Sibling rivalry

Police responded to two separate incidents of disputes between siblings. On Sept. 27, RCMP received a complaint from neighbours about a loud disturbance in the Mt. Shadows area.

Two adult siblings, a brother and a sister who had recently moved in together, were disrupting the peace with a loud argument inside their home. Police have responded to four similar calls to this residence over the past few weeks. The parties involved were previously known to police for minor criminal activity.

In the early hours of Sept. 28, police were called to the Palliser Lodge at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Two brothers from Vancouver Island were intoxicated and fighting with each other. The perceived aggressor was taken into police custody until he sobered up.

Close call on Highway 1

A driver was fortunate to avoid injury after they lost control of their vehicle on the Trans-Canada west of Golden. The driver was alone when they swerved to avoid a deer and ended up in a ditch on the opposite side of the highway. The deer was also unharmed.

Neighbourly dispute

An argument between two neighbours escalated to the point where both parties were charged with uttering threats. The dispute appears to be over a case of property damage, with both sides claiming they have been wronged by the other. A 35 year-old male and a 54 year-old male were the individuals who were charged.
