Halloween surprisingly quiet

Police say there was little to distinguish action from any normal light

Rainy weather may not have been ideal for trick-or-treaters Wednesday night, but it proved a boon to the Oceanside RCMP.

Corporal Jesse Foreman said this year’s Halloween night was surprisingly quiet. “Halloween was really uneventful,” he said. “There were very few incidents and problems, so we’re really happy about that.”

Foreman said police responded to a call about graffiti vandalism in Parksville and were able to make an arrest, but he said there was virtually no difference between Halloween night and any other night.
