Break in at the Riverhouse

On June 20, RCMP received a report of a break and enter at the Riverhouse. The break-in happened sometime overnight.

A driver was turning left to go westbound on Highway 1 and struck a car travelling eastbound.

Both drivers were unharmed in the accident. The driver that was turning left was uninsured and a violation ticket was issued.

False alarms at local businesses

On the afternoon of June 22, Police responded to an alarm from People’s Drug Mart. It was later determined that the alarm had been activated accidentally by an employee.

A night later, the alarm at Signature Clothing was activated. This too was determined to be a false alarm.

Attempted theft

In the early hours of June 26, an intoxicated male attempted to break into a vehicle on the 900 block of 14th St. S. The male had outstanding warrants in Dawson Creek.

He was taken into police custody and spent the night lodged in cells until he had sobered up. He was released with a promise to appear in court in Dawson Creek.

Loud party on 5th St. S.

A group of teenagers were asked to quiet down after their party created a disturbance on the night of June 26. The teens, who were supervised by adults in the house, complied with the request and turned their music down.
