Files of Note

Mischief to boat

On January 31st, a complainant advised that that his boat at Quathiaski Cove was broken into sometime in the last week. The individual(s) involved not only caused damage to the boat, but slept in the beds, ate food, and used drugs in the bathroom. The complainant also advised that various expensive electronics were also stolen. The people involved left behind some items, notably a bright neon green jacket and a walking stick. This incident occurred a few days after another boat in the same launch was broken into, but nothing was stolen. At this time, it is unknown if the two occurrences are related. The investigation is ongoing.

Fraud under $5000

On February 3rd, a complainant reported an on-line fraud that had occurred the previous day concerning a cat adoption. The complainant had done her due diligence and it appeared the adoption agency out of Alberta was legitimate. The complainant was on her way to pick up the animal, after paying the adoption and airfare fee, when she was advised that she needed to use another company to ship the animal. The representative from the company became aggressive, demanding more money, and the complainant had a gut feeling that the situation was not right. The complainant trusted her instinct and refused to provide more money and contacted the RCMP. The matter is still under investigation. 

Dropped 911

On February 4th, Quadra RCMP received a dropped 911 call. There were no voices heard, only some shuffling noises. Officers were able to locate the owner of the phone, who apologized and confirmed the call was accidental. Officers requested in the future that the owner speak with dispatch to confirm their well-being, to which they stated they would.

Missing person report

On February 14th, a concerned complainant reported a missing person. The complainant advised that her friend had not been seen or heard from in three weeks and she was very concerned. The caller stated she had checked her friend's house but was unable to locate her. Officers attended the missing persons house and located them right away. Complainant updated.

Assist ambulance

On February 16th, Emergency Health Services (EHS) requested police attend for a man locked in the local grocery store bathroom. Police attended and located the man who was being attended to by EHS. The man, who was not local, appeared to be suffering for a drug induced medical emergency and was transported to the hospital without incident.

Found bike

On February 17th, Quadra RCMP received a report of a found bike on Harbourbrook Road in Quathiaski Cove. The bike, which, a white and pink Rocky Mountain Topanga Mountain bike, was left on the side of the road and in bad condition. Please contact the Quadra RCMP at 250-285-3631 if this is your bike.

Check well being

On February 18th, Quadra RCMP received a request to assist another detachment in locating and checking on the well being of a man believed to be on Quadra Island. Officers, with the help of the locals, were able to locate the man quickly. Staff at multiple businesses in Quathiaski Cove reported a man they didn't recognize was acting oddly and directed police to him. The man was cooperative with police and agreed that his method of begging for money was making the public uncomfortable. The man politely asked for a ride to the ferries so he could return home, to which the Quadra RCMP obliged. 

If anyone has knowledge of this crime or any other or who is responsible, please contact the Quadra RCMP at 250-285-3631. If you wish to remain anonymous, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or visit their web site at www.crimestoppers.ca.
