RCMP Report: Pair of neighbourly disputes around Golden

Police responded to two separate incidents of arguments between neighbours over the last week.

Attempted stereo theft

On Feb. 24, Police received a report from a resident of 13th St. S that someone had entered a vehicle parked in the driveway and attempted to steal the stereo.  The resident suspects two young males who were confronted on the property at an earlier date.

Road rage

On Feb. 22, Police responded to a reported disturbance five kilometres west of Golden on Hwy #1. The investigation revealed the disturbance started inside an eastbound travelling pickup truck.  A verbal dispute between two occupants of the vehicle led to the passenger becoming physically violent toward the driver while they were travelling on the highway.  The driver lost control of the vehicle as a result and came to a stop partially down an embankment.  There were no injuries as a result of the collision.  The passenger is facing charges of assault.

Like a good neighbour…

Police were called to a rural property on Feb. 26 where some trees and trenches were dug on or near the property line.  Where one property begins and ends can be difficult to determine at times in rural settings.  Property owners are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure that any work they do on their land, is in fact on their land only and not that of a neighbouring property owner.  In most cases, neighbour conflicts can be avoided by having had a dialogue with the neighbour before hand to ensure a clear understanding and or to obtain permission for access to the adjacent property.  Failure to ensure legal ownership/access may result in civil action or criminal charges.

In addition, police responded to a neighbourly dispute where one neighbour was challenging the other to come out and fight.  The investigation revealed the subject was upset with the neighbour for starting his snowmobile late at night.  Police were able to speak with both parties and diffuse the tension, allowing calmer heads to prevail.

Counterfeit money

A counterfeit $100 dollar US currency was seized by police this week after being passed at a local business.
