This week Golden RCMP members responded to 29 local files.
Computers seized in search
On Oct. 29, 2012, Golden RCMP started a joint investigation with Delta P.D. and the Integrated Child Exploitation (ICE) Team out of Vancouver.
The investigation was looking at child pornography in the Golden area and on Jan. 13, 2013 the Golden RCMP executed a search warrant on a local residence and seized a computer. Since the execution of the search warrant, charges have been laid against a local man.
Currently the male has been charged with “Make Available Child Pornography” and “Possession of Child Pornography. The first charge of Make Available Child Pornography was explained by local RCMP as someone who distributes child pornography through the internet.
Golden RCMP was informed of the case after the Delta P.D. came across information on the case which was then forwarded to Golden. RCMP in Golden worked with ICE on the case due to the complicated nature of the investigation.
The case is currently before the courts and the male involved is out on bail.
Party time, not so excellent
RCMP were called to a house party when a noise complaint was called into the detachment. The RCMP responded to the house in question and informed the people at the gathering of the complaint. The party shut down, and RCMP are ask people to remember to respect those people who live near them when having parties at their houses.
Two detained in spirited fight
RCMP were called to a disturbance in the Spirit Square area of downtown at approximately 2:30 a.m. Upon arriving at the scene RCMP found two men involved in a fight. RCMP took the two men into custody until they were sober.
Second time’s a cold night
On Jan. 16, and for the second week in a row, the RCMP and Golden and District Search and Rescue were involved in helping a person stuck in the backcountry on a snowmobile.
The local person involved turned out to be the same person who needed help the week before. This time the man and his friend were forced to spend a night in the backcountry as search and rescue had to wait until morning to get out to help the people involved. People are reminded to take great care when going into the backcountry on snowmobiles.
