RCMP Report: Teen had his jacket stolen while walking home in evening

A teen was mugged and threatened with a knife in the early evening of Nov. 17.

Theft at GSS

A laptop was reported stolen from Golden Secondary School on Nov. 14.  The laptop had been left outside the music room on a bench when it was taken.  Anyone with information is asked to call the Golden RCMP.

Erratic Driver

Police received a report of an erratic driver travelling north on Hwy 95 on Nov. 18.  The police located the described mini van travelling in excess of the posted speed limit.  The driver, a “new driver”, was issued a violation ticket for speeding and passing unsafely.

Teen Mugged

In the early evening of Nov. 17 a teen was walking home and was approached by an unfamiliar male who demanded the teen hand over his jacket and back pack.

The male threatened that he had a knife.  The teen handed over his items and notified his parents who called police.

Police immediately patrolled the area and began to deliver posters outlining the description of the suspect.  While delivering one of the posters to a business the officer noticed a male matching the description and in fact he was wearing the stolen jacket and carrying the backpack.

The male was arrested without incident and will remain in custody until his next court appearance on Nov. 25.

Missing Picnic Table

Sometime over the past week, a blue wooden picnic table and chairs were taken from outside of the Kicking Horse Chamber of Commerce located at 500 10th Ave North.

The theft is still under investigation, anyone with information is asked  to contact the RCMP.
