On Aug. 22, Chase RCMP received a call regarding an attempted theft of fuel from a vehicle at Chabellos RV Resort.

The complainant stated a male in his thirties, who was balding and wearing a T-shirt, attempted to syphon fuel from the complainant’s pickup truck.

The complainant grabbed the can and the perpetrator fled the scene in a blue Dodge Ram 1500.

Forensic Identification Services will be assisting the investigation with scene analysis.


On Aug. 22 about 8:30 a.m., Chase RCMP received a call regarding a collision on the Trans-Canada Highway near Elson Road in Sorrento.

The driver, a man from Australia, was driving a rental Nissan Altima when he collided with a concrete highway barrier.

Fire warning

On Aug. 24  about 9 p.m., Chase RCMP received a complaint of a bonfire on a beach in Magna Bay.

A group of youth was having a bonfire at the beach.

The RCMP remind the public that fire bans continue to be in effect, and bonfires are prohibited (except for propane-fueled certified campfire appliances).

Tube trouble

On Aug. 23, a pickup truck travelling on Squilax-Anglemont Road lost an inflatable tube out of the box.  The tube landed in the oncoming lane and struck another vehicle, causing more than $1,000 in damage to the front bumper and headlight.

The RCMP remind drivers to ensure that all loads are properly secured in the truck bed.
