A man is recovering from injuries after falling from a bridge in the village last week.

Police were asked to assist paramedics at 10:40 p.m. on Nov. 25 with a male who dropped approximately six metres from a bridge in the area of Village Gate Boulevard. When police arrived, the male was being treated by first responders for non-life threatening injuries.

Suspect arrested for breaking into village business

A man is facing charges after he reportedly broke into a village business this week.

Just before 3 a.m. on Nov. 28, police were tipped off to the break-and-enter to a business in the 4200 block of Mountain Square. Police arrived on the scene to find the store's window had been smashed.

Upon reviewing surveillance footage, Mounties noticed two males inside the business at the time of the incident.

At 5:30 a.m., police responded to a separate call and learned the male they were dealing with was one of the suspects from the break-in only hours earlier.
