Rocks being thrown from overpass causing damage

December 27, 2021, Sutherland Lake, Nova Scotia…Cumberland County District RCMP is asking for assistance from the public after rocks were thrown from an overpass on to passing vehicles.

Just after 8 p.m. on Sunday, December 26, Oxford RCMP received a 911 call in relation to rocks being thrown from the overpass on Hwy. 104 near Sutherland Lake. No damage was reported as the rocks may have missed the passing vehicles. A group of 4 or 5 individuals were observed by motorists on the overpass at the time. Again, at approximately 11:20 p.m. on the same overpass, police were called after a vehicle was struck by rocks that were thrown from the overpass. Immediate response by police in both incidents did not result in locating any suspects.

Although no one was injured, the damage was significant and the outcome could have been much worse.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone who has information or may have witnessed these incidents is asked to call Oxford RCMP at 902-447-2525. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submit a secure web tip at, or use the P3 Tips App.
