RCMP Report: Fire in Nicholson

The RCMP responded to 44 files over the past week, including a woodshed that caught fire in Nicholson.

Two dine and dashers

RCMP received a report from Boston Pizza that a customer who had eaten at the restaurant on Nov. 3 still hadn’t paid his bill. The Alberta male left a wallet as collateral, but hadn’t returned to pay as of Nov. 7, which is when police received the report. RCMP are still investigating.

Fight night

In the early hours of Nov. 15, police received a report of a fight outside the Mad Trapper Pub.

Officers attended the scene and located a fighting pair of friends. The fight appeared to be consensual and without malice. The friends were told to go home, and they complied.

GADSAR vehicle vandalism

Also on Nov. 8, RCMP received a report from Search and Rescue of a vandalized vehicle at their Golden airport headquarters.

The damage is believed to have occurred sometime in the previous few weeks. Anyone with any information is asked to contact police.

Loud party

On Nov. 9 at 1:30 a.m., police received a complaint of a loud party on the 1200 block of 11th. St. S. The party goers were asked to quiet down and they complied without further incident.

Fire at Horse Creek Rd.

In the early hours of Nov. 11, police and the Nicholson Fire Department were called to a woodshed fire at Horse Creek Rd. The fire is still under investigation but it was not deemed to be suspicious.

Accident at the Husky

On Nov. 13, a car was struck by a tractor trailer that was turning left from Frontage Rd.

The semi struck the vehicle, which was stopped to turn onto the same street.

The trailer dragged the vehicle along for 30 metres, apparently unaware of the contact. The driver of the semi was issued a violation ticket. No injuries were reported.

Disturbance on Bus

A man was charged for striking a police officer after the RCMP were called to help with an intoxicated passenger.

Greyhound personnel alerted police of the drunk B.C. male, who was causing a disturbance on the bus. They asked for him to be removed while the bus was stopped in Golden, but when police arrived on the scene he was sleeping at the back.

After he was woken up, he became very combative and struck one of the two attending officers. The RCMP member received only minor injuries in the incident, and the man was quickly removed from the bus and taken into police custody.
