Golden RCMP on the lookout for thieves

RCMP in Golden have been kept busy looking for people involved in a break and enter in the community

A report was made to the Golden/Field RCMP detachment about a break and enter which happened on Dec. 13 at approximately 12:15 p.m.

A Golden resident was going to their parents’ summer home on Quartz Crescent when they noticed something was out of place.

The resident was going to the house to wrap Christmas presents, but when she pulled into the driveway she noticed a vehicle, which she did not recognize, at the house. The vehicle was a 2007, black, Dodge Ram 4-door pick up.

A female was spotted in the passenger seat. The resident got out of her vehicle and started to walk towards the house when a male ran from the house carrying a number of things.

The resident yelled at the male who jumped into his vehicle with the items and drove away.

The person who was going to the house then got into her car and followed the vehicle from the location until it got near the RCMP detachment on the highway.

When the vehicle carrying the two people continued heading west on Highway 1, the local resident went to the detachment and reported the incident.

RCMP had a description of the vehicle and a licence plate number and immediately dispatched RCMP members after the vehicle and then contacted a representative at the scales west of Golden on the highway. It was confirmed a vehicle like the one described had passed by the scales.

RCMP then contacted Revelstoke RCMP who dispatched two of their own members towards the Rogers Pass to attempt to locate the vehicle.

RCMP did an extensive search of the highway and side roads over a number of hours but did not locate the vehicle.

The vehicle was reported to be spotted a number of times during the afternoon but the RCMP did not find it.

Meanwhile at the detachment, it was determined the ordinal licence plate was not correct so staff started to narrow down possible matches of the make and model of the vehicle and other information.

RCMP found a vehicle and identified a suspect out of Calgary, and with the help of RCMP in Calgary learned they have a history of the suspect.

On Dec. 14 it was reported to police that the vehicle involved in the break-in had been spotted in a yard on Lafontaine Road.

After an extensive search RCMP determined the vehicle, if it had been there, was no longer in the area.

RCMP are still continuing the investigation with other detachments, working together to solve the crime and find the people involved in the crime.
