The other report came on Sunday, that between 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sunday, someone took a white Mercury inflatable dinghy powered by a Mercury 20-horsepower outboard motor from 3400-block of Ripon Road. The value is believed to be approximately $15,000.

The dinghy bears the serial number C26291BC.

On Friday, Sept. 27, police stopped a vehicle on Cadboro Bay Road at Bowker Avenue. The driver showed signs of consuming liquor and blew two breath samples – both resulting in a fail.

The driver was issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition and their vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

On Saturday, police were notified that a wallet was stolen overnight from a car in the 2000-block of Carrick Street.
