Another busy weekend for Nelson police.

Vandals hit Nelson schools

The Nelson Police Department is looking for public tips after a weekend vandalism spree at two Uphill schools.

The Nelson Police Department is looking for public tips after a weekend vandalism spree at two Uphill schools.

Overnight between Friday and Saturday, a resident living near Trafalgar Middle School and South Nelson Elementary heard the sound of breaking glass. The next day the resident noted broken glass at both schools and reported it to police

Police say it appears that no entry was gained to either school, but the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone else that might have heard or seen anything during that time is encouraged to contact NPD at 250-354-3919.

 

CULPRITS SOUND ALARM

The vacant Mount St. Francis Hospital was also victim to vandalism on the weekend.

Police say that during the night of Friday and into Saturday, unknown culprits broke into the old hospital. It appears they broke out a glass door and removed a security chain. Once inside the alarm sounded and scared the culprits off.

A property representative came and re-secured the building. The break-in is still under investigation.

 

A BAD TRIP ALL AROUND

On Saturday night, a local male well known to police was detained for causing a disturbance at a restaurant in the 500 block Baker Street at around 7 pm.

The restaurant owner advised he habitually disturbs the customers and he is no longer welcome there. A couple who were there stated they were thinking of giving him a ride out to a party in the Slocan Valley. The male was released to continue his way out there.

At about 4 a.m., a carload of people arrived at NPD headquarters with the male reporting he was at their party scaring the females, claiming to be a rapist. He admittedly was under the influence of LSD and was lodged into cells until sober.

The males transporting him were advised that any criminal allegations would have to be investigated by the RCMP.
