Medical alert device used to report break and enter


January 28, 2019, Little River, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia . . . An 83-year-old woman was in her home on December 9, 2018, when she heard a loud bang shortly before 2 a.m. She then heard people going to the basement of her home, then towards her bedroom. She called out to see who it was, then heard male voices yelling “go, go, go”, and heard multiple people running from her home. The woman was not able to see the numbers on the phone and used her medical alert device to call for help.

Police arrived a short time later and noted that a vehicle had entered several driveways and backed out again. A break and enter was reported in the area later that day.
