ENFIELD: East Hants RCMP responded to 84 calls for service throughout the municipality between Nov. 9 and Nov. 16.

The following are a couple of the highlighted calls as provided by S/Sgt. Cory Bushell.

On November 10, East Hants RCMP received a complaint that a local resident was being black mailed via Instagram.

The caller stated he had engaged in business discussion with an unfamiliar person online. Through these discussions, the suspect was able to gain access to the caller’s Instagram account and seize it.

The suspect refused to turn the account back over unless the victim agreed to certain demands as it related to the business discussion. 

Police say the matter remains under investigation.

Officers were conducting curfew checks on persons released by the courts on Nov. 13 when one such suspect was found not to be where he was supposed to be.

Commonly called house arrest, some accused persons or convicted offenders are placed on strict conditions while they await trial or while they serve a sentence imposed by the courts. 

Upon checking on an accused from the Maitland area, police found the 30-year-old was not present at the dwelling he was ordered to reside. Further investigation revealed a breach had taken place.

The accused was charged with breach of his conditions and will speak to this additional charge upon his next court appearance.  

East Hants RCMP will host a Stuff-the-Cruiser event at the Elmsdale Sobeys on Nov. 27 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

It will be held in support of the Caring and Sharing Angel Tree Food Bank in partnership with the Enfield, Elmsdale and Area Lions Club and Sobeys.
