Services Report: Golden-Field RCMP receiving less calls for service

Golden-Field RCMP

The Golden-Field RCMP had 59 calls for service in the past week, including but not limited to 12 collisions, 11 traffic complaints, eight abandoned 911 calls, and five thefts. Nine of the 12 collisions occurred on October 1 and 2.

Gordon Poitras was arrested by Golden-Field RCMP on October 8 after police received a complaint that he was an unwanted guest at a property in Golden. The Golden-Field RCMP had been looking for Poitras as it was alleged that he committed a break and enter and mishchief to a property in Nicholson on October 1. Poitras was subsequently arrested and charged with break and enter and mischief.

Poitras was brought before a judicial justice on October 9 and released. He is scheduled to appear in court in Golden on October 16.

Golden Fire Rescue

Last week, Golden Fire Rescue responded to a number of calls for service and highway crashes.

None of the highway crashes resulted in extrication of occupants, although the vehicles were assessed for fire and life safety hazards upon arrival on scene by personnel.

Fire crews also responded to a fire in a storage building on Thursday evening. The fire was contained to the area of origin, and damage was limited to one end of the building. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Golden Fire Rescue also provided training for day care providers on how to use a fire extinguisher on October 6.
