On 16-01-14 at 0021 hrs Bay St George RCMP received a report of a break and enter in progress at the Coleman`s Food Center store in Stephenville Crossing. When police arrived they found a window of the store had been broken out and a number of items stolen.  Although the suspects had departed  responding officers were quickly on their trail.
 
Battling poor weather conditions that threatened to cover in the suspects tracks and conceal evidence, officers were still able to successfully track for approximately 1 1/2 kilometers where they located and arrested 2 male suspects at a residence in Stephenville Crossing. The arrests occurred within 30 minutes of police arriving on the scene. 
 
Police were also able to recover a quantity of the liquor and cigarettes that were stolen from the store.
 
Both males who are in their early twenties are from the Stephenville area. They will appear in court later today to face charges of break and enter, mischief and having their faces covered while committing an indictable offence. One of the males also faces several charges for breaching several different probation orders at the tie of the offence. 
 
1/13/2016 - Public Advisory from RCMP regarding CRA Phone Scams

The Burin Peninsula RCMP wish to advise the General Public of an increase in online, telephone and mail scams. The most recent scam involves people representing themselves as the Canada Revenue Agency and demanding money be paid or the police will be contacted.

 

The RCMP has received multiple calls and complaints over the past week and wish to remind the public that these actions are fraudulent. Some recent telephone scams involve threatening taxpayers or using aggressive and forceful language to scare them into paying fictitious debt to the CRA. Victims receive a phone call from a person claiming to work for the CRA and saying that taxes are owed. The caller requests immediate payment by credit card or convinces the victims to purchase a prepaid credit card and to call back immediately with the information. The taxpayer is often threatened with court charges, jail or deportation.

To help you identify possible scams, use the following guidelines found at

http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/nwsrm/lrts/2015/l150610-eng.html:

The CRA:

  • never requests prepaid credit cards;
  • never asks for information about your passport, health card, or driver`s licence;
  • never shares your taxpayer information with another person, unless you have provided the appropriate authorization; and
  • never leaves personal information on your answering machine or asks you to leave a message containing your personal information on an answering machine.

When in doubt, ask yourself the following:

  • Is there a reason that the CRA may be calling? Do I have a tax balance outstanding?
  • Is the requester asking for information I would not include with my tax return?
  • Is the requester asking for information I know the CRA already has on file for me?
  • How did the requester get my email address or telephone number?
  • Am I confident I know who is asking for the information?

If you get such a call, hang up and report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca or toll free at 1-888-495-8501.

5/8/2015 - Public Advisory Regarding Fraudulent Activity

RNC Release Public Advisory Regarding Fraudulent Activity

(St. John’s, NL), May 4, 2015 – The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) Economic

Crime Unit is issuing a public advisory regarding an e-mail and phone scam whereby offenders

are posing as the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

The RNC Economic Crime Unit want to advise the public to be aware of phishing scams asking

for information such as credit card, bank account, and passport numbers. The CRA would never

ask for this type information by email. Some of these scams ask for this personal information

directly, and others refer the taxpayer to a website resembling the CRA`s, where the person is

asked to verify their identity by entering personal information. Taxpayers should not click on

links included in these emails. Email scams may also contain embedded malicious software that

can harm your computer and put your personal information at risk.

This type of fraud has also been seen in the form of an email. There have been reports of an

email circulating from revenue@cra-arc.gc.ca, subject line: Canada Revenue Agency Tax

Refund. The email claims that the CRA has calculated your fiscal activity and determined that

you are eligible to receive a tax refund. It then asks you to complete the refund form and mail it

to a listed address. This email is a scam used to obtain personal and financial information for

the purposes of identity theft.

The RNC Economic Crime Unit urges the general public to refrain from providing their personal

information to unknown persons online or over the phone and to verify the authenticity of the

person by requesting information by contacting the governmental agency or financial institution

directly. Anyone who receives a suspicious communication should immediately report it to the

Anti-Fraud Center of Canada at http://www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca or call 1-888-

495-8501. Anyone with information regarding this online scam is asked to contact the RNC at

729-8000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can now provide information

4/29/2015 - Tips on Avoiding Phone and Email Scammers
More tips on avoiding phone and email scammers
In a column written by Sharon Elliott, RCMP Senior Safety officer, “ In my last article, I wrote about scammers who are spoofing the caller i.d. feature on our telephones. Many residents in our area have been targeted and have reported receiving a call from what appeared to be a local area number, but upon answering find out the call contains an automated message with an offer involving a hotel stay. Since then, many more residents have reported receiving calls that show their own telephone number appearing in the call display…The same problem can happen in our email accounts. The name of the sender of an email message can be manipulated to make it appear as though the message is coming from a friend, or even include our own names. That’s why it’s important to give your emails a good look over before clicking them open…” Annapolis County Spectator
