No relief found

While conducting a bar check on Dec. 15, officers noticed a male urinating off the deck of the bar patio. Officers approached the male and determined that he had been drinking.

They also found that he was bound by conditions to abstain from consuming alcohol. He was arrested and removed from the liquor establishment and charges are pending.

 

Hang up issues continue

Police investigated a 911 hang up of a cellular phone on Dec. 18. After some time was taken to locate the owner of the cellular phone, the investigation revealed that the caller had been skiing and didn’t realize the 911 call had been made.

Police would like to remind people to ensure that their phones are off or locked when not in use, particularly in the season when more and more people are out enjoying winter activities and will be more likely to place their phones in a pocket.

 

Semi rolls over

Police responded to a report of a semi unit rolled over in the ditch at 4 a.m. on Dec. 18. The driver was trapped in the vehicle but not injured. BC Ambulance and Golden Fire Rescue responded and were able to free the driver from the vehicle.

 

Single vehicle collision

At 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 19 police responded to a single vehicle collision near Heather Hill on Highway 1 west of Golden. A semi tractor trailer unit lost control in winter conditions and left the road way. The two units became separated and came to rest down an embankment. The two occupants of the vehicle were uninjured, but transported to hospital as a precaution.

 

Dog tied up

Police responded to an animal report at the ski hill on Dec.20. A dog had been left tied up on a rather long leash in front of a local business while the owner had gone skiing.

The dog was described as aggressive and would nip at patrons as they passed by.

Shortly before police arrived, the dog owner came back to check on the dog and was directed by the business owner to remove the dog from the area, which he did, and was gone before police could speak with him.

Circumstances like this are not new to this area as a number of similar incidents have been noted in downtown Golden where owners leave their pets tied up directly in front of the entrance doors to the businesses. Owners are reminded that while their animals may be obedient when in the presence of their owners, they can become defensive, cornered, and unpredictable when left unattended.

Unsuspecting people, in particular children, can become victim to such animals even if their intent is playful.

 

Marijuana suspension

While on routine patrol police came upon a vehicle on the side of the highway west of Golden on Dec. 20.

The officer checked to ensure the occupant was OK.

It was at this time that the officer noted an overpowering odour of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Investigation resulted in the seizure of a small quantity of marijuana and a 24-hour driving suspension as the driver was noted to be under the influence of drugs.

 

Dog hangs in hotel

RCMP received a call about a dog which had wandered into a hotel room in town.

The animal was reported as being a vicious animal.

When the RCMP investigated the incident it was found out the animal had wandered into the room and the tenants wanted to go skiing but did not want to put the animal on the street.

They called the RCMP in the hope that they would be  able to take the dog.

The RCMP called the local bylaw officer who came out to the site as well.

The owner of the dog picked up the animal before the RCMP could get to the scene.
