Man jailed for beating girlfriend: Offender threatened her from jail so she wouldn...
A Moncton man was sentenced to two years in prison yesterday for offences that included choking his girlfriend until she became unconscious. Robert Gallivan Ross, 27, previously pleaded guilty to several charges, including assaulting Melissa Bastarache, attempting to obstruct justice, theft, escaping lawful custody and breaches of court orders. He was in Moncton provincial court for sentencing yesterday, and Judge Irwin Lampert followed a joint recommendation for a two-year prison term. Even Gallivan was in favour of two years in a federal prison, saying he's been dealing with his drug problem for 15 years, so he wants to access programs in the federal system that will help him. Crown prosecutor Mario Cormier told the court Codiac RCMP were called to a domestic incident on Oct. 13, involving Ross and his then-girlfriend Bastarache. He was high on drugs and had smashed a phone and kicked out a window in the residence. He pushed and punched the woman, grabbed her by the hair and threw her to the floor. Cormier said Ross covered her mouth so she couldn't scream and choked her unconscious. The victim was left with bruises on her face and marks on her neck. Cormier said the next day, Ross called Bastarache from the jail and threatened her so she wouldn't go ahead with the charges. He was eventually released on conditions after a bail hearing, but when police checked to see if he was obeying his curfew, he was not at home. On Jan. 7, Codiac RCMP received a call about a man stealing a $210 electric toothbrush from the Trinity Drive Superstore. When officers viewed the surveillance video, they recognized Ross. He was arrested in another store, but at his request the police officer led him out without handcuffs. Ross took off the moment he was outside, but the Mountie caught him.

UdeM student dies in single-vehicle accident: UdeM identifies man as Julien Daigle...
A 21-year-old man is dead after a car accident in Moncton early yesterday morning. Shortly after 2:15 a.m., Codiac Regional RCMP responded to a single-vehicle accident on Morton Avenue. RCMP say the vehicle was travelling westbound near Crowley Farm Road when it drifted off the road and collided with a utility pole. Police have not released the name of the deceased, but l'Université de Moncton issued a press release yesterday afternoon identifying the man as Julien Daigle of Baie Sainte-Anne, a fourth-year student in the civil engineering program at the Moncton campus. The university said they were saddened to learn of Daigle's death and the flags at the school's three campuses will be flown at half-mast until after his funeral. Police report the man died at the scene and was the only person in the vehicle. The preliminary investigation shows speed was a contributing factor and the driver was not wearing his seatbelt. The investigation is ongoing. Platoon Chief Rob Brine and the Moncton Fire Department were called to the scene of the accident at 2:21 a.m.

"A lone suspect entered the store and demanded money from the female employee," said Const. Damien Theriault. No weapon was shown and the robber fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. Police arrested Cormier approximately an hour and a half later.

Riverview Tims a real 'drive-thru'
The Tim Hortons coffee shop on Findlay Boulevard in Riverview became a real "drive-thru" Saturday as a car smashed through a window and brick wall. Const. Damien Theriault of the Codiac Regional RCMP said the accident occurred at 5:25 p.m. on Saturday. He said the driver of a vehicle accelerated instead of braking when he felt his vehicle move forward after he thought he had put it into park. There were no injuries. No charges are expected. The Tim Hortons on Findlay and Whitepine Road is next to a Needs store with gas bar. The car drove through a brick wall and window in front of a marked handicapped parking spot. There are tables directly on the other side of the wall and window.
