A $2,500 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in the case of a hit and run in Riverview that left a town worker seriously injured.
At around 30 minutes past midnight on Nov. 11, a Public Works employee with the Town of Riverview was struck by a vehicle as he was working on Buckingham Avenue at the intersection of Killarney Road. The worker sustained very serious injuries.
He spent six weeks in hospital and could require up to a year of physical therapy before he is able to return to work.
The investigators have established that the vehicle involved was a gold 2001 to 2003 Mazda Protegé ES. The driver’s side-view mirror was broken off during the collision. The vehicle left the scene heading north on Buckingham.
Police have received tips but so far the vehicle and the driver have not been located.
“If someone you know has a car that matches that description that was repaired, repainted or kept out of sight since the incident, we would like to hear from you,” says Const. Damien Thériault, spokesman for Codiac RCMP.
Investigators believe the car may not necessarily be in the Moncton area.
Crime Stoppers have approved a $1,000 reward in this case. The Town of Riverview and the unions representing the town workers and firefighters have pledged $500 and $1,000 respectively, bringing the total reward to $2,500.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Codiac RCMP at 857-2400 or Crime Stoppers at www.crimenb.ca or 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

The New Brunswick RCMP's Internet Child Exploitation Unit is asking people to share pictures via their social media networks of a man sought in an ongoing investigation into a sexual assault against a child and the production of child sexual abuse images.
The pictures are captured from a video in which a man is abusing a girl approximately 3 years old. The video first appeared on the Internet in 2005, and since then various police agencies across North America have attempted to identify the man and victim. It is believed the video was produced somewhere in North America and that the girl is likely between 10 and 12 years of age today. The video came to the attention of the New Brunswick RCMP during an unrelated investigation.
"We're not sure if the man or the girl are from New Brunswick but we do know that New Brunswickers have a vast array of connections via social media around the world," says New Brunswick RCMP Media Relations Officer, Corporal Chantal Farrah. "We're asking people to distribute the images of this man via their social media networks and encourage their friends to share it in the hope that someone will know who he is and contact police."
The man is described as Caucasian, approximately 180 to 200 pounds, with brown hair. He has a distinctive dark circular mark on his right forearm and a ring on his left hand.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact their local police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

In an effort to locate two Nova Scotia men wanted by police, New Brunswick Crime Stoppers has pre-approved a $1,000 reward for any information that leads to their arrests, and could pay up to $2,000.
28-year-old Brandon Mombourquette and 26-year-old Andrew Hudder are wanted by police in Nova Scotia for a variety of offences. Police have reason to believe they may be in the southeastern New Brunswick region.

Hudder is 6'2' and weighs 165 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.
Both men are considered armed and dangerous. If you see either of them, do not approach them and call 9-1-1 immediately.
If you have information on their whereabouts, contact Crime Stoppers online at www.crimenb.ca, or 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or the RCMP at 1-888-506-7267 or 506-857-2400 (Codiac RCMP).
Good afternoon. This is Jason Reath, the principal of Riverview High School.
I have one very important item that I would like to communicate to you today.
It has to do with student safety and making good decisions.
As we begin to wind up this school year, we begin to turn our attention to the many celebrations that will take place in and around graduation. Whether it is a grad breakfast, the prom, or graduation itself, we enjoy helping our graduates celebrate their accomplishments in a safe and responsible way.
Safe grad is an annual event we host here at RHS for our graduates immediately following the prom. This fun-filled all night event is supervised by our teachers and provides a safe celebration free of alcohol and other substances. We hope you can appreciate the work of our students and staff in creating this safe event in celebration of graduation and promoting responsible choices.
Unfortunately, some of the events that our graduates plan may not be as safe.
It has come to our attention that some of our students are planning what they call a camp out for tonight, Tuesday, June 4th. I need to be very clear – this is not a school sanctioned activity. I also strongly encourage you to speak with your son or daughter and not allow them to attend such an event. In past years there has been under aged drinking, use of illegal substances and acts of aggression that have been brought to our attention.
This camp out has been planned in advance of our final school wide awards assembly scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. This awards assembly is a special celebration for us as we recognize almost two hundred students who have high academic achievement, shown marked improvement or demonstrated extensive involvement in activities. We will also award our eligible grade 12 students their “Royal R” for extracurricular involvement. A number of guests will be present at this assembly including the RCMP.
Unfortunately, after these camp outs, we have had to send a few students home the next day as they have come to school unkempt, untidy and definitely not themselves. I need to let you know that if any student attends school or a school event under the influence of drugs or alcohol, this will affect their privilege of attending extracurricular events such as the prom and alter how they might participate in graduation.
Thank you for speaking with your son or daughter regarding this concern.
In the end, we want our students to be safe as they celebrate graduation.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
