RCMP Report: Man takes nap in the wrong house

A Golden resident woke to find a unknown male asleep on her couch.

Police responded to a report of a burnt-out vehicle west of Golden at the turn off to Kinbasket Lake resort.  Investigation revealed the vehicle had been taken from a residence in Nicholson overnight.  It was described as a white Dodge Durango.  Anyone with information is asked to call the Golden RCMP at 250-344-2221.

Thefts are continuing at area Golden Campgrounds.  Unsuspecting campers are leaving items out around their campsite such as liquor in coolers only to find the coolers missing the following morning.


A Golden resident woke to find a unknown male asleep on her couch.  She woke the male who was disoriented and left without incident.  Police were able to identify the man, who had apparently enjoyed an evening out with friends the night before.   He was unable to recall how he came to sleep on the resident’s couch.


Police are looking for a stolen from the river bank at Nicholson. It is a red and white ladies ORYX bicycle with a tear in the seat.


There was a report of an erratic driver eastbound from the Rogers Pass toward Golden.  Police located the described vehicle, and soon the incident progressed from a driving incident to a drug investigation.  The occupant and vehicle were searched, and a small quantity of illegal drugs were seized.  The investigation continues.


Police responded to a collision 20 kilometres south of Golden on Hwy 95.  A vehicle, which was travelling south on wet roads, failed to negotiate a left arching curve and left the road off the right shoulder, rolling onto its roof.  The occupant was uninjured and able to exit the vehicle without help, and make it to the roadway where some by passers had stopped to help.


A serious crash had the Trans Canada Highway between Revelstoke and Golden closed for more than six hours on Saturday Aug. 17.

Three individuals, all Calgary residents, were seriously injured. The investigation into the head-on collision, involving two pickup trucks, continues. Witnesses told police the driver of an eastbound pickup lost control, and crossed over into the westbound lanes, striking an oncoming pickup.
