The Happy Valley-Goose Bay RCMP were kept busy over the Labour Day weekend.
Early Saturday morning, Aug. 30, at approximately 4 a.m., RCMP conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on Brett Street. As a result of this traffic stop and subsequent investigation, a 24-year old male from the community was arrested for impaired driving.
The male will be appearing in provincial court in Happy Valley-Goose Bay on Oct. 7, where he will be facing a charge of impaired operation of a motor vehicle and impaired operation of a motor vehicle while over 80 mg.
The RCMP would like to remind the public if you are going to consume alcoholic beverages, be responsible and don't drink and drive. Make arrangements for a taxi or a designated driver and arrive home safely.
Break and enter
Retuning to the scene of the crime was not a smart idea for a man in Happy Valley-Goose Bay on Aug. 29, when RCMP received a complaint of a possible break and enter.
A concerned neighbour phoned police after hearing a loud noise coming from the residence next door. At approximately 10:40 p.m., RCMP confirmed that a residence on White Crescent had been broken into. Police found several items inside the home that they believed the suspect had left.
A short time later, while RCMP officers were still on scene investigating, a 19-year old male returned to the residence in an attempt to retrieve the items left inside.
The male was arrested for mischief, being unlawfully in a dwelling and three counts of breaching his undertaking.
The male was remanded into custody and was due to appear in provincial court on Sept 2.
