Early on Friday September 23rd, 2016 items were being prepared to be stolen from a rural property located North of Township Road 470 on Range Road 22.

Vehicles were rummaged through, an ATV was pushed out of a storage shed and attempts had been made to start a skid steer.

The would be thieves were believed to have been scared off and nothing was stolen in the end.

This is a good reminder to ensure your vehicles remain locked and all valuables removed from them at night.

File # 2016-1271865

On Saturday September 24th Breton RCMP received reports that a concrete barrier which protects a gas line had been shot.  There were targets drawn onto the concrete.  It occurred sometime between September 23rd and September 24th.

The person responsible was lucky they hit their “target” as if they didn’t there could have been a very different ending.

Although not believed to have been done to cause damage, however to sight in a hunting rifle for the upcoming season, RCMP wish to remind hunters to sight in their rifles using the proper safety precautions.

If anybody has further information on this file or any others they are encouraged to phone Police or Crimestoppers.
