Files of note:

Theft in progress?

In the evening of June 12th, a complainant reported that wood was being taken at the Quathiaski Cove Ferry terminal. The complainant provided a description of the alleged offender allowing officers to quickly locate them. The individual involved was extremely cooperative and apologetic and mistakenly believed that the wood was garbage and returned the wood right away. Officers believed the incident was purely a misunderstanding and that the wood would easily be mistaken for garbage due to its location next to the dumpster and condition. 

Check well being

On June 14th Quadra RCMP received a report of a check well being on the Haskin Farm Trail. The complainant located a man sleeping, and when tried to wake him, he was unable to fully do so. Officers attended and located the man who was not fully awake and coherent and agreed to move on. Officers were called again to the same area the next day for the same man, however, he left before members attended.

Abandoned 911 calls
