RCMP Report: Suspected local drug dealer arrested

After an investigation that has been ongoing since April of this year, a search warrant was executed on a local drug house.

The Golden Detachment of the RCMP responded to 47 files this week, and a rare week without a single motor vehicle accident.

 

On Oct. 5, police responded to a complaint of a unidentified person in someone’s residence.

A male had walked into the woman’s residence and fallen asleep on the floor, and when she saw him there at 3 a.m. she called the police. RCMP located and identified the male, who was a local 22-year-old. The male was intoxicated, and currently has no home. He has been couch surfing with various friends.

Golden RCMP usually three or four calls like this a year.

Police would like to remind people that even if it is a mistake, entering someone’s home could bring on a break and enter charge.

They would also like to remind residents to lock their doors.

 

This summer the RCMP have been busy with multiple complaints about dogs in rural areas. Dogs barking and running loose have resulted in multiple neighbour disputes.

Police are asking people to be aware of their neighbours and keep their pets secured on their property.

There have also been issues in the Mountain Shadows trailer park where someone has been shooting residents’ pets with a pellet gun. If anyone has any information about this, please contact the RCMP, as it is cruelty to animals.

 

On Oct. 9 there was a call about an attempted break and enter at about 5 p.m. Nothing was taken, and no suspect was apprehended. If anyone has any information, please contact the RCMP.

 

Over the long weekend, the Golden RCMP participated in a national driving campaign. The focus was on four national priorities; impaired driving, distracted driving, speed, and seatbelt violations.

They set up and various locations throughout the weekend around Golden and area.

 

Police continue to receive reports from residents who have received notice by mail that they are potential beneficiaries to an estate. In most cases, the estate worth is alleged to be worth millions of dollars. These funds are reportedly held in other countries and the author identifies themselves as a Barrister who will stand up in the country’s court on your behalf to make claim to the estate.

Once a victim makes contact with the author of the letter, the Barrister then states that before the process can begin, they require prepayment to secure their services. They will continue to communicate with the victim requesting more and more funds for court filing costs etc.

There are various frauds such as these. There is no one business, or country from which these frauds originate. Always remember, if it sounds too good, then it likely is.

 

After an investigation that has been ongoing since April of this year, a search warrant was executed on a local drug house. Police were investigating the resident as a drug dealer, working mainly with crack and cocaine.

On Oct. 7 police searched 512 11th Street South, and arrested Jacob Mcguinness outside of the home. Cocaine, crack cocaine and pills were found on his person. Larger quantities of the drugs, as well as paraphernalia that showed he was trafficking was also found in the house.

Mcguinness will appear in court in Golden on Nov. 27, most likely by video conference.
