Police blotter: Trouble at the Nelson mall

Police arrested two men, in separate incidents, for causing a disturbance at Chahko Mika Mall

Police were kept busy responding to disturbances at Chahko Mika Mall on Thursday.

Officers made two separate trips to the mall, making single arrests on each call.

First police arrested a 34-year-old intoxicated male who was screaming and swearing at people outside Save on Foods around 2:30 p.m.

Later, then went back and found a 23-year-old, possibly under the influence of street drugs, making a scene in the food court around 6:45 p.m.

Both men were held by police until sober and charged with disturbing the peace. Neither are allowed back on mall property.


Intoxication was also the cause of a Wednesday evening arrest on Government Road.

At about 5:30 p.m. a man staggered across the road, narrowly missing a sheriff’s transport vehicle that happened to be driving by at the time. The man was known to police and sheriffs, and he was due to appear in court in the near future for charges stemming from alcohol abuse.

The sheriff stayed with the man until Nelson police arrived to transport him to the station, where he was held until a court appearance Friday.
