Witness avoids subpoena

A witness in a trial had been avoiding their subpoena to appear in court. Officers made several attempts to obtain the crucial witness but were unsuccessful and the case was stayed as a result. The officer returned to the residence the following day and the witness, knowing they were no longer required for the trial came out to speak with the officer, only to discover the officer was there on an unrelated matter.  The subject had a number of outstanding warrants from another province which had been extended.  The subject was arrested, held and later transferred to the Province of Jurisdiction.

Twice the bad luck.

A motorist’s vehicle broke down on Hwy 1 near Donald on May 17.  The owner left the vehicle there overnight to arrange for pick up the following day.  When they returned the found someone had smashed out the window and stolen items which included paint ball equipment, fishing rods and tackle.  Anyone with information is asked to call the Golden RCMP.

Hit and run on Highway 1

A motorist from Olds, Alta. was travelling east on Hwy 1 through the Tupper Tunnel Snow shed when he was struck from behind by a Calgary motorist on May 21.  The victim pulled over at the first pullout but the suspect continued east on Hwy #1. A license plate was obtained for the suspect’s vehicle and the investigation continues. Charges are expected.

Lost Albertan

On May 22, a report was received of a person passed out near the railway tracks in town.  Officers responded to find an intoxicated male from Alberta down an embankment near the tracks.  The male was not injured but had no place to go.  The subject was held in a cell until he was sober.

Fine for unlicensed driver

Police received a report of a possible impaired driver on May 22.  The vehicle was being driven at inconsistent speeds and swerving in and out of its lane.  Police located the vehicle which was being driven by a 19-year-old female who was found to have no driver’s license.  The female was issued a $276 dollar fine.  Luckily the passenger of the vehicle was the holder of a valid license and was able to continue driving.
