Masset RCMP help stop cheque fraud

Between Feb.11 to Feb. 17, Masset RCMP responded to 28 calls for service.

Between Feb.11 to Feb. 17, Masset RCMP responded to 28 calls for service. These calls for service included four public intoxication/causing disturbance files.

On Feb. 11, Masset RCMP responded to a single vehicle collision on Hwy16 just north of the Tlell River Bridge. The call came in to police via the On-Star program in the vehicle. Police were able to speak directly with the occupants and determine that no one was injured. The road conditions were icy at the time and played a factor in the vehicle going off road.

On Feb. 12, Masset RCMP received a complaint that an employee had stolen several cheques from his employer. These cheques were then used at the bank and cashed for approximately $4,650. Given that the fraudster had the cheque cashed into their account it did not take long to figure out who the guilty party was. The parties involved have since worked out a repayment plan.

On Feb. 12, Masset RCMP conducted a probation check at a residence on Eagle Road in Masset in order to hold an offender accountable to his probation conditions. The offender did not present himself at the door as per his probation condition and was in violation of his curfew. A summons will be sought for a new charge of breach of probation.

On Feb. 13, Masset RCMP responded to a SPOT GPS activation in the Juskatla area. Fortunately the person requesting assistance got the help they needed before police attended.

Please remember, it takes a community to police a community and any suspicious activity can be reported to the Masset RCMP at 250-626-3991 or anonymously to Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or at
