RCMP Report: Police investigating attempted thefts in Golden

Two attempted thefts are being investigated in the Golden area among other incidents in this week's RCMP Report.

Breach of Peace

Police responded to a breach of the peace at a rental property at the Kicking Horse Ski Resort on Jan. 24.  Police identified a group of males who were enjoying some hot tub time.

They were consuming alcohol, throwing snow balls at the nearby residence and just being loud.  Once police spoke with the males, they moved their festivities inside the residence and no further reported disturbances were had.

Drunk Driving

Police came upon a vehicle leaving the day lodge at the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort shortly before midnight on Jan. 24.  The driver exhibited signs of having consumed alcohol.

Further investigation confirmed the driver’s blood alcohol exceeded 100 mg per cent.  The subject was served with a 90 day driving prohibition and a 30 day vehicle impound.

Drugs in Vehicle

On Jan. 24 police observed a local resident operating a vehicle while consuming a drug.  Officers conducted further tests with the driver and confirmed the driver was impaired by drugs.

The subject was served noticed under the Motor Vehicle Act and prohibited from driving for a period of 24 hours.

Break and Enter

Police were notified of a break and enter at a business in Parson on Jan. 25.

Forced entry into the premise had been obtained through a window, and a bottle of liquor was stolen.  Anyone with information is asked to call the Golden RCMP.

Attempted Thefts

On Jan. 26 police received a report of a theft in progress in the Blaeberry.  Residents were alerted by their dogs barking.

They looked outside to see lights on in an outbuilding and a strange vehicle in their driveway.  The suspects were able to move a vehicle from the outbuilding during an attempt to steal it, but fled the scene in a waiting vehicle, described as a white or light coloured car.

One of the suspects is described as male 5”10” with dirty blonde hair wearing a brown hoodie.

A second break and enter and an attempted entry were reported in the following days and are believed to be associated to the same suspect.  Police continue to investigate.

If anyone has information of these, or any other crimes in the area, they are asked to contact the Golden RCMP at 250-344-2221, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) or online at http://www.bccrimestoppers.com.
