ENFIELD:  East Hants RCMP had a busy week, responding to 146 calls for service between May 18 to May 25.

Here are just a few of the highlighted calls as provided by S/Sgt. Cory Bushell, with East Hants RCMP. These are on top of the three separate stories on calls from the past week.

On May 19, officers responded to a complaint that an irate man was screaming at employees at a retail business in Elmsdale.

Police say a man was refusing to leave the store for not wearing a mask.

The individual left the store and the area before police arrived.

The matter remains under investigation.

On May 21, East Hants RCMP received two separate calls of shots fired in the Mount Uniacke area.

Upon arrival, officers observed a local adolescent setting off fireworks, which prompted an immediate meeting between police; the child; and parent.

RCMP responded to an Elmsdale grocery store where two women were said to be refusing to wear a mask.

According to S/Sgt. Bushell, police observed the women without masks as well as other patrons physically avoiding them. The member spoke to the women.   

S/Sgt. Bushell said the officer advised the offending patrons to don masks or leave. They advised they did not agree with wearing the masks and chose to leave.

Prior to them leave, police educated the women on the laws regarding masks and warned them of possible charges if they continued to disobey.
