ENFIELD: Over the past week (Sept. 1 to Sept. 7) officers with East Hants RCMP responded to 73 calls for service.

The following are highlighted calls as provided by East Hants RCMP S/Sgt. Cory Bushell.

ATV DRIVERS REPORTEDLY IMPAIRED

On September 4, a caller in South Rawdon reported there were approximately 20 ATV’s that are just starting to come back from an ATV run to a nearby campground and that some of the operators were impaired.

Police made an immediate patrol to the campground, but the ATV’s had not returned to that location.

S/Sgt. Bushell said police want to remind ATV operators that impaired driving laws apply to all manners of conveyance.

Be it a car, truck, boat, aircraft, ATV or even a ride-on lawnmower, impaired driving is a serious criminal offense and will be dealt with accordingly.

FRAUD OVER A KITTEN

On September 3, East Hants RCMP received a report of fraud.

The victim advised they had made a $550.00 online deposit for a kitten, and then when they went to pick the kitten up, the seller was not there, and the account was closed.

This is yet another reminder to never pre-pay for items that are being sold through on-ling markets places like Kijiji or Facebook Marketplace.

STOLEN FURNACE OIL

On September 3, officers received a report from Center Rawdon that someone had stolen the furnace oil from the local parish church.

With the high price of fuel and furnace oil, police expect this trend will continue throughout the province.

Residents are strongly cautioned to take preventative measures such as locking your oil cap, using video surveillance, obstructing access to your oil tank, etc.
