Update: RCMP investigating ATV incident, seeking public assistance

Cumberland District RCMP would like to provide an update on their request for assistance last week in an investigation into an ATV incident.


An RCMP officer on patrol in Springhill yesterday noticed an ATV travelling on McGee St near Cowan St. He conducted a tr­affic stop with the ATV because it was not registered. Upon further investigation the RCMP officer determined this was the same ATV and driv­er that failed to st­op for him last week. The driver was arr­ested without incide­nt and is facing cha­rges of Dangerous Op­eration of a Motor Vehicle, Fail to Comp­ly with a Probation Order, and Flight fr­om Police under the Criminal Code. He is also facing an addi­tional charge of Dri­ving while Revoked under the Motor Vehic­le Act.


There was a female passenger on the ATV but she was not invo­lved in the offence. The ATV was seized and towed from the scene.


Cumberland District RCMP would like to thank the public for the tips provided ab­out this incident.


The 28-year-old man from Springhill is scheduled to appear in Amherst Provincial Court on September 25, 2017.
