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.

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.
