A gentleman ran into more trouble than first expected on June 3.  He was travelling in his RV and noted he was having engine troubles.  He attempted to turn around on the highway to return to town and have the vehicle checked, when he went a little too far back and became hung up on the road edge, in turn blocking half the highway.  Police and highways personnel provide traffic control until a tow truck was able to come out and safely remove the RV from the road.

Golden RCMP received a complaint that a motorist was travelling west on Highway 1, erratically speeding and passing multiple vehicles at a time.  Police located the vehicle pulling out of a local fast food restaurant.  The vehicle and driver were checked and it was found the vehicle did not have valid insurance.  In addition, the driver, a Kelowna resident, has three outstanding warrants for arrest.  The subject was arrested, held and presented for a hearing.  The subject now has a pending court date at the end of the month.

This past week two vehicles were reported stolen from the area.  A Uhaul van and a Parky’s vehicle.  Both vehicles have since been recovered, located at the Blue Water Campground area.  Police have leads in these thefts and continue to investigate.
