ATV stolen from Kettleston Road

12-04-13

Golden/Field RCMP have seen a rise in thefts from vehicles recently in and around Golden. There was a theft of a high-end all terrain vehicle from the Kettleston Road area.

The vehicle, called a Kubota, is a diesel ATV. The RCMP said people should do their best to keep these types of vehicles in an area where people would have a difficult time stealing them.

On April 14, RCMP attained information about a person of interest who may have been involved with the theft of the ATV and made an arrest.

The ATV was found in the bush, near where it was stolen. One local male was charged with theft over $5,000. The suspect has had a bail hearing and has been released with very strict conditions.

Gas targeted by thieves

RCMP were called to the area of 8th Avenue South and 14th /15th Street.

A citizen flagged down a patrol car and claimed they had seen some youths who were stealing gasoline from vehicles parked along the street in the immediate area.

The person described a pickup truck and while on patrol the RCMP pulled over a vehicle closely matching the description they had been given.

The officer questioned the two visible occupants in the truck and determined they had altered the look of the vehicle for some unknown reason.

The officer arrested the two occupants of the truck only to find two more people hiding under a blanket in the back seat of the vehicle.

The officer ended up arresting all of the people who were in the truck.

The RCMP recovered property that had been stolen from a decommissioned ambulance that had been parked in the area where the thefts were supposed to have occurred.

Upon a search of the vehicle, Golden/Field RCMP also found paraphernalia which could be used for stealing gas.

The RCMP are recommending charges and the suspects have been released under specific conditions.

The four people were adults from the Golden area. One of the four was identified as the person involved with the theft of an ATV (read above) on Kettleston Road.

RCMP are asking that anyone who had gas stolen from their vehicle on April 14 to contact the RCMP in Golden.

Semi trailer truck goes off highway

18-04-13

A semi-trailer truck went off the Trans Canada Highway west of Golden at the Quartz Creek Bridge.

RCMP said the driver claimed he hit some bumps in the road which caused him to leave the highway.

Originally RCMP were informed that the driver may have been carrying nitrous oxide.

The RCMP contacted the Golden Fire Department who took every precaution in the situation. Firefighters in protective gear checked out the vehicle.

It was determined that the truck was carrying goods that were only minimally dangerous. None of the load escaped the vehicle.

RCMP wish to remind the public and the drivers of these commercial vehicles to pay close attention when driving in the area.

They added that one of the things that causes many accidents  are drivers who are not paying attention to the roads.

People are also reminded to give proper space between vehicles especially on the highways.

This is important because it will allow a response time to slow down for animals or bad potholes which might not be seen otherwise.
