Police Beat- March 5

Some of the incidents the Sooke RCMP had to deal with in the past week

  • Mar. 5, 2014 8:00 p.m.

• On Friday, February 28, the RCMP received a call from Victoria General Hospital stating they had a male patient with non-life-threatening stab wounds. He later released himself.

Sooke RCMP, through working together with the Westshore Crime unit, it was determined that an incident took place at Beecher Bay, in a travel trailer parked on the reserve.

A 31 -year-old woman was arrested and taken into custody. She made her first court appearance on March 3, charged with aggravated assault. Both the woman and the man are known to police. A weapon had been located, and the investigation continues.

• On Sunday, March 2 at 6:25 p.m., a 9-1-1 call was made by a woman who stated that she had a gun and had killed three people. She also said she would kill the police if they showed up.

Four police showed up and surrounded her residence. She discharged the handgun into the bushes. The gun, it turns out, was a replica pellet gun, and the claims to have killed people were unsubstantiated.

The officer’s handing of the case, according to Staff Sargent Steve Wright, was professional and textbook. The woman was taken to the hospital and is being treated for mental health issues. Charges are not anticipated at this time.

• On Monday morning, at 8:05 a.m., the RCMP received a call as someone was behaving suspiciously at Ayre Manor, trying the door knobs on the cottages. When the RCMP arrived, the person had broken into a home, much to the awakening surprise of the resident. The 31-year-old suspect locked himself into the bathroom but was apprehended and charged with break and entry, and possession of stolen property. He had a stolen credit card in his possession. He is known to the police. His first court appearance was also on March 3.
