Fireworks Result In Strong Police Response

Report of shots fired leads to heavy police presence

An adult male who decided to set off some fireworks in the middle of the day did not get the response he expected when numerous police officers responded to a report of possible shots fired.

Shortly before 1 pm on Monday January 25, Nanaimo RCMP was alerted by a nearby resident who reported hearing what sounded like rapid gun fire, in the south end of Haliburton St. The caller was adamant the sound did not come from a vehicle backfiring or heavy equipment. Given the time of the day and persistence of the caller, numerous police officers attended.

Fortunately the situation was resolved and the person responsible for setting off the fireworks was located. The male showed the officers a box of 16 spent fireworks called Redneck Ruckus. The investigator then spent a few minutes with him pointing out the consequences his actions.
