Rothesay Regional Police were kept busy yesterday evening catching a man in the Quispamsis area who was breaking into vehicles.

People living nearby called in to report the incident and the man will attend a court hearing at a later date.

Sergeant Mike Dickson says it was nice to see that the vehicles in question were locked.

Police are also asking for the public's help to locate ball field fencing that went missing Thursday evening.

Two-hundred feet of wire-mesh fencing at the Centennial Ball field has been taken.

Sergeant Dickson says the fencing has a $2500 value and asks the public to call the police or crime stoppers if they have any information.

Act of vandalism turns positive

A negative act of vandalism at the North End Park this week has ended as a positive for the area.

Saint John Portland MLA Trevor Holder says Roberston Square was spray-painted on Wednesday night but the community rallied together and found those responsible.

Holder tells CHSJ News that Tammy Calvin of O.N.E. Change was a big part of the fix.

Holder says it reminds him of when the North End Community Policing office was set on fire a few years but, it didn't set the community back, it galvanized them to move forward.
