RCMP Report: Speeder caught doing 149 km

A vehicle was seized by the RCMP on Sept. 17 for excessive speeding

Golden RCMP received a report of fraud on Sept. 21. A local resident had received a fraudulent cheque from an out-of-country bank account. RCMP says this is the most common type of fraud they see, and are cautioning residents to beware of cheques from out-of-country bank accounts.


On Sept. 19 RCMP received a report from Alexander Park Elementary School that an eight-year-old boy was missing. He got off the bus at the bus stop, and didn’t make it home. Family and police were worried about wildlife and started searching immediately. The boy was found soon after by the bus driver.


A vehicle was seized by the RCMP on Sept. 17 for excessive speeding. The vehicle was moving at 149 kilometres per hour on the main strip in town. RCMP received the call at 9:41 p.m. The vehicle will be impounded for seven days.


The Town of Golden reported to the RCMP that the women’s washroom in the Spirit Square had been vandalized. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the detachment at 250-344-2221.


The Fire Department notified Golden RCMP of a bon fire in the town limits. Police went to the residence and asked them to make the fire smaller. There is no ban on fires as this time, but with the hot and dry weather residents are asked to make sure that their fires are containable.


In the past week Golden RCMP dealt with four 911 hang ups, two false alarms, and five vehicle collisions, none of which were severe.
