Striking A Balance – Dark days for Clinton

Susan Swan's weekly column of community news and events in Clinton.

Crime in Clinton

On Thursday, Sept. 11, residents of Clinton awoke to find crime scene tape and several RCMP vehicles occupying the Trailer Park at the north end of Clinton.

As happens in all small towns the rumour mill was soon in full swing. Police, including an Investigative Unit were on the scene for several hours and will only confirm that one man was found dead. They are calling it a suspicious death and the investigation continues.

Meanwhile if anyone has any information regarding this incident they are asked to call the Clinton RCMP detachment at 250-459-2221 or call Crime Stoppers.

Vehicles Targeted

Then on Saturday, Sept. 13, several residents in the Kellow Lane area found that vehicles had been broken into, electronics stolen and other articles removed. A badly damaged car was left in a parking lot on the main street and a pick up truck was stolen from a back driveway on Kellow Lane.

Clinton residents are asking, “What’s happening in our safe, quiet, little town?”

Again, if anyone has information please call the Clinton RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
