RCMP Report: Cocaine trafficker sentenced

A local young adult was charged with trafficking cocaine in court last week.

Drinking and driving

The Golden/Field RCMP had multiple drinking and driving incidents over the past week.

On Dec. 6, at 1 a.m., a vehicle was pulled over on 9th Street South, near the Mad Trapper. The driver, who was an Ontario resident, was issued a 90-day IRP suspension. Another vehicle was pulled over at 2 a.m. The driver’s vehicle was impounded for 30 days, and got a 90-day license suspension.

On the same day at 11:30 p.m. a Parson resident was pulled over, and was also issued a 30-day impoundment and a 90-day suspension of the license.

On Dec. 8 at 3:30 a.m. another Parson resident was pulled over, and was determined to be impaired. The driver’s license was suspended.

The RCMP responded to a collision in which a semi ran into another semi near the Husky Station on the highway on Dec. 10. One driver was intoxicated, and was charged with refusing to provide a breath sample. Coincidentally, the driver was expected to appear in court the following day as a witness for another impaired driving charge.

On Dec. 7, the Golden RCMP participated in a nationwide counterattack initiative and had check stops moving around from several locations between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m.

Police are asking residents to please be responsible this holiday season, and plan ahead for a safe ride home.

Domestic violence

On Dec. 12 police responded to a call about a fight. It turned out to be a case of domestic violence. One person was arrested and released with a future court date.

Noisy party

Police responded to a noise complaint at a home on 11th Street South. The residents were asked to turn down the music, and they complied.

Cocaine trafficking

A local young adult was charged with trafficking cocaine in court last week. He has been sentenced to four months in a correction facility in Kamloops.
