RCMP Report: couch lit ablaze behind Rockwater

See what the Golden RCMP had to deal with this past week.

-On August 5, the Golden RCMP were contacted at 2:20 a.m. because a couch had been set on fire behind the Rockwater Grill and Bar. It is not known exactly how the fire started, and anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the RCMP.

-It was a busy week for the RCMP on the highways. Of the 65 files for the week, 20 were reports of erratic drivers on the highway. The RCMP also responded to four motor vehicle accidents on the highway.

-RCMP officers had to deal with an unusual request from a father in the United States. He contacted the detachment, worrying about his son who is mountain climbing in the area. The son was supposed to send out a beacon to his father every night, and after he hadn’t received a signal one night he called the RCMP. The son and his friend were eventually found climbing in the Bugaboos, and told officials they had forgotten to send out the beacon.

-RCMP have received several complaints, and issued some tickets, for public urination in the downtown area, near Spirit Square. Patrons of the local bars and pubs have been relieving themselves outdoors, causing several people to call in complaints.

-Thefts and vandalism are still a common problem around town. RCMP are reminding people to lock up their homes, vehicles, and bikes, and to not leave valuables out in the open.

If anyone has any information on these, or any other crimes in the area, please call the Golden RCMP Detachment at 250-344-2221
