B&E and theft

On Dec. 13, RCMP were called to a break-and-enter to an outbuilding located in the 300 block of Horse Lake Road.

The incident is believed to have occurred the previous weekend.

Drinking and driving

Resisting arrest

On Dec. 11, RCMP attended an industrial address on Exeter Station Road and located a female who was breaching court conditions of failing to provide a fixed address in relation to property offences.
