Two men from Cape Breton have been fined for getting too close while in the process of allegedly stealing a TV.
Cape Breton Regional Police responded to a reported theft from the Superstore in Glace Bay on Friday.
Officers charged a 41-year-old man from River Ryan and a 56-year-old man from New Waterford with theft.
They also issued each man a ticket under the Health Protection Act for failing to self-isolate from one another, which now carries a fine of $2,000.
Under current Public Health restrictions, residents can only come in close contact with their household, or allow one or two others in their bubble if they are a small household.
Man fined for leaving own municipality
On Sunday, officers also responded to a George Street address in Sydney where a woman was complaining of an unwanted male, whom she knew, "causing mischief" at her home.
Officers found a 48-year-old man from Victoria County nearby.
He was charged with public intoxication and fined $697.50 for failing to comply with the Emergency Management Act, which bans any non-essential travel outside one's own municipality.
Two people ticketed in Halifax
In the Halifax area, police also issued three tickets last week in two separate incidents.
Officers were called to a Bedford apartment building Friday morning after a report that a man was not following provincial regulations while in the public areas of the complex.
A 40-year-old Bedford man was ticketed for not wearing a mask, which carries a fine of $2,000.
Halifax Regional Police also fined the same teenager twice.
On Friday, police ticketed a 17-year-old for not self-isolating as required. The same youth was ticketed again Sunday for the same reason. Both tickets carry fines of $2,000.
