Police responded to 46 files over the past week.

Marijuana seized

In the early hours of Jan. 17, police on foot patrol stopped a Cranbrook male who was smoking marijuana. The man was arrested and his drugs were seized before he was released. No chargers were given.

Driver fails breathalyzer

On Jan. 18, not long after bars had closed for the night, an Australian male was stopped by police and issued a breathalyzer test.

The man failed the test and had his driver’s license revoked for 90 days. The man had parked his car on the south side of the Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge in an effort to avoid police, a common strategy for individuals looking to drink and then drive home which police are very much aware of.

Fight at the Golden Taps

While out on foot patrol on Jan. 18, police entered The Golden Taps right before a fight broke out at the back of the bar. RCMP put a stop to the fight and the parties involved were sent home without further incident.

Illegal parking at KHMR

Police have had several reports from the resort regarding individuals who have left their car overnight in non-designated overnight parking areas.

Overnight parking areas are clearly marked, and when drivers leave their vehicles outside of those spaces it can often lead to occasions where police and search and rescue personnel are lead to believe that someone is hurt or lost in the backcountry.

Those parking in overnight parking spaces should sign in with the resort to ensure that their plans are well known.

Theft at local hotel

On Jan. 20, a visiting woman reported that some jewellery had been stolen from her hotel room. Police are still investigating the case but are reminding hotel patrons to keep their valuables hidden or locked up.

Goldilocks visits Parson

On Jan. 19 a man returned to his Parson residence after a few days away to find that someone had broken into his home and stayed overnight. Anyone with any information about the break-in is asked to contact RCMP.

Noisy party

Late on Jan. 22 police received a report about a noisy party happening in the 300 block of 10th St. The owners of the house were very cooperative when police arrived and the party ended shortly after.
