RCMP Report: A fight between friends resulted in a bite

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

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.

Man Reported Missing Found in Calgary

Police were called on January 28 after receiving a report that a male had not been heard from as expected and that the caller was concerned for his wellbeing.

Police conducted patrols for the person’s vehicle but were unable to locate it. A call was received a short time later advising that the male had been located near Calgary.

Marijuana Seized from Student

A small amount of marijuana was seized by police on January 28 after police were called to a local school after staff came across the drug in possession of some students.

The youth are expected to go before the local restorative justice committee as an alternative to criminal court.

Wanted Male Found in Golden

A 33 year-old male from the Vernon area is still in police custody after Alberta RCMP received a tip on January 28 that the male, who had several outstanding warrants both in British Columbia and Alberta, was at a residence in Golden.

Three officers from the Golden-Field RCMP attended the residence and located the male who was hiding inside a bathroom.

The male was arrested without incident and appeared before a Justice of the Peace who ordered that the male be held.

The male is scheduled to appear in court in Kamloops on February 3.

Shoplifters Banned from Store

On January 31, police received a call from a local grocery store after staff alleged that two people had walked out of the store without paying for their items, which were worth approximately $60.00.

The store did not wish to proceed with charges and opted to ban the two, a male and female who are both from Nicholson, from the store.
