I didn't call him a pedophile. 

 

Surprised he's been able to abide by all his conditions. https://www.vancouri...rges-1.23937233

Nancy Werenka, who runs Griffin Lake Cabins just off the Trans-Canada Highway west of Revelstoke, called RCMP on Aug. 21 to report that some guests and her 13-year-old son Max had found a vehicle in the lake.

 

The guests had read a story online about two teenagers receiving the Governor General’s bravery award for rescuing a family of four whose van plunged into Griffin Lake in June 2009. The guests wanted to find out if the van was still in the lake, so they went out searching with Max.

 

“They found a vehicle. But they didn’t think anything of it. They thought it was the van, and they went home and didn’t do anything about it,” said Werenka.

 

The next day, an RCMP officer came out to the lake for a picnic lunch with relatives who had just checked into the cabin. Someone mentioned the vehicle that had been found and connected it to the 2009 rescue. The RCMP officer said: “Well, I’m pretty sure that [van] came out of the lake. We better report this.”

🚔Suspect In Theft, Robbery & Assault - Thanks -Officer For Arresting Him🚔

Victoria, BC – A man who was taken into custody Monday night after fighting with both a Patrol officer, a loss prevention officer, a manager and passersby at a local store, thanked the VicPD Patrol officer who arrested him.

A VicPD Patrol officer were called to a store in the 2600-block of Quadra Street just before 7:30 p.m. Monday night for a report that a man had taken items without paying for them. The man began to fight with the loss prevention officer who stopped him. The store manager and passersby stepped in to assist the loss prevention officer struggled to contain the suspect while another person called 911.

While the Patrol officer was on route, the caller reported to the E-Comm 911 call taker that the suspect claimed to have a weapon and threatened to stab those restraining him. Several additional officers were dispatched to the call. When the first Patrol officer to respond arrived on scene, the suspect began to fight with that officer. The suspect was taken into custody after a brief struggle. No one was injured in the incident.

Once arrested, the suspect thanked the officer for taking him into custody. The suspect allegedly remarked that he was in the midst of days-long period of drug use and had been unable to successfully access detox and other social supports. The suspect, who was known to the officer from past interactions, told the officer that he was aware that he would have access to support while in custody. The suspect was transported to cells where he was held for morning court and connection to support services.

Recommended charges include theft, robbery, assault and resisting arrest. The suspect is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

what rubbish.  are we letting junkies and thieves make public policy opinion statements now via police press releases?

 

anyways good on fairway market for holding the guy until police arrived.

 

i suspect if you in the midst of a "days-long period of drug use" you might not have a f&*king clue what services you might be able to get.  because you ain't thinking properly.

Once the man was arrested, police say he thanked the officers for taking him into custody.

 

"The suspect allegedly remarked that he was in the midst of days-long period of drug use and had been unable to successfully access detox and other social supports," VicPD said in a news release on Wednesday.

 

"The suspect, who was known to the officer from past interactions, told the officer that he was aware that he would have access to support while in custody."

 

He was then held in police custody until Tuesday morning when he was presented before the courts and connected with support services.

 

Police recommended a number of charges against him, including theft, robbery, assault and resisting arrest.

🚔Police searching for suspect who assaulted a woman in Gordon Head🚔

Saanich Police are looking for the public’s help in identifying the man responsible for an unprovoked assault on a woman in the 4500 block of Gordon Point Drive in the Gordon Head area.

At around 2:30AM on September 6, 2019, a 24 year old woman was walking towards the beach when an unknown man assaulted her, leaving her with swelling and bruising to her face and body. She fought off the man and ran home, calling police when she got there.

The woman was treated for her injuries by paramedics, and Victim Services was called to provide her with further support.

The suspect man is described as tall with a medium build. He was wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans and looked “homeless”.

Despite extensive canvassing, scene examination and follow-up investigation, police have not yet identified the man responsible. If you have information that can help, call us at 250-475-4321 or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477

It’s also hard to imagine a 24 year old man or woman walking toward a beach at 2:30 AM alone.

Nothing good happens at that time of day.

Such a heartwarming story. So cool that the nice man thanked the officer for arresting him. Funny though, how before being apprehended and cuffed, he was running amok threatening to shiv hapless store employees. But still, there were some important learnings here.

It's in a nice neighbourhood, very quiet area, they have some benches overlooking the water. I could see if you were having a problem and you wanted to quietly work it out you could walk down towards the beach. I see people out walking their dogs at 4am so it's not unheard of to be out at odd hours. Or maybe she got off work at 1am and got home and then walked down to the sea side to smoke a joint.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.
