RCMP Report: Stolen vehicle found damaged the following day

Cases of vehicle thefts continue to be higher than normal in Golden, with police believing a series of the thefts are linked.

Neighbourly dispute

On June 6, police were called to a house on the 400 block of 9th Avenue South after reports were received of a disturbance between two neighbours.

The neighbours were reportedly yelling and screaming at each other. RCMP mediated the dispute and the neighbours agreed to leave each other alone.

Stolen Ford Contour

RCMP responded to a call of a stolen Ford Contour from the Columbia Basin Trust parking lot on June 6. The vehicle was located the following day, buried in the bush out of town.

There was some damage to the vehicle, which was located on Golden Upper Donald Road. The incident is still under investigation.

Male passes out

Police responded to reports of a passed out male on a park bench on June 7.

The man spoke to police, but was unable to identify where he lived. As a result, he was arrested and held in a cell until he was sober.

Series of noise complaints

On June 8, police received a noise complaint from a home near Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. The homeowner agreed to turn the music down and there were no more issues.

On June 11 police received a report of a neighbourly dispute between a pair of tenants in the same building.

Police mediated the issue, which was over noise, and no further incidents were reported.

Finally, on June 12, police received a noise complaint at 11:42 p.m. The residents agreed to turn down the music.

Police are reminding individuals to be respectful of all their neighbours as we head into the busy summer party and barbecue season.

Intoxicated driver at Cedar Lake

A driver in a Ford F150 was taken into custody after he showed symptoms of impairment while driving in the Cedar Lake area.

The 46 year-old from Surrey was given a 90 day suspension and his vehicle was impounded.

Local’s computer hacked

RCMP responded to a report of a hacker who stole some business files from a local on Golden Donald Upper Road.

The hacker sent a message that the files would be destroyed unless he/she was paid $500. The file remains under investigation.

Rash of stolen trucks continues

Police received a report on June 11 from a local business on 11th Avenue North that a grey pickup had been stolen sometime between June 6 and 9.

The theft is another in a line of pickup trucks that have been stolen in the Golden area in recent weeks.

Police believe that the incidents are linked and are continuing to investigate the matter.
