ENFIELD: This week, East Hants RCMP responded to 111 calls for service between Oct. 13 to Oct. 20.

Here are some highlighted calls, as reported by S/Sgt. Cory Bushell in this week’s report:

RCMP were notified on Oct. 15 of a theft of a bicycle from the Canadian Tire in Elmsdale. Police were informed that a male, approximately 50-years-old and described as 5’8″ tall, wearing a blue non surgical mask, a green army coloured jacket and blue jeans stole a bicycle from the front foyer and road it away from the store.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Enfield RCMP at 902-883-7077.

On Oct.16, Bible Hill RCMP received a complaint of two vehicles racing on Highway 104 east bound east of the Toll Plaza. A Bible Hill member observed the vehicles but was not in a position to intercept and so the call was passed onto Enfield.

An Enfield Member located the vehicles on Hwy 102 south bound between exits 9 and 8. Members spoke to an 18 wheeler driver who witnessed the erratic driving and verified the vehicles involved.

It was learned that during the erratic driving, the suspect drivers were using their cellular phones to record the incident. This was confirmed by the officer and both drivers were charged for use of handheld devices while driving.

Police received a report of shots fired in the Nine Mile River area from a concerned citizen on Oct. 16. A patrol was made but the source of the noise could not be determined.  As the area was a logging road, it appears it may have been hunting related.

On Oct. 17, police responded to another complaint of shots being fired, this time in the Lantz area. Members did locate a group of hunters.

Upon inspection, it was determined all hunters were in compliance with proper licencing and the regulations as it relates to hunting in that area.

RCMP responded to a call of a vehicle crash near Shubenacadie on Oct. 17. Members arrived to find a truck had hit a power pole. 

The 23-year-old male driver exhibited signs of intoxication and was taken to Enfield where samples of his breath were taken to verify his intoxication. The male blew over twice the legal limit and was charged. 

Police are investigating the theft of a Black and Yellow 500 CC Polaris ATV on Oct. 19. It was stolen from a residence on MacMillan Drive in Elmsdale. The matter remains under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Enfield RCMP at 902-883-7077.
