The Golden-Field RCMP received 90 calls for service this week, down about 10 per cent from the previous week. Of these, 28 files were traffic related, including 5 collision and 23 driving complaints.

Disturbance in Beaverfoot

On August 16, police responded to a disturbance at a cabin near the Beaverfoot. Police determined that two males had been drinking together resulting in an argument. The two parties had been separated for some time and no further actions were required by police.

Customers harassed at gas station

The Golden-Field RCMP were called to a local gas station on August 16 after a male had been making offensive and crude remarks to other customers at the gas station. Police attended and were able to identify and speak with the male who agreed to leave the area. No further issues or complaints were received.

Alleged kidnapping was misunderstanding

Police were called on August 17 after a Calgary resident reported that her mother had kidnapped her child and was currently in Golden. Officers were able to speak with the grandmother who indicated that she had taken the child while her daughter received medical care.

The grandmother stated that she received a call the previous day, while on Vancouver Island, requesting the child back and simply needed time to drive from the Island to Calgary, and was now almost in Banff.

The complainant was updated and no further issues were reported.
