Two transported to hospital

Two people were taken to hospital on Friday night after an incident involving alcohol and drugs at a Dickey Street apartment complex.

AMHERST – Amherst police are investigating an incident of alcohol and drug use that resulted in two people being taken to hospital on Friday.

Officers went to a Dickey Street apartment complex on reports that a main window to the building entrance had been smashed and blood droplets led from the damage to an apartment inside.

The complainant observed two people lying on the floor inside the unit. Police called EHS after they were unable to rouse one of the individuals inside.

The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Police responded to 39 complaints over the weekend.

A cell phone was reported stolen from a customer at a convenience store on Church Street on Friday night.

The female victim had put her cell phone down while purchasing items. When she went to retrieve it, it was missing.

Police are continuing their investigation.

A gas and dash was reported at a South Albion Street gas station. The vehicle involved was described as a maroon-coloured Toyota.

A 40-year-old man was arrested for impaired driving and impaired operation of a motor vehicle during a traffic stop on Albion Street.

The man will appear in court on July 22.

A water balloon was thrown at a window of a Dickey Street apartment causing it to shatter. A child was in front of the window when it smashed and was unharmed.

Police are investigating.

On Saturday night, a 48-year-old woman reported she had been threatened by another woman at an Albion Street restaurant. The matter was resolved with a warning.

A man was issued a violation ticket for driving while disqualified after a traffic stop on Croft Street.

On Sunday, police responded to complaints that an impaired driver had struck a utility pole on Willow Street. Police later learned that the driver was not impaired. Upon a conversation with the driver, police learned he had been involved in a domestic dispute with another individual. There appears to have been no physical assault during this occurrence, but police are investigating.

A 32-year-old man was charged with breaching his probation after the vehicle he was a passenger in was stopped by an Amherst police officer on Highway 104.

The male had violated his probation by being in presence of another male with a criminal code record.

He will appear in court on July 29.

Anyone with information on any of these offences is asked to call police at 667-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

    What was the license plate # of the maroon Toyota that was used for the Gas and Dash. Surely a good working modern surveillance camera would enable a quick arrest and a deterrent for other like minded. Any station without proper cameras are just asking for trouble these days.

    It is good to see the 30 some officers in Amherst earned their money this weekend. Keep up the good work I feel safer and should sleep better now.
