crash,” he said.

The driver, a 25-year-old East Hants man, was charged with impaired driving. He will appear in court at a later date.

During this period, 21 drivers were pulled over for speeding. Of those, seven were charged for infractions, while 14 were provided with a written warning.

S/Sgt. Bushell said that members responded to three reports of Break and Enter into a residence. One was in Moose Brook; one in Enfield; and the last in Shubenacadie.

Police are asking anyone with information on these or any other crimes to contact the East Hants RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

He said East Hants RCMP does regularly receive tips made to Crimes Stoppers.  These tips are extremely helpful in solving local crime.
