Nelson police recovered a stolen car last week in Rosemont — but discovered the interior had been set on fire. They didn’t identify the make or model or indicate where it was stolen from.

They ask anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the 400 block of West Beasley Street to contact them.

Don’t mess with the bylaw officer

A man breaking the downtown dog bylaw was warned last week after failing to produce ID for a bylaw officer.

Police were called after he refused to identify himself and walked away. Officers located him and arrested him for obstructing a peace officer.

He was let go after they warned him that failing to produce identification for a peace officer is a crime. He was ticketed for having dogs in a restricted zone.

Man injured intervening in fight

About 2 a.m. Saturday a fight broke out in the 700 block of Vernon Street between two women. Police say as one man got involved, another took offence and assaulted him. Staff at the nearby pub called police.

The victim had a swollen and cut face, while everyone else was gone by the time officers arrived. Witnesses knew the offender. The investigation is ongoing.

Booze leads to girl’s arrest

A girl was arrested early Friday in the 400 block of Stanley Street after police spotted her with open liquor.

Sgt. Paul Bayes says after asking for her name, the officer “felt things were not adding up” so he and others continued to question her identity while searching police computer systems.

Bayes says they discovered she was lying to them. She was arrested for obstructing a police officer and multiple liquor offences and later released but faces “significant” fines

“The arresting officer spent some time with her and explained the consequences of attempting to obstruct a police officer in the course of his duties,” Bayes said.
