RCMP Report: 13-year-old runaway found shoplifting in Golden

The shoplifter at a local store was a 13-year-old runaway from Cranbrook, who had been missing for a week

The RCMP dealt with 45 complaints last week.

On April 25 at 5 p.m., RCMP received a call from a local business saying there was a young girl shoplifting in the store. When the RCMP arrived, they discovered that the girl was a 13-year-old runaway from Cranbrook, who had been missing for a week.

The girl is a habitual runaway, and the RCMP turned her over to the Ministry of Family and Child Development, who made arrangements to get her back to Cranbrook.

On April 26 at 9:11 p.m. a vehicle was stopped on the overpass off Highway 1. The male driver of the pick-up truck showed signs of being impaired. A road side screening device was used, which determined the male was over the legal limit. A three-day suspension of his license was issued, as well as a three-day impoundment of the vehicle. The driver was not a local resident.

On April 27 at 2:20 a.m., RCMP received word that there was a heavily intoxicated male on 6th Street North. When police spoke with him he indicated he was trying to get to the Greyhound Station on Highway 1.

The male was too intoxicated to be allowed on a bus, so he tried calling friends he had in town. He was unable to get a hold of any of them. Since the male was unable to take care of himself, and could not find anyone else to take care of him, he spent the night in jail, and was released in the morning.

On April 28 at 7:03 p.m., RCMP got a report of a Break and Enter in progress on Almberg Road. The resident knew the suspect, who stole the resident’s wallet. The 40-year-old local male was caught, and released on a promise to appear in court.
