The Annapolis Royal Police Department is investigating two incidents of Mischief and two Break and Enters that occurred during the early morning hours of June 9, 2010, in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. Culprit(s) broke into a Sheriff’s van parked at the Court House and damaged the interior camera system. As well, a pair of bolt cutters were stolen. Also reported damaged was a French heritage public sign at Fort Anne National Historic Site which is next door to the Court House. The same evening, a local garage was broken into, as was as a local antiques store where the bolt cutters believed stolen from the Sheriff’s van were used and recovered. One of the items stolen was an antique, sterling silver “rape whistle” in the form of a crucifix measuring approximately 3” x 3”.
During subsequent canvassing in the area by police, several local business owners and residents commented about a male “drifter” seen in the downtown area the previous day. He was observed at both the garage and the antiques store. He was overheard referring to himself as someone from “English Quebec” (heavy emphasis) who had hiked across Canada seven times.
This individual is described as a white male, 50–60 years of age, approximately 6’0” tall with small upper teeth. He was wearing a ball cap with a large green maple leaf and a large lion belt buckle. He was walking with two wooden walking sticks and was carrying two backpacks.

The suspects used the pry-bars to gain access to the locked counters containing cigarettes, lotto tickets and petty cash. After loading four hockey bags the suspects leave through the same door they entered.
After exiting, the suspects were apparently scared off by something as the four hockey bags were recovered behind a dumpster approx. 20 feet away. All the merchandise was recovered and all but the petty cash was located.

Between July 13, 2010 and July 20, 2010 unknown suspects cut down several neutral power lines from power line poles on MacGee Road, Knoydart, Pictou County. This is not an isolated incident as similar occurrences have been reported in Antigonish and Guysborough Counties. The suspects are using a pole and saw, similar to a pruning saw, and cutting the bottom (neutral) wire from the power line poles. This will not affect power supply although it may disrupt power briefly with a flicker which could provide a time line for an investigator. No suspects have been identified at this time.
