RCMP Report: Bear tries to break into home

Police responded, and when the scene was examined, saw two sets of claw markings on the door consistent with that of a small bear.

Neighbour dispute

Police responded to a neighbour dispute in south Golden on Sept. 6.  A resident was upset with their neighbour who had erected a fence.  A verbal dispute ensued.

Police attended and diffused the incident after determining the neighbour had permission from the owners to build the fence.  The resident was apologetic once the circumstances were made clear.

Bear Break-in

A Parson resident reported hearing a loud bang at her front door on Sept. 5.  After a closer look she saw the door was damaged, and she was unable to open it.  She could not see or hear the person responsible.

Police responded, and when the scene was examined, saw two sets of claw markings on the door consistent with that of a small bear.

All residents are reminded to keep all food items in sealed containers and indoors.  It is also imperative that area residents ensure all produce from yard trees and gardens are picked and fallen fruit is collected and either used or discarded appropriately.

Window Shattered

A vehicle window was shattered on a pick up truck parked on 11th Avenue North.  It occurred sometime between 7 p.m. on Sept. 6 and 3 a.m. on Sept. 7.

On the same day there was a break and enter to a residence on 12th Street South.   A jar of coins was stolen.

Hit and Run

A Revelstoke resident was reversing his vehicle to line up with a gas pump at a local service station on Sept. 10.  He backed up too far striking the vehicle behind and damaging it.

The Revelstoke resident then left the service station without making any attempt to locate and notify the owner of the other vehicle.  Police were called and reviewed surveillance video at the scene which confirmed the incident as described.

Police were able to locate the suspect’s vehicle during patrols and the driver was issued a violation ticket for Failing to Stop after a collision with an unattended vehicle.
