ENFIELD: For the week of Jan. 5 to Jan. 12, East Hants RCMP responded to 93 calls for service throughout the municipality.

On Jan. 6, officers were alerted by OnStar Emergency that a driver was in distress on Highway 102 near Enfield. 

Members attended to determine a dealer employee was transferring an electric vehicle from one dealer to another when it ran out of power.

The driver had pulled over safety and was waiting to be picked up and have the vehicle towed.

On Jan. 10, a 911 hang-up call from a residence in the Lantz area, with no answer on call-back sent officers out to check it out in person.  Members attended and attempted to knock at the door several times with no answer. 

Due to the potential seriousness of a call to 911, members lawfully entered the residence to find the homeowner asleep in bed. A thorough assessment was conducted, and it was determined there was no emergency. 

Members cautioned the homeowner on the false use of 911.  The public is reminded; the police respond in person to every instance of a call to 911. 

Persons who call 911 for false, frivolous, or vexatious reasons can be charged under the 911 act.

Police responded to Milford to deal with an ATV driving at a high rate of speed and doing wheelies near the Milford Esso on Jan. 11. 

Officers made a patrol; however the ATV was gone on arrival.  

Security footage has been obtained and the investigation is ongoing. 

Anyone with information on this matter is asked to contact the East Hants RCMP.

While on routine patrol in Belnan on Jan. 11, an officer spotted a driver who he knew to be suspended from driving.

The member stopped the vehicle and confirmed the driver was indeed suspended. 

The 37-year-old Nine Mile River man was charged with driving while his license was revoked.
