Sometime between May 3 and 6 a break in occurred at the Nelson Hydro Power Plant at 5010 Blewett Road. Locks were cut and the thieves stole a significant amount of copper wiring along with other accessories. The theft is under investigation.

A 50-year-old male is facing shoplifting charges resulting from an incident at a local grocery store. The male was heavily intoxicated and verbally abusive towards both police and store staff. The male was held for being intoxicated in a public place and also faces charges of theft.

A 55-year-old male is facing breach of conditions charges after being arrested outside of the Nelson Court House on May 7. The Nelson sheriff observed the male in a vehicle across from the courthouse violating his court-imposed conditions. Charges are pending.

On May 9, during a routine traffic stop, a man was found to have outstanding BC-wide criminal warrants. During the subsequent arrest, the man was found to be in possession of brass knuckles, which are a prohibited weapon and resulted in further charges above the existing warrants. The male is currently in police custody awaiting a court hearing.
