Masset RCMP investigate tourists having tires slashed

Between Dec. 11 to 13, a couple visiting Haida Gwaii had all the tires on their vehicle slashed.

Between Dec. 11 to 13,  a couple visiting Haida Gwaii had all the tires on their vehicle slashed. The couple was staying in a cabin at 15900 Tow Hill Road. On the night of Dec. 11 two of their tires were slashed. Then on the night of Dec. 13, the other two tires were slashed. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time, however the investigation into this matter is continuing. This was very unnerving for the couple as this was done while they slept inside their cabin. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Masset RCMP or call Crimestoppers anonymously.

On the afternoon of Dec. 24, the Masset RCMP received a complaint of a break and enter to one of the residences at the Trumpeter apartments. Members attended and learned that a laptop computer had been stolen. A review of the surveillance video at the apartment complex showed a male trying to gain access to several apartments, eventually entering one. The male then exited with the laptop and departed the area. The male, who was well known to police, was arrested shortly after. The laptop was recovered at the time of arrest. The male was eventually released and is scheduled to attend Masset Provincial Court in the near future. A charge of Break and Enter will be recommended by Masset RCMP.

In the early morning hours of Dec. 25, Masset RCMP received a complaint that a male was wandering around inside the Trumpeter apartments banging on the doors and urinating on the carpet. Members attended, however the male had since departed. Investigation revealed that the subject of the complaint was a male well known to police who was on several court ordered bail conditions. The investigation continues into this matter.

Masset RCMP reported a quiet start to 2014 and New Year holiday.

As always, 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 online at
