A 17-year old Corner Brook man was charged with mischief on Friday morning after the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary responded to a report of threats and property damage in the Curling area that was received at 7:38 a.m.

The man allegedly left the scene on foot and the RNC’s K9 unit was called in to assist in locating him.

He was released from police custody and will appear in provincial court at a later date.

That call was one of 47 that the RNC responded to in the 24-hour period that ended at 5 a.m. on Saturday.

Among the other calls was a 7:43 a.m. report of a theft from a vehicle that occurred sometime overnight in the West Street area. A number of items and an undisclosed amount of money were reported missing.

The K9 unit also assisted in this call and a number of the items which were reported missing were located in a nearby wooded area.  

At approximately 11:30 p.m. patrol services responded to a hit and run collision on Sunnyslope Drive. An unknown vehicle struck a parked car and left the area.

Damage to the parked vehicle was moderate, and there was nobody inside the parked vehicle. The investigation into this collision is ongoing.

 And at 3 a.m. patrol services detained an inebriated 47-year-old-man from Halfway Point under the provisions of the Detention of Intoxicated Persons Act. He was released without any charges in the morning when he sobered up.
