A quick response by an Uphill resident resulted in the arrest of two young thieves early Saturday morning.

The Nelson Police Department received a 911 call just before 2 a.m. on Saturday about a  car alarm going off. The caller noted he saw a male running from the scene.

Police attended within minutes and observed a young male running between houses. The area was contained and officers located two youths hiding behind a house.

Both of the young males were arrested for theft from auto under $5,000 and possession of stolen property. They were released to their parents on strict conditions to appear in court in August.

Police say the incident is still under investigation pending further theft from auto reports from the public.


On Saturday afternoon at 4:30 p.m., police were called to a dispute that had a 38-year-old attempting to make contact with his ex-girlfriend despite an order to stay away.

The man showed up to the female’s residence at which point she called police. The accused was arrested for breach of undertaking and also charged with having alcohol in his body. He was remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
