RCMP Report, week of May 4-10

  • May. 13, 2015 9:00 a.m.

On May 8 police received a report of a stolen vehicle from a residence on the 2400 block of Tiger Moth Place in Comox. The vehicle was located shortly after on the Comox Lake Road near Cumberland.  The truck suffered extreme damage from what appeared to be a blunt object. This file remains under investigation.

Cyclist hit on highway

During the early evening hours of May 8 police entered into an investigation of a cyclist hit and run on Island Hwy. South near Hastings Road. The cyclist stated that he was southbound when a blue pickup hit him with what he believes was a mirror. The cyclist was taken to St. Joseph’s and suffered only minor bruising as a result of the collision.

Reckless driver

On the evening of May 9 police entered into a hit and run, multiple vehicle and property collision that had occurred on and around the parking lot on the 100 block of 20th Street in Courtenay. Several witnesses saw the accused in the suspect vehicle and reported same to the police. Charges of dangerous driving and failing to remain at the scene of an accident are pending.

Shooting at the lake

The RCMP took a report of a dangerous use of a firearm from boaters on Comox Lake on May 10. The boaters related that two males were seen to be shooting a shotgun out towards the lake and the pellets were falling all around them.

Be pet smart

It’s that time of year again and the heat is upon us. Do you feel hot when the sun is beating down and you are driving around in the car?  Well your best friend, the dog, is probably worse off than you.  He has to wear a fur coat and he can’t roll down the window to cool off. Police are asking pet owners to act responsibly and don’t leave your pet in the hot car. In general police do not like to forcibly enter people’s vehicles but if required to save an animal’s life they will do what is required.

Put away that phone

The Comox Valley RCMP traffic section stepped up the provincial traffic enforcement initiatives last week. Cst. Owen Laforest said “that in two hours they wrote 25 tickets for infractions of cell phone use and seatbelt non-usage.” Now that summer is here the motoring public can expect more impromptu traffic stops. Inspector Tim Walton said, “It’s not like we are hiding, we are telling the Comox Valley citizens that we are going out looking for violators almost to the point where we are giving the exact intersection we will be working at.”
