RCMP Report: More drugs delivered to local business

A local business received another package addressed to a former employee containing what is believed to be a small amount of cocaine.

Charges dropped for Edmonton woman

A 30 year-old woman from Edmonton attended the Golden-Field RCMP Detachment this week to turn herself in on warrants that had been issued for her arrest in 2003. After consultation with the issuing agency, the woman was glad to learn that the Crown had decided that they would not be pursuing the matter, so the female was not arrested.

Domestic disturbance

Police were called to a disturbance on April 21 after an argument, believed to be fuelled by alcohol, transpired between a couple. No criminal offences were reported to be committed by either party, and the two were separated for the evening to allow things to calm down.

Cocaine delivered to local business

A local business received another parcel of drugs in the mail this week, addressed to an employee that was fired last week for the same thing. The employer handed over the shipment to police on April 21, which contained what is believed to be a small amount of cocaine.

Drug pipe seized

Police seized a drug pipe from a vehicle on April 20, after police noticed the driver run over a curb on 9th Street North. “A traffic stop was initiated with the vehicle, and further investigation led to the discovery of a pipe inside the vehicle,” said Golden-Field RCMP spokesperson Cst. Spencer Lainchbury. No charges are expected in relation to the seizure, and the item will be destroyed by police.

Alleged threats

On April 21, police received a call requesting assistance after a dispute between co-workers ended up in one allegedly threatening the other. “The two co-workers had made an arrangement in relation to some property.” stated Cst. Laincbury. “When the arrangement went bad, one of the parties allegedly told the other one she was going to shoot the other’s husband.” After speaking with police, the complainant decided that she did not wish to pursue the matter therefore charges will not be forwarded.

Weary travellers

Police assisted two travellers with finding a hotel room after police were called to a hotel regarding two people banging on room doors around 12:30 a.m. on April 23. Police attended and determined that the two had missed their bus to Calgary and decided to have a few drinks while they waited for the next one. “After their drinking establishment closed for the night, the two found themselves outside in the cold,” said Cst. Lainchbury. The two then decided to bang on the doors at a hotel to convince people to give them some blankets.” After speaking with police the two decided it would be best that they get their own hotel for the night, and try and catch the next bus once they were both sober.

Truck driver just under limit

A commercial truck driver almost lost his licence and company vehicle for three days after CVSE officers at the scales detected an odour of liquor on him. CVSE contacted police to obtain breath samples, and the samples provided by the driver, although not over the legal limit, gave CVSE officers the grounds to park the vehicle for 10 hours.

Public urination

Police were called to a local business on April 23 after a customer reported seeing a male urinating in the parking lot where he was visible to other customers. Police responded and located the male who stated that he was unaware that the others could see him, and apologized for his actions.

B&E in Parson

Police are investigating after several items were stolen from inside a residence in Parson on April 25. “The owner contacted police after he returned home and noticed his front door open,” stated Cst. Lainchbury. Items missing include a Samsung tablet, a television, tools, and a generator. Anyone with information regarding this break and enter are asked to contact RCMP at 250-344-2221 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Intoxicated female causes disturbance

A 37 year-old female from Calgary found herself in jail overnight after she was reported to be yelling in the parking lot of a local convenience store on April 26. “Staff from the store became concerned when the female, who was clearly intoxicated, began shouting that she had lost the keys to her vehicle.” said Cst. Lainchbury. “They believed that if the female were to find her keys she would drive away.” Police responded and spoke with the female and quickly determined that the female was intoxicated. Police attempted to make arrangements for the female to go back with a friend she was staying with, however the friend refused to take care of the female for the evening. The female was arrested for causing a disturbance by yelling and being intoxicated, and lodged in cells until sober.
