Nelson Police are investigated a string of minor robberies in Fairview.

Culprit breaks into a dozen Fairview cars

The Nelson Police have recovered some of the stolen property and are currently trying to identify the culprit.

An unknown culprit repeatedly broke into a dozen cars in the Fairview area at some point during the night of September 10 and 11.

The Nelson Police have recovered some of the stolen property and are currently attempting to identify a suspect.

The Nelson Police reminded residents to move all valuables from their vehicles and lock them. Each of the thefts would have been prevented if these simple steps had been taken.

On Septemer 12 the Nelson Police were called to an Uphill house party that was disturbing the neighbourhood. Approximately 75 underaged party-goers were congregating on neighbors’ lawns. One severely intoxicated youth required medical attention. The BC Ambulance service came and took care of the youth while the police attended.

Unfortunately for the neighbourhood, the youths continued to party, roaming around the area.

For those that wish to host these parties  there are fines under the local bylaw for the excessive noise that start at $100 and can range up to $2000.

Nelson Police are still investigating and the homeowners where the party took place will be spoken to.
