RCMP would like to advise anyone using the Wreak Cove Road, nearby highland roads and dams that over the winter some placed bolts and nails in the ground sticking up about 3-4 inches above the ground. These now pose a very dangerous hazard to snowmobile or ATV drivers as the snow level drops to puncture a tire or catch a track or ski. Nova Scotia Power is working to locate and remove as the ground thaws.
Police are asking anyone with information about these incidents or the suspect to contact Ingonish Beach RCMP at 902-285-2021 or Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also text TIP202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) or submit a tip by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca. Calls to Crime Stoppers are not taped or traced and if police make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash award.
