Files of note

Traffic Offence
On April 21, 2022, while conducting traffic control for BC Ferries, and employee stopped a large Telus truck that was trying to skip the line. The male, when he was directed to go back up to the end of the line, started swearing aggressively at the worker, drove his vehicle toward her, and stopped. The matter is still under investigation.

Unwanted camper
On April 25th, 2022 in the early evening Quadra RCMP were dispatched to a male camping in a tent on Harbour brook Road. The complainant stated the male had a complete set up, including a tent, chair, and stove and was currently brewing himself a cup of coffee. Members attended and requested the male move as his tent was situated on the road and blocking local traffic. The male was cooperative and packed up right away. The male appeared to have been able to successfully finish his coffee before departing.

Mischief to vehicle
On April 26th, 2022 at 11:34 am a complainant reported mischief to his vehicle at the Surge Narrows parking lot. The vehicle suffered damage to the brakes and emergency brakes sometime in the last two weeks. The driver noticed the issue when he was driving onto the ferry to Campbell River. Originally the incident was deemed suspicious as all the brake lines failed at the same time and appeared to be severed or cut. A few days later, the complainant called back and advised after a very thorough mechanical inspection in the shop, the brake lines had all rotted at the same time and no foul play was suspected.

Dropped 911 Call
On April 28th, 2022 at a little after lunch time, Quadra RCMP received a dropped 911 call. Operators were able to call back, and the caller confirmed that it was originally a medical call as someone was choking. However, they were able to dislodge the obstruction from the person’s throat and longer needed medical attention.
