Police investigate potential poisoning of trees

Plum trees may have been killed off in order for someone else to get a better view of the water, police say

  • Jul. 17, 2012 9:00 a.m.

Campbell River RCMP believe someone may have poisoned a neighbour’s trees to improve their ocean view.

Police received a report Monday of three large plum trees in the Larwood Road area that had apparently been poisoned.

An arborist suggested the trees were intentionally killed. Holes were found at the base of the trees which are most likely where the poison was administered.

The RCMP is looking for assistance with this investigation. Anyone with  information is asked to contact CrimeStoppers or the local RCMP detachment.

Car thefts thwarted

Police responded to a report of a male and a female youth walking down South Alder Street attempting to break into vehicles around midnight last Friday.

Upon arrival, RCMP located the two suspects including two other accomplices. During the investigation, stolen property was located in the backpack of a male youth.

He is facing charges of theft under $5,000 as well as possession of stolen property.

Police are hoping to return the possessions seized to their rightful owners. There were four vehicles involved in this short crime spree.

Driver runs stop sign

Two vehicles were severely damaged in an accident at Simms and Galerno roads on July 10, around 1 p.m.

Mounties attended the accident and were advised by one driver that they did not see the stop sign and continued through the intersection. Their vehicle was then struck by another vehicle legally going through the intersection. The second driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The investigation is continuing and charges are pending against the driver who was not paying attention to the road.
