ENFIELD:Between Sept. 22 and Sept. 29, East Hants RCMP responded to 119 calls for service. Police also conducted seven quarantine compliance checks as part of COVID public health measures.

On September 22, East Hants RCMP received a 911 call of a suspected impaired driver.  Police intercepted a 36-year-old woman in the Milford area who exhibited signs of impairment. 

After providing samples of her breath over twice the legal limit, the driver was charged and will be facing court.  

Police received a complaint of a 18-year-old man assaulting a 17-year-old woman on Sept. 23 in the parking lot of the Elmsdale Superstore. Officers made an immediate patrol and the parties located. The man was subsequently charged with assault.  

On Sept. 24, RCMP Dispatch received two 911 calls from a woman who wanted assistance locating her husband’s glasses and health card. Police attended, found the items, but gave the caller a firm warning that misuse of the 911 can result in charges.

The caller was grateful for the assistance and advised she was sorry for the trouble.  

Last week, the East Hants School Safety Officer performed four lock-down drills with school in East Hants.

For those requiring Criminal Records Checks, the detachment is pleased to advise they are now offering this service Monday to Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 12 noon at the Enfield Detachment!  

on September 25 at 8:30 a.m. a concerned citizen reported witnessing a vehicle driving recklessly on Highway 1 in Mount Uniacke.  An immediate patrol was made and the suspect vehicle located.

The 52-year-old man exhibited signs of impairment and was arrested for impaired driving. The driver blew over twice the legal limit and was charged.  

On September 28, police received a complaint of a vehicle trying to pass an ambulance which was proceeding to an emergency with it’s lights and siren’s activated. Police were unable to intercept.  This serves as a reminder that it is a chargeable offense not to yield to an emergency vehicle with its lights and sirens activated.  

Police received a complaint of a large group of students loitering and causing mischief at the Milford Esso parking lot on Sept. 29. In particular, some students were teasing a dog inside one of the vehicles, causing the animal distress. Officers made a patrol and upon arrival police found the youth behaving.

A contributing factor was the severe congestion caused by students and motorists accessing the business during the school break time.

Students are reminded they are accountable for their behaviour and may face consequences ranging from being banned under the Protection of Property Act, to Criminal Code charges for mischief or other related offenses.
