ENFIELD: Over the past week, members of the East Hants RCMP responded to 139 calls for service.

The following are a couple of the highlighted calls as provided by Community Policing Officer with East Hants RCMP, Const. Preston Burns.


Om May 10, East Hants RCMP were advised that a vehicle had passed a school bus while the lights were activated.

Before the RCMP officer was able to make a patrol, the driver of the vehicle presented themselves to the Enfield detachment and explained that the bus was stopped at a railway crossing and they weren’t able to stop in time.

There were no children entering or exiting the bus.

The driver was upset and remorseful.

A warning was given, and the driver was told to be more cautious and observant while driving.

Had the driver been charged, the fine is would have been $410 and an accumulation of six demerit points.


On May 11 East Hants RCMP received a complaint from a victim of fraud.

The victim had e-transferred money to a male who had provided an address in Fredericton, N.B. to hold a vehicle pending pickup.

When the victim attended the address, the homeowner was oblivious to the transaction and stated that the male contact did not live there.

The victim attempted to cancel the e-transfer.

Police are continuing the investigation continues.

The public is urged to never transfer money to anyone unless they know the person or risk losing it forever.

This type of scam is very common and preys on people who will take a risk to obtain a deal the seems too good to be true.
