Hit & Run, Weapons Charges, Drugs Found & Other Tales From The SJPD

Police were kept busy over the past 24 hours with 89 calls for service.

 There was a noon-hour hit and run on Watson Street in which a vehicle reported to be a blue-grey Chevy hit a building and then took off.

As well, Sergeant Jay Henderson explains at 1:10 police responded to a break and enter in progress on Orchid  Street on the West Side. They surrounded the residence while the others looked inside--and a 35 year old and a 29 year old man were found inside the home hiding.

There were two more B&Es on Ellerdale Street and a vacant home on Saddlebrook Court. 

At 7pm, a 26 year old man and woman were arrested on Summer Street North after a raid for illegal weapons. They're expected to appear in court at a later date--as are a 35 year old man and a 26 year old woman who were found with pills and a prohibited weapon after a traffic stop on Douglas Avenue. 

Anyone who has any information is asked to contact the Saint John Police Force at 648-3333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
