High Speed Chase

On Oct. 11 a vehicle failed to stop at a stop sign. Police attempted to stop the vehicle which fled at a high rate of speed.

The vehicle travelled through a construction zone east of Golden knocking over pylons while workers were on site. While the vehicle temporarily evaded police, it was located a short time later, abandoned in the Blaeberry.

The suspect was located a short distance away on foot and was arrested. The male driver in his 20s is facing a number of charges under the Motor Vehicle Act as well as Dangerous Operation of a motor vehicle under the Criminal Code.

Agressive Dog

On the evening of Oct. 11 a report was received of an aggressive dog near the pedestrian bridge. Police located the dog which was still on a leash but not in the control of anyone.

The Town’s by-law officer was contacted and took control of the abandoned animal. Police were able to locate the owner of the dog later in the evening. The owner told police that they had lost the dog. They were advised to contact the by-law officer in the morning to arrange the return of the animal.

Bear Destroyed

A bear was destroyed by conservation officers in the vicinity of Alexander Park Elementary School on Oct. 12.

An animal was spotted on multiple days near the school. A bear had been seen on school property. Another bear was spotted in the Selkirk Hill area. This is the fourth bear put down in the last three weeks in Golden. Bears are still being spotted in Golden and residents are advised to be careful when out walking. Bears are also still getting into residents’ garbage.

Open Beverages

RCMP have noticed a rise in people drinking in public. Some of the incidents have stemmed from people going to local pubs and bars. RCMP would like to advise residents that they are ticketing people and seizing alcohol of anyone caught with open beverages in public.
