RCMP Report: Driverless vehicle

The tow truck was called to move the vehicle and as it was loading it, the vehicle came loose

On Saturday, Oct. 19, a vehicle broke down in Avola while heading south and onto Vancouver Island.

The tow truck was called to move the vehicle and as it was loading it, the vehicle came loose. The vehicle started to roll so the driver quickly ran to stop it.

He opened the door and stepped on the brake, however, his leg got caught underneath the tire.

The driver was taken to hospital with a suspected sprained ankle.

The landlord and the unwelcoming tenant

On Oct. 20, a landlord reported to police that he had been threatened by a tenant who was holding a rifle.

The person had gone to the property in order to winterize it and both he and his tenant began to argue. He left but then returned and when he did, the tenant greeted him at the door with a rifle.

Police attended and learned of ongoing issues including illegal entries made by the landlord while the tenant was not home as well as allegations of ruining his gardening area.

Ultimately, the firearm (which was improperly stored) was turned over to police in an effort to defuse the situation and prevent the situation from escalating any further.


Drugs seized during a stop for speeding

On Oct. 23, a vehicle was stopped for speeding. The police officer started to interact with the driver and soon detected the odour of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.

The driver was arrested and a small amount of marijuana and cocaine was seized from the vehicle.
