• Lake Cowichan RCMP say they have made an arrest linked to a grow operation on North Shore Road.

Police raided the home on June 27 and found an undisclosed amount of marijuana plants and associated grow-op paraphernalia.

Sgt. Voller says the man was arrested on an unrelated warrant, and his officers were working with the crown over the weekend to bring the grow-op file before the courts.

• There have been no additional reports of cougar sightings since a group of young men spotted one near A.B. Greenwell Elementary School on Aug. 13, at 2 a.m.

“There have been no reports of dogs or cats missing,” said Voller.

“Usually when we do see [cougars] they are emaciated, but the lads said this one was large and healthy.”

He could not speculate as to whether the cat is still in the area.

Residents are reminded that if they do see a cougar, they should call the RCMP at 250-749-6668, or the local conservation officer at 1-877-952-7277.

• New no parking signs have been installed at Little Beach, and Voller says his officers have begun enforcing them.

These signs have been installed so that emergency crews have access to the area.

“It’s nice to be able to get down there,” said Voller, noting that in the past his officers as well as fire department and other crews have had to deal with vehicles blocking their access during the event of an emergency.
