SIDNEY — Between Friday, March 11 and Tuesday, March 15, Sidney North Saanich RCMP responded to 80 calls for service.

Of note:

 

• On March 11, a Sidney North Saanich RCMP officer fixed a traffic light at the corner of Fifth and Beacon in Sidney that was facing the wrong way and causing confusion to drivers.

It’s not known how the light got turned around but it is certainly a dangerous thing to have done as it could have caused an accident. It’s not known how long the light was turned.

 

• On March 11 at 9:55 p.m., Sidney North Saanich RCMP responded to a break and enter at a residence on Finch Place in Sidney.

The homeowner had only been away from the residence for a few hours.

Anyone who might have observed any suspicious activity in the area are asked to call the Sidney North Saanich RCMP.

 

• On March 12 at 3:15 p.m., Sidney North Saanich RCMP, with the assistance of the Central Saanich Police, responded to a report of females fighting outside the band office on the Tsawout First Nation.

All parties had dispersed prior to police arrival.

The two female subjects involved (both youths) were later spoken to; no injuries had resulted and it appears alcohol was a factor.

 

• On March 12 at 4:30 p.m., police received a call about a motorcycle rider that had fallen off their bike at the McTavish Road interchange.

The motorcyclist could not be located.

 

• On March 13, Sidney North Saanich RCMP responded to a collision at the McTavish interchange roundabouts.

A southbound vehicle coming from the direction of the airport failed to yield and struck a vehicle already in the intersection.

Minor injuries and both vehicles were towed.

 

• On March 14 at 11:30 a.m. Sidney North Saanich RCMP responded to a similar roundabout incident that occurred in the same fashion as the one mentioned above.

No charges and vehicles were not towed.

 

• On Saturday, March 12, police conducted two separate road checks and took three impaired drivers off the road.
