The Nakusp Files: RCMP around town
Artifact stolen from museum
A meerschaum pipe was taken from an unlocked display case within the Nakusp Museum sometime during the day on August. Several visitors were in the museum during the day of the suspected theft, but none gave any information about the missing pipe.
The pipe, which was in a black leather case with a burgundy velvet liner, is crafted from hardened sea foam which has the appearance of ivory and is approximately four inches long. Two small beads of serpentine jade grace the center of two carved flowers on the missing pipe.
Outdoor grow op shut down
On September 27, the Nakusp RCMP located an outdoor marihuana grow operation in the Mosquito Creek area. No people were found at the scene, but over 100 marijuana plants were seized and destroyed. The Nakusp RCMP have now seized approximately 14,00 marijuana plants from illegal outdoor marijuana grow operations in the month of September.
Mischief at marina
Sometime between the evening of September 29 and the next morning, somebody entered the marina and set loose three boats. Fortunately, none of the boats sustained any damage and all were recovered in the morning.
Please contact the Nakusp RCMP at (250) 265-3677 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS if you have any information about any of these events.
