“The female was released on strict conditions later that day after sitting in front of a Judicial Justice,” Falcone explained in the media release.
“At approximately 10 p.m. on June 21, 2017, the female was arrested for breaching her condition for being back in the 400 block of Baker Street.”

Another Cougar Sighting, this time in Fairview
Nelson Police Department received a call late Wednesday (June 21) between 11-12 p.m., of a possible cougar sighting in the area of 1300 block of Bealby Road.
Falcone said NPD would like to remind the public that if you come into contact with a cougar that does not run away, stay calm, stand your ground and do not back down. Back away slowly if possible and when safe to do so.
“Pick up children, but DO NOT BEND DOWN, TURN YOUR BACK OR RUN. Running triggers an innate predatory response in cougars which could lead to an attack,” he said.
“Raise your voice and speak firmly. Raise your arms to make yourself look larger, clap your hands, and throw something you might have in your hands. Do not bend down to pick up any items to throw. This action may trigger a pounce response in a cougar.”
Falcone said resident should report any cougar sightings to the RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277 or the Nelson Police Department at 250-354-3919.
