RCMP Report: Police searching for two youth after break and enter

RCMP are searching for a pair of youth after a break and enter among other files this week.

Snowmobiling injury

On the afternoon of Mar. 23, police were advised that a male had sustained non-life threatening injuries while snowmobiling near Quartz Creek. Golden and District Search and Rescue had already been advised, and conducted the rescue.

Failed search for skateboarder

Police attempted to locate a male who was allegedly high on drugs and skateboarding down the middle of 10th Ave. S. on the evening of Mar. 23. The male had left a restaurant in the area, and staff called police to ensure that the male was safe. Extensive patrols were made throughout town and on Highway 1; however the male was not located.

Alleged domestic assault

Police were called to a disturbance at a local residence on the night of March 24, where it’s alleged that a female from Golden assaulted her boyfriend at his residence.

“The accused had departed in a vehicle prior to police arriving, however we were able to locate and arrest her a short time later,” said Cst. Spencer Lainchbury. The accused is set to appear in court on May 20.

Domestic harassment

A female attended the RCMP Detachment on Mar. 24 advising police that she was being harassed by her ex-boyfriend who worked at the same company as her. The female stated that she did not wish for charges to be pursued in the matter, but wanted the information documented.

Police were able to confirm that the male was no longer working with the company, and would be moving back to Ontario. No further complaints were received by police.

Explosive party in Nicholson

Police were called to a report of three explosions near Nicholson Road during the night of Mar. 24.

“Upon attendance we were able to determine that the explosions were a result of neighbours, who were having a party, throwing spray paint cans into a fire,” said Cst. Lainchbury. The group was warned about noise, and agreed to quiet down for the evening.

Hunter near Anderson Rd.

On March 25, the Golden-Field RCMP received a report of a male walking near Anderson Road with a gun. Police were able to determine the male was on private property, and had the permission of the owner to hunt on the property.

Road rage

Police are investigating after it was alleged that a vehicle passed another vehicle at a high rate of speed on 10th Ave. N. The complainant followed the driver and was able to speak with her, at which point things escalated and police were called.

“Confronting other drivers over traffic offences is not something we recommend,” said Cst. Lainchbury. “These situations can escalate quickly, and it is often not worth putting yourself at risk.”

Incident at CP

Police were called to a disturbance between CP Rail employees and residents in Habart on Mar. 25, after it was alleged that the residents came on to CP property and confronted the workers. As the matter occurred on CP property the file will be investigated by local CP Police.

Missing 3 year-old found

A three year old was reported missing during the afternoon of March 25, after his parents were unable to locate him. The three year old had been playing outside and after a short search; police were able to locate him riding his bicycle on a trail near his house.

Break and enter on 9th St. S.

Police are seeking information from the public after they were called to a break and enter at a residence off of 9th Street South. “It appears that someone entered the residence while the owner was at work, and stole items including cash and make up,” said Cst. Lainchbury. After speaking with neighbours, police are trying to determine the identity of two female youths who were seen near the house that day. Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-344-2221 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Stolen items returned

Police were called to a local business on March 27 after staff reported that they saw a male had stolen a jacket and T-shirt. The staff confronted the male outside, who then returned the jacket before taking off in a vehicle. Police were able to speak with the registered owner of the vehicle, who refused to provide police with the identity of the male.

Child left unattended

Police were called to a local grocery store after customers noted a child, approximately one-year old, was left unattended outside. “Upon arrival it was determined that the child had been left outside by his grandmother, who was visiting from a foreign country,” said Cst. Lainchbury. “The child had since been re-united with his parents who explained to the grandmother that leaving a child unattended was not a common practice in Canada.”

Local charged with dangerous driving

A 36 year-old from Golden is facing charges for impaired driving, flight from police, and dangerous driving after it is alleged he refused to stop for police at a road block on Kicking Horse Trail.

“Police were able to get the vehicle stopped, and formed the grounds that the male was impaired by alcohol,” said Cst. Lainchbury. The male was then arrested and brought back to the police station where he provided samples of his breath that registered more than three times the legal limit. The male is due to appear in court in Golden on June 16.

Hwy 95 accident

Police attended a single vehicle collision on Highway 95, on Mar. 24. Upon arrival police determined that the vehicle went off the road, rolling one time. The vehicle’s driver and only occupant was transported by BC Ambulance to the Golden Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Intoxicated driver causes collision

A 25 year old male from Alberta had his vehicle impounded for 30 days, and his licence suspended for 90 days after police attended a collision on Mar. 28.

“Witnesses were able to identify the driver to police, who then formed suspicion that the driver had alcohol in his body,” said Cst. Lainchbury.

The driver failed two different roadside screening device tests and was given an immediate roadside prohibition.
