Sex, drugs and — vagrancy — near Courtenay bridge

The Comox Valley RCMP have received numerous complaints about suspicious activity occurring near the Condensory Bridge in Courtenay.

These complaints include vagrancy, drug activity and sexual acts taking place in the woods on the north bank of the river. Police have located several places where it is believed that these acts are taking place.

These areas are littered with garbage and police are working in consultation with the K'ómoks First Nation to ensure that this

garbage is cleaned up. The north banks of the Puntledge River are K'ómoks First Nations land and are marked with no-trespassing signs.

The Comox Valley RCMP will continue to monitor this area and will be pursuing charges of trespassing, drug possession or indecent acts should these events continue.

Anyone with information about these events or others are asked to contact the Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
