On May 16, East Hants RCMP responded to a report of a downed power line in Mount Uniacke.

The beaver escaped unharmed !


On May 17, East Hants RCMP received a 911 call reporting that a family member had been scammed over the Internet.

The complainant was advised by dispatch that the 911 system is only to be used for emergencies and in the future to call the local RCMP detachment directly.

The investigation is ongoing.


Two of the three impaired drivers arrested in this weeks Cruiser column were done so before noon.

Please be aware that sleeping for a few hours after an evening of drinking doesn’t always ensure that you’re safe to drive.

In Canada, at least 2200 people die each year in car accidents and 55% of those are due to impaired driving.

East Hants RCMP wants to remind you that if you’re drinking, designate a non-drinking driver before you start, call a cab, or get a ride home.

Never let your friends drink and drive. Remember, driving drunk is never OK. Choose not to drink and drive and help others do the same.
