Richmond County RCMP are asking for the public's help in solving an incident that occurred overnight on December 25 into the early morning of December 26.

Police say they received a report of a fishing boat sunk in the St. Peter's Canal in the village of St. Peter's, at the South end of the Bras d'Or Lake and about an hour from Sydney.

The initial investigation determined the incident is suspicious, and Richmond County RCMP are investigating. The boat has since been removed from the canal and examined.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them at 902-535-2002 or to send tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
