Halifax Regional Police is asking for the public’s help with respect to a number of incidents in Dartmouth that may be connected.
Over the last two weeks there have been a number of incidents of mischief in the Nantucket Avenue and Slayter Street areas. Approximately two weeks ago a number of vehicles’ tires were slashed on Slayter Street. A port-a-pottie was also set on fire in that area. Over the weekend a number of vehicles were struck with rocks as they travelled along Nantucket Avenue. A short while later a number of homes in the Slayter Street area had their doors kicked in. At this time there is no indication that the homes were entered, rather these were just senseless acts.
Based on some limited information and the types of crimes occurring police believe that a group of youths is responsible and that at least some of these incidents are connected. Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact police at 490-5016. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or texting a tip - Tip 202 + your message to 274637.
