Further investigation revealed that the party responsible did not have
the mental capacity to appreciate their actions.
Our Police Service in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health
Association will meet with the party involved in a diversion capacity.
Our Police Service will be making use of Auxiliary Officers to return
all mail over the next week. All items of mail had been opened, but all
appear to be intact. Many cheques (Christmas Presents) were located.
We will make our best efforts to return all property. If members of the
community are missing mail that they were expecting, they are welcome to
attend the station and if present will return property. Please have
proper ID available. Community members are asked to refrain from calling
the station regarding this investigation.
