Male found dead on Moonraker trails

The body of a 38 year old Golden resident was discovered on July 2 along the Moonraker trails.

CP trespasser

On June 28, Golden RCMP responded to a reported trespassing on the CP rail property at 3 a.m.. The train master had noted a male carrying a guitar case at the tail end of the train.  The male was located and identified as a Grand Forks resident.  He was escorted off the property.

Incident at local motel

Shortly after 1 a.m, on June 29, a male arrived at a local motel and asked to see one of the rooms.  He was taken to view the room and promptly shut the door locking himself inside.  The clerk called police explaining that it was not unusual for a person to see the room before paying but the male had locked himself inside without paying and was refusing to open the door.  When police arrived and entered the room the male had already departed. The bedding was found disturbed but no other damage was noted.

Bar fight

Also on June 29, police responded to a disturbance at a local pub at 2 a.m..  It was reported that six males were fighting outside the establishment.  When officers arrived they located one male who was bleeding from his nose.  Witnesses described a verbal confrontation between two males, one of whom was dressed as a pirate.  It was reported that the pirate sucker punched the other male resulting in the bloody nose.  With the situation diffused the person involved quickly decided it was best to make their way home and call it a night.  No charges were laid.

Dog in danger

Police responded to a reported dog in distress which had been left inside a parked vehicle on July 1.  Police located the vehicle and dog, whose owner arrived on scene within moments.  The dog was found to be okay.  The officer spoke with the owner and discussed the poor judgment of having left the dog in the vehicle on a very hot day.

Male found dead on Moonraker trails

On July 2, Golden RCMP were notified that a male had been discovered deceased on the Moonraker trails south of Golden.   Police and Golden and District Search and Rescue responded to the area which is a popular mountain biking trail and located the 38 year old male, a resident of Golden.   The male had been known to be riding the trails that evening and was familiar with the area.  The death does not appear suspicious and the resulting investigation has been passed on to the B.C. Coroners Service.
