  • Jul. 2, 2015 7:00 p.m.

On the evening of June 25 police conducted a check stop at the intersection of Port Augusta Street and Comox Avenue in Comox. While checking a vehicle, with a man and a young girl in it, the odour of liquor was detected and the driver was found to have been consuming. The investigation resulted in the driver being given a 90 Immediate Roadside Prohibition and had his vehicle towed and impounded for 30 days.

Stolen air compressor

On June 26 police received a report of a theft of an air compressor from a locked storage shed at the Merville General Store located on the 6600 block of Island Hwy North. Thieves pried the lock hasp from the door to gain entry.

Moored motor theft

On June 27 police took a report of a theft of a Yamaha boat motor from a boat moored in the Comox marina. Through information from the owner, a suspect was identified and police are continuing with this investigation.

Speed and alcohol don’t mix

Over the weekend of June 27-28 the Comox Valley RCMP conducted road checks and speeding enforcement and while doing so located four separate drivers that had been consuming alcohol. All four drivers were found to be over the legal limit and were given 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibitions and have had their vehicles towed and impounded for 30 days. One of the drivers was stopped while speeding in a playground zone.

Armed threat

On the evening of June 27th the Comox Valley RCMP were called to a report of a male holding a razor blade and threatening another male with bodily harm. Immediate attendance was made and it was discovered an argument between two men ensued over drug usage which escalated into one of the men pulling out the razor blade and making threats. The man was arrested and will be attending court on a later date.

Keep your butts in the car

The Comox Valley RCMP is reminding locals about the dangers of throwing items out of a moving vehicle. There was a report of a person in a vehicle tossing a lit cigarette from a vehicle and with the recent extreme heat and dry conditions makes this a fire hazard. As well under the Wild Fire Act, there is a charge for throwing a burning substance from a vehicle and a person could be fined $173, with the possibilities of further sanctions depending on the severity of the damages.

Stolen Stihl

On June 29, Comox Valley Police were advised of a chain saw theft. An unknown male, described as white, wearing a white muscle shirt, mid 30s walked into a local rental shop on the 600 block of Anderton Rd, Comox and walked off with a Stihl Chainsaw valued at $500.
