The Golden-Field RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance after local police and fire crews from the Golden Fire-Rescue were called to two separate fires near Fisher Road. “The first incident was reported on April 20, and the second one was reported on April 21.” stated RCMP spokesperson Cst. Spencer LAINCHBURY. “In both cases, the fires appear to be deliberately set.” Police advised that are in the process of setting up interviews with some suspects, but are hoping that tips from the public will help them further identify the youth. “We are hoping to speak with anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area, whether it was people loitering, or vehicles out of place.” Anyone with information they believe may be of assistance is asked to call the Golden-Field RCMP at 250-344-2221 or Crimestoppers anonymously at 1- 800-222-8477. Crimestoppers may offer up to a $2000 cash reward for information that assists police in solving these incidents.

Police are investigating after an attempted theft of one vehicle and a successful theft of another on April 22. “Police were dispatched to a hotel on Highway 1 at approximately 3:15 am after the owner heard his truck start up and then watched as his truck and trailer drove off.” states Cst. Spencer LAINCHBURY, spokesperson for the Golden-Field RCMP. “Patrols were immediately made however police were not able to locate the stolen vehicles.”

Later that morning, police received a call from a resident on 11th Avenue North, indicating that the locks and ignition of his vehicle had been punched out overnight. “At this time we don’t have anything to confirm that the two occurrences are related, but we do suspect given the proximity in location of the two offences that they have something to do with each other.” says Cst. LAINCHBURY.

Golden-Field RCMP recovered the stolen trailer on the evening of April 22 after a passerby noticed the trailer parked at the end of Blaeberry Road; however the truck, a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500, with NWT plate 3238347 has yet to be recovered
