Creston RCMP responded to 65 calls from Feb. 20-26, Staff Sgt. Bob Gollan said on Feb. 27.

February 20

•When police were called to investigate a suspicious item on the railroad tracks near Cook Street, a piece of Styrofoam was found, weighted down by rocks. After checking it visually to ensure it didn’t contain any sort of explosive device, Gollan sent other RCMP members for cover behind a police car, then kicked it, presumably not with the leg which had recent knee replacement surgery. He lived to tell the story.

•A Hillside Street resident turned in some ammunition to be destroyed.

•Police are investigating an assault complaint at Prince Charles Secondary School.

•A television was stolen during a break-in at a motel on Highway 3.

•No mischief was noted when police checked on a group of youths reported to be hanging out late in the evening near Millennium Park.
