RCMP Report: Mischievous guests at local hotel

Three hotel guests had been using the pool after hours, and threw debris in the pool when asked to leave.

Drunk Driving

On Jan. 17, the driver of a mini van was on 10th Avenue at 3:30 a.m. was found to be driving under the influence of alcohol.  The driver received a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition and has lost the use of the van for the next 30 days.

Fight at vacation home

Shortly after midnight on Jan. 11, police responded to a disturbance at a rental vacation property at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.  Investigation revealed that a group of people from Alberta had come to the area for a weekend of skiing.  They were enjoying some down time at that home and the end the day when one person in particular had a little bit too much to drink and became belligerent and confrontational.

A struggle ensued and they were unable to calm the male.  When the police arrived, the male became much more co-operative.  He had some minor injuries which were treated in hospital and he was transported elsewhere for the evening.

Mischief at hotel

Police were called to a mischief at a local hotel on Jan. 11.  Investigation revealed that three guests had been using the pool and were asked to leave a number of times as the pool hours had ended.

As they were leaving, the guests, who were clearly under the influence of alcohol, began to mishandle the artificial plants in the pool area and immersed them in the pool itself.  This resulted in debris being deposited into the pool and potentially affecting the filtration systems.  The guests were left to pay damages for the cost to clean the pool.

Stolen vehicle

While responding to a reported collision near Field, police came upon a vehicle travelling extremely slow on the Highway.  Checks of the vehicle license plate identified the vehicle as being reported stolen earlier that day from Merritt.

Police attempted to the stop the vehicle which continued as slow speeds, eventually pulling over near the Spiral Tunnels.  One male occupant was taken into custody without incident and subsequently pled guilty in Golden Provincial Court on January 14, 2014.  The male was sentenced to 30 days in jail.
