Boom of presences in the three days of Easter and Easter in Bra.

Violent clash the other afternoon in via Don Orione in Bra where, at the intersection with via Don Cremaschi, a Fiat Panda and a Fiat Grande Punto collided. On the spot two ambulances of the sanitary emergency, the fire brigade of the braidese detachment and two first-aid patrols of the municipal police intervened to perform the surveys and ascertain the responsibilities. Following the collision the Fiat Punto ended up against the fence of a nearby house, damaging it. Fortunately, only minor consequences for the driver and the passenger, a child of 2 years, who were on board the Panda: the use of safety belts and devices for child restraints have averted serious injuries to the two occupants of the vehicle. Traffic in the area has suffered strong slowdowns for over an hour. (Municipal police)

After a police investigation, the agents of the Municipal Police Command have referred a street vendor for theft in a state of freedom. The young man, already with specific police records, in compliance with the documents and in possession of a traveling trade license issued by the municipality of Turin, after trying in vain the sale of handkerchiefs to a braidese, has taken possession of the money that the victim had in the wallet, and then disappear quickly. The victim, in the light of what happened, presented a formal complaint in the Command of via Moffa di Lisio: the agents of Braida, after checking the facts and carried out accurate investigations, went back to the author of the theft which, after being identified, was convened in the Offices of the Command for the drafting of the formal acts.
