On April 6 the RCMP were dispatched to a report of two people physically fighting in the area of Fairmont. Members attended the scene and located both parties. It is believed the two got into an altercation after one asked the other to put their dogs on a leash. This matter is currently under investigation.

On April 7 police were made aware of a vehicle that was stolen sometime overnight. The vehicle was taken from a property in the Windermere area and is described as a 2011 Chevrolet three-quarter ton club cab, white in colour. The vehicle has larger tires and a headache rack. Police are asking the public to keep an eye out for this vehicle and to call the local RCMP detachment if located. 

On April 4 the Columbia Valley RCMP were called to the hospital as they were dealing with a patient who had just overdosed on what was believed to be fentanyl. The patient was provided medical care and was recovering. The patient was able to speak with members and advised they were intentionally using illicit drugs but was unaware it was fentanyl.
