RCMP Report: Stolen car crashes near Heather Mountain

When RCMP arrived on the scene a vehicle, which had been reported stolen out of Calgary, was found in a ditch.

Semi crash

On Nov. 30 a semi unit which was travelling east on Highway 1 drove into a ditch near the Golden scales. The back end of the vehicle went through the cab of the truck after detaching during the accident. The trailer just missed the driver who RCMP described as being very lucky to have not been injured. The vehicle was resting up against a hydro pole after the accident. BC Hydro was notified and went to the scene the following morning when a tow truck came to collect the truck and load out of the ditch.

Crash in the Pass

There was a two vehicle collision at the top of Rogers Pass on Dec. 1. There were no injuries in this accident.

Icy roads in Field

On Dec. 2 there was a number of collisions near Field. RCMP said the area is well known for getting very slippery during this time of the year. People are reminded to take care when driving in the area with winter conditions getting worse.

Deer shot

On Dec. 2 RCMP assisted conservation officers in the initial stages of an illegal shooting of a deer. The animal was left behind after being shot and RCMP seized the deer before they turned it over to conservation who are investigating the incident.

Male sleeps at school

On Dec. 3 there was a report of a male who was lying in a cross walk on 10th Street South. It appeared the male got up off the ground and started to walk towards a local school. When officers arrived on the scene they found the male sleeping in the doorway of a local school. The officers determined the male was heavily intoxicated and arrested him for public intoxication. He was held at the RCMP detachment in Golden until he could care for himself.

Vandals hit vehicle

There was a report made on Dec. 3 about a vehicle on Elk Road which had its windows smashed out. RCMP have no suspects at the present time but an investigation is continuing.

Attack on pop machine

A pop machine outside a local business was damaged on Dec. 4. The incident happened overnight and an investigation is continuing. RCMP are looking at video footage from the scene to aid in their investigation.

Stolen vehicle linked to car invasions

On Dec. 6 there was a report of a single vehicle accident by Heather Mountain. When RCMP arrived on the scene a vehicle, which had been reported stolen out of Calgary, was found in a ditch. The passenger in the car was taken to hospital while police found the driver a short distance away from the vehicle. It appeared the driver was attempting to flee the area. The driver was held in custody at the RCMP detachment as the person was found to have a number of outstanding charges. There were a number of vehicles broken into in Golden on the same evening. It appears some of the vehicles which were broken into were also associated with these two individuals. RCMP continue the investigation and expect to lay more charges in these cases.
