Stuck Car Blocked Tracks

The Golden-Field RCMP were called on January 25, just before midnight, after a driver was unable to get her car unstuck from a snowbank, and that it was blocking the CP rail train tracks in Field.

CP Rail was immediately notified and able to assist the female with getting the vehicle off the tracks.

No other police or emergency assistance was required.

Friend Bitten by other Friend

A 21 year-old male from Manitoba spent the night in police custody on January 26 after the RCMP was called to a disturbance at a local hotel.

Once on scene police determined that two friends, who were staying together at the hotel, had gotten into a fight, and it was alleged that one had bitten the other.

The male was arrested for the assault and held in custody to prevent further calls.

A small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia was seized by police.

Police will not be recommending any charges as the victim did not wish for the matter to be pursued.

CRA Phone Scam

On January 27, local police received seven separate complaints from Golden residents alone advising that they had received a phone call from a 581 area code number in which the caller would indicate that he was either an officer with the Canada Revenue Agency’s Criminal Investigations Unit and that they would need to send money or face jail time.

“This is a common scam that isn’t new to local police,” said Cst. Spencer Lainchbury.

“Those who are unsure whether it’s a scam can contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre or police.”

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre can be reached at 1-888-495- 8501.
