Twelve mischief cases, each having to do with intoxicated people causing issues at homes, were phoned in, along with other assorted calls of telephone fraud, fire protection, family relations, child welfare and false alarms.

Most of the detachment’s calls came in from the greater Denare Beach region, with 51 total calls during December. A total of 36 calls were reported from the Amisk Lake reserve. Most were mischief calls, all involving intoxicated people at residences except one. The outlying case involved a broken iPad. Officers determined that the incident was not a police matter.

One assault call came in from Amisk Lake, involving a man hitting another man. The victim did not press charges.

Cases from the Denare Beach municipality included two assaults. One, according to the RCMP report, “involved an individual being hit with a large snowball.”

“The matter was not random,” read the report.

The other assault from Denare Beach was deemed by officers to be an issue of an individual’s mental health. RCMP plan to proceed with the incident accordingly.

One break-and-enter call was filed involving a garage that had been broken into. No property was reported taken from the site.

A single call, relating to a mischief matter and an argument, came in from Sturgeon Landing. One individual was found by officers and taken to cells.
