Tofino police are asking for the public’s help with several ongoing theft investigations.

Tofino’s Trilogy Fish Company reported a break-in on July 2 that is believed to have occurred overnight, according to Cpl. Therese Cochlin who said money was stolen from the business and damage was done to the property.

On July 6, a Chesterman Beach area resident reported several items had been stolen from his property over a roughly three-week period in June including a surfboard, a mountain bike and fishing gear.

Anyone with information about either of these thefts is encouraged to contact the Tofino RCMP at 250-725-3242 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Ahousaht RCMP responded to thefts from three different moored vessels on July 16, according to Cochlin.

Anyone with information about these thefts is encouraged to contact the Ahousaht RCMP at 250-670-9612.

Bicyclist injured on MUP

A cyclist suffered a head injury after falling from her bike on July 15.

Tofino RCMP responded to the scene around 7:30 p.m. along with BC Ambulance personnel and members of the Tofino Volunteer Fire Department, according to Cpl. Cochlin.

“The female reportedly lost control of her bike and suffered a head injury,” Cochlin said.

“The cyclist was, unfortunately, not wearing a helmet.”

Man faces several charges after arrest

A man who had reportedly been harassing a group of people is facing multiple charges after allegedly being found in possession of narcotics upon his arrest.

A group of four people walked into the Tofino RCMP detachment on July 1 to report a man had been harassing them and was in possession of a knife that was partially visible in his pocket, according to Cpl. Cochlin.

She said police located the man and arrested him after a short scuffle.

“The male resisted and a struggle ensued with police gaining control and escorting him to jail,” Cochlin said.

“The male was also in possession of a quantity of drugs and is facing multiple charges relating to the incident.”
