A man traveling with the carnival had a close call earlier this week when he was cleaning battery terminals on his motorhome with gasoline from a generator, which was stored inside it. After cleaning the terminals, the man reconnected the battery wires, which sparked and ignited the fuel. The male called 911 and the Nelson Police and fire department contained the fire to the motorhome, which was destroyed in the fire. The male escaped unharmed.
On Wednesday a young male attempted to fraudulently return items he did not purchase at the wholesale club. When confronted by staff it is said that he was verbally abusive to them and fled the area. The Nelson Police Department found him a short time later and he is scheduled to appear in Nelson Courts for fraud and causing a disturbance.
Effective June 1, the Province will be implementing new motorcycle regulations. Nelson Police are encouraging all riders to familiarize themselves with these new rules to ensure they are in compliance with them. The goal of these new regulations is to reduce the number of fatal injuries from crashes involving motorcycles.
