Nelson police extremely busy with calls about bears

Police continue to receive many bear-related calls.

This year is continuing to be “extremely busy” for police with bear-related calls, says the Nelson Police Department. On June 9, a bear was spotted in the area around the south side of the Nelson Bridge.

“This bear was described as young and unhealthy looking and had been spotted on numerous occasions,” says a release issued by police.

On June 10, a bear was also observed at Rosemont School but police weren’t able to locate it.

 

The Nelson Police Department called twice to a local liquor store on Friday.

At about 5 p.m. on June 7, officers responded to the store when a known suspect was trying to get away with a concealed bottle of liquor.

Officers apprehended a 28-year-old male soon after that. He will face theft charges in court.

An hour after the theft, the same liquor store reported a fraud. A 19-year-old female was caught and will face fraud charges in court.

 

Nelson Police Department report a busy Friday and Saturday nights in the Heritage City. Disturbances outside local bars and noisy parties were the cause.

At 12:25 a.m. on June 8 staff at a bar witnessed a vehicle strike the corner of a building in the 300 block of Baker Street. The driver continued on.

A nearby police officer was able to stop the vehicle before it left the area and the driver failed a roadside screening test and was issued a 90-day driving prohibition.

Police also responded to several disturbances and fights breaking out soon after bar closing time. Two males were arrested for being intoxicated in public
