Police request information over mischief

The Golden/Field Royal Canadian Mounted Police are looking into multiple incident of mischief and vandalism.

The Golden/Field Royal Canadian Mounted Police detachment is requesting any information with regards to a number of mischief complaints that were received over the weekend of April 20 to April 22, 2012.

A complaint was received that graffiti had been left at Golden Secondary School both in the west parking lot and on the sidewalk in front of the main entrance.

It is believed that this took place sometime on Friday, April 20.

In addition to this incident, a number of personal vehicles suffered broken windows and were keyed throughout the town while parked at private residences.

The RCMP also received several complaints of windows being broken at various properties in town.

Anyone with information on these incidents is asked to contact the Golden/Field RCMP Detachment at 344-2221.


The Golden/Field RCMP detachment is starting to see an increase in mischief to property, theft and break and enter occurrences in the Golden area due to the warmer weather.

Police are reminding property owners to keep their out buildings, gates, homes and vehicles locked to prevent theft.

The most common break and enter/theft occurring in the Golden area is the result of unlocked buildings or vehicles. In additional to already existing residential patrols, police will also be issuing violation tickets for liquor consumption in public areas to curb late night and early morning vandalism
