The week before Christmas was another busy one for the Nelson Police Department.

On December 20 the police received a call for service to a residence for a break and enter that occurred overnight. It was determined that offender(s) had gone through the complainant’s unlocked vehicle and then entered the complainant’s unlocked residence removing a jacket, wallet, and cash.  The investigation is ongoing at this time and the Nelson police is asking anyone with information to contact the department or Crime Stoppers.

That same day, police received a call for service to Trafalgar Middle School for a break and enter.  The break and enter is believed to have occurred between December 19 and 20.

Offender(s) forced entry and accessed the school causing approximately $500 in damage. Investigation is ongoing and the Nelson Police Department is asking anyone with information to contact the Nelson Police Department or Crime Stoppers.

On December 22 the police, Nelson Fire Department, and Emergency Health Services attended a motor vehicle accident on Vernon Street and  Stanley Street.

It was determined that a pedestrian was struck in the crosswalk by a slow moving motor vehicle causing non-life threatening injuries. The pedestrian was transported to hospital for treatment and it is believed that low light conditions played a significant role in this incident. The Nelson Police Department would like to remind pedestrians during this busy season to ensure they wear high visibility or bright clothing to better seen by motorists at night.
