ENFIELD: Over the past week (May 29 to June 7) members of the East Hants RCMP responded to 101 calls for service.

 Here are some of the highlighted calls as provided by East Hants RCMP S/Sgt. Cory Bushell.

TRESSPASSERS VEHICLE TOWED

On May 31, East Hants RCMP received a complaint of trespass at the Shaw Resource pit in Hardwood Lands.

Upon arrival, police found a stuck pickup truck and two young men walking nearby.  The men admitted to driving in the pit and getting stuck. 

 Police towed their vehicle at the owner’s expense.

The public are reminded that private and commercial properties are off limits to off road riding without the consent of the owner.  People found trespassing in this regard may have their vehicle towed, face fines or both.   

WOMEN CHARGED WITH SHOPLIFTING

East Hants RCMP have charged two women with shoplifting after an incident on May 31.

Police say the two women were observed taking a grocery cart full of items and leaving the store. 

Officers caught up to the duo after a brief investigation and identified the culprits as 25-year-old female from Grand Prairie and a 25-year-old from Mill Village.

The pair will be facing the courts at a later date for the charge of theft.

FRAUD COMPLAINT 

On June 3, East Hants RCMP received a complaint of Fraud. A local resident reported they had just sent $400 in Apple gift cards to someone claiming to be from the Department of Health and Human Services.

The scammer has promised a return on the investment of $85,000. The investigator confirmed the matter was an outright scam and the $400 was lost.

Residents are reminded that scammers routinely ask for payment in the form of gift cards. No credible agency would request payment in such a manner.

When in doubt, contact the RCMP or the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
