POLICE BEAT: Campbell River Re-store ripped off

The Re-store sells used household items and building supplies for great prices, and even builds homes for deserving families too, but that’s not enough to stop thieves.

On Valentine’s Day, staff arrived at the Campbellton store to find that someone had scaled the fence and ripped off roofing metal valued at $240.

Police are seeking the public’s assistance in finding the culprit.

 

Flare gun caused fire

 

Never keep your flare gun loaded.

That’s the moral following last week’s apartment fire.

According to Campbell River RCMP, the cause of a Feb. 11 blaze in the third-story apartment at 377 Dogwood St., was a loaded flare gun going off in a pile of laundry.

Police say the fire was accidental, and the lone female occupant was safely able to make it out of the apartment.

 

More rock throwing

 

Police are looking into another incident of people throwing rocks at passing vehicles on Dogwood Street.

At least three incidents were reported to RCMP between Feb. 5-11, including two on Dogwood.

The latest incident was reported on Friday at 8:51 p.m. A motorist was driving by Carihi Secondary when five youths, all wearing dark-coloured hoodies, threw rocks at the vehicle.

The driver stopped at the nearby RCMP detachment to report the incident, but the youths were gone by the time officers arrived.
