On July 26th, 2018, the Kings District RCMP responded to a complaint of a vehicle abandoned on a sand dune located at the end of MacLaren Road, in Cable Head West. The RCMP supervised the safe removal and continued the investigation as to how the vehicle became stuck on the environmentally sensitive area.
Through investigation the Kings District RCMP were able to identify the owner and the driver of the vehicle. Today, August 10th, 2018, charges were laid against the driver for offences from the Environmental Protection Act and Highway Traffic Act.
The RCMP would like remind the public to be mindful of environmentally sensitive areas, and park in designated parking areas away from sand dunes.
