On September 6, 2017, at approximately 2:00 p.m., RCMP responded to a report of a hit and run which occurred in the parking lot of Rideout's Convenience in Springdale. The hit and run resulted in damages to a single vehicle, estimated at over $4000.00.
In a separate incident the following week, police responded to a break and enter at Butt's Esso Gas Station at Springdale Junction on the TCH. The incident occurred on September 13, 2017, at approximately 9:30 a.m. The investigation revealed the suspects attempted to gain entry through a rear door of the business.
