RCMP Report: Several reports of vandalism to vehicles

Because occurrences of vehicle vandalism don’t usually occur this frequently, RCMP aren’t ruling out the possibility they are connected.

Vandalized vehicles

The RCMP are investigating a number of incidents of vandalism to vehicles in town. On Oct. 10, a man discovered that both of his windows had been smashed in when he picked up his vehicle near the Rockwater after leaving it there overnight.

On Oct. 11 a person’s vehicle had its side mirror smashed off. On Oct. 14 a vehicle parked on 8th St. S had its taillights smashed in and on Oct. 16 a person discovered that their vehicle had its front windshield smashed while it was parked for a couple of days near Reflection Lake.

Because occurrences of vehicle vandalism don’t usually occur this frequently, the RCMP aren’t ruling out the possibility that these incidents could be connected. Anyone with information about these crimes is urged to contact Golden RCMP.

Fatal accident on Highway 95

RCMP are investigating a single vehicle accident that occurred at 5 p.m. near Spillamasheen. The investigation has determined that a north bound 1992 Acura left the roadway and rolled over after impacting the bank of a creek. The road conditions were reportedly good at the time of the collision.

The lone male occupant was deceased when police arrived at the scene. Any potential witnesses are asked to contact Sgt. Mike Pears of the Trans Canada Traffic Services unit in Golden at 250-344-4002.

Fight in Spillimacheen

RCMP members responded to reports of a fight in Spillimacheen on the evening of Oct. 15. When police arrived, one woman had sustained a knife wound to her arm. This was the second time this month that police have attended this address for a slashing or stabbing.

The 22 year-old man accused of the stabbing is currently being held in police custody because of his criminal history and the severity of this incident.

Two shoplifting incidents in town

Police were called to Higher Ground Mountain Sports at 5:20 p.m. on Oct. 17 to investigate a female shoplifter. The woman had attempted to steal a few toques. Also on Oct. 17, police were called to The Bargain Shop to investigate a caucasian that was observed stealing candy before she eventually ran down the street.
