The truck was locked, alarmed, and there was no glass found at the scene. RCMP are still investigating how the truck was stolen.

RCMP in Golden said that there is usually a rapid decline in many of the problems seen throughout the summer.

Files for the department have dropped drastically from the amount they were seeing in August.

The slower time usually last between the end of summer and the start of ski season according to the RCMP in Golden.

Some of the big differences occur in a drop in aggressive driving on the highways where there are fewer drivers on the road. People are reminded to drive carefully both in town and on the highways around Golden.

An 18-year-old male threatened to jump off the CP Rail bridge on Sept. 5.

Once out on the bridge, the male reconsidered and came into the RCMP.

The male was arrested under the Mental Health Act and taken to the Golden and District General Hospital.

RCMP in Golden would also like to remind residents to follow the 30 kilometre per hour speed limit in school zones.

Currently, the RCMP have been giving out “friendly warnings” to drivers, but drivers are reminded to slow down in school zones.

RCMP will be continuing the patrols in those zones and drivers will be fined in the near future for violations.

Drivers are also reminded to be careful of children going back and forth to school both on foot or riding bicycles. Early mornings are busy on the streets of Golden.
