On Tuesday November 27, 2018 at 11:52 AM, Six Nations Police investigated a report of a break and enter at Fire Station #3 on Cayuga Road, Six Nations Territory.

Police attended and spoke with Fire employees who stated they arrived at the station at 11:30 AM to find it broken into, and several pieces of equipment stolen. At the time of the report it was unknown exactly how much the stolen items were valued at.

Police are following some leads and continue to investigate.

The same fire station was damaged in August of 2016, by a vehicle driving into the door. That incident and this break and enter appear to be unrelated, and are being treated as two isolated incidents.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to please contact the Six Nations Police at 519-445-2811 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or www.crimestoppers-brant.ca

As the police service we are aware of Six Nations Councils efforts to exercise jurisdiction to develop a law, in this area, that promotes economic development while at the same time protecting the health and safety of our people.

Any cannabis regime, from cultivating to distributing to ultimately selling has to be strictly regulated.  While cannabis may be legal as of October 17th, we, as a community safety.  As the police service we will enforce regulations or laws that allow us to keep our children safe, keep our roadways safe, promote a healthy community and prevent organized crime elements from taking advantage of any inherent right to self government we exercise in this area.

It is encouraging to see Council taking the time to ensure they get the proposed Cannabis Control Law right.  For the community as a whole to enjoy any socio-economic development from this venture the proposed law must be enforceable from the police perspective.

As of October 17th we will be enforcing all Provincial and Federal Regulations pertaining to regulatory, licensing and compliance requirements, until such time that Six Nations Cannabis Control Law is enacted.
