Nelson police investigating gunpoint robbery in Uphill

Police have also been busy with bike and motorbike thefts.

On Sunday at 11 p.m. police received a 911 call from a man who reported he had just been robbed at gunpoint in the Uphill area of Nelson. He said the offenders were also following him in a vehicle.

The following morning police located the suspect vehicle and the stolen property in another community.

Possible suspects have been identified and the investigation is ongoing.

Bike thief caught

Last Friday at about 6:30 p.m. the Nelson police were called to the Lakeside soccer field where a drunk man was yelling and swearing at people.

The 53-year-old local is known to police. He was arrested for causing a disturbance, held until sober, and released the following morning with a court date and conditions to stay out of the park and not consume liquor.

On Monday, Nelson police received another complaint about the same man. They say he stole a bike from the same park he was arrested in days before.

While officers were interviewing the bike owner, the suspect happened upon them riding the stolen bike. He was found to be drunk and was arrested for breaching the conditions of his previous release and for stealing the bike.

Motorbike stolen

On Saturday a man reported sometime had stolen his motorbike from Lakeside Drive. It had been parked there displayed for sale and during the night someone either rode off on it or loaded it into a truck.

The motorbike is a blue Suzuki dirt bike. The Nelson Police Department is investigating.
