RCMP Report: Party broken up at Glacier Lodge

Parties near Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and counterfeit U.S. currency among the calls for the RCMP last week.

Intoxicated driver on 10th. Ave. N.

 

Police pulled over a 40 year-old male from Vancouver on Jan. 17. The individual was given a road side sobriety test, which he failed. He was given a 90 day prohibition and a 30 day impoundment.

 

Marijuana seized at Glacier Lodge

 

RCMP responded to a loud noise complaint at Glacier Lodge on Jan. 18. Two separate groups were responsible for the noise complaint. After investigation, small amounts of marijuana were discovered and seized from both rooms. No charges were laid.

 

MVI on Kicking Horse Trail

 

On the morning of Jan. 18, police responded to a single-vehicle accident on Kicking Horse Trail near Elk Road. The driver of the vehicle, a local resident, lost control of their vehicle and went into a ditch. The vehicle sustained minor damage.

 

Party at Glacier Lodge

 

At 1:30 a.m. on Jan 19, RCMP responded to a call of a loud party at a condo near Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. The party goers were asked to turn their music down, which they did.

As the police were leaving and getting into their cars, however, the individuals turned their music back up. Police returned to the condo and warned them that fines would be given if they didn’t turn the music down for good. This time, the individuals co-operated.

Wrong house

 

Police received a call from a resident of the 700 block of 7th. Ave. S. of an intoxicated male who was attempting to enter the resident’s home. When the RCMP arrived the man had left the area but was quickly discovered walking on the street.

The man was extremely intoxicated and unable to tell police who he was or where he lived. It was later determined that he was staying a couple doors down from the house he had previously tried to enter.

He was arrested for being intoxicated in a public place and spent the night in custody until he was sober enough to be released.

 

Counterfeit U.S. $50 bills

 

The CIBC reported that they received some counterfeit U.S. $50 bills. According to Sgt. Troy Durand, counterfeit American money is becoming more common north of the border now that Canadian money has become harder to counterfeit.

Residents are asked to keep an eye out for counterfeit U.S. money.

 

MVI on Mitchell Rd.

 

Two vehicles, a Ford SUV and a white Kenworth tanker truck, sustained minor damage on Jan. 22 after a collision on Mitchell Rd.

The drivers were unharmed and no chargers were laid.

 

Lost snowmobiler

 

Police and GADSAR responded to a call of a lost snowmobiler in the Quartz Creek area. The Calgary man was located, and he was safe but his snowmobile was stuck.

 

Disturbance at the hospital

 

RCMP responded to a call on Jan. 24 of an intoxicated man at the hospital. The 53-year-old Calgary resident was arrested for causing a disturbance.
