Between April 8 and April 14, Masset RCMP responded to 35 calls for service.

These calls for service included seven incidents of causing a disturbance by being intoxicated in public, five property crimes and three assaults.

The past week was busy for Masset RCMP, responding to a number of alcohol related complaints. Masset RCMP were twice at the Trumpeter Apartments to deal with noisy party complaints which were fueled by alcohol.

Sometime over the last week, several seasonal residences were broken into on Kumdis Island near Port Clements. Numerous items were stolen including a Honda generator. The culprits also tried unsuccessfully to gain access to a gun safe in one of the residences. The culprits left several items behind at the residences and they will be subject to a forensic identification examination to determine if fingerprints were left behind. The investigation is continuing into this matter. If anyone has any information on who may be involved, you are encouraged to contact the Masset RCMP.

On the morning of April 9, Masset RCMP received a complaint of a break and enter in progress at a residence on Eagle Avenue. A member attended and learned that two residences had been broken into. Police were able to identify the two youth involved who initially fled on foot when approached. The member was able to catch up to the youth who were both arrested and found to be in possession of stolen property. The youth were belligerent and aggressive with police upon arrest. The youth both had been involved with police a number of times in the past and were held for court. The two youth were eventually released from custody by the courts and are due to attend court in Masset again in the near future. Neither of the two youth is from Masset.

Please remember, it takes a community to police a community. 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
