Columbia Valley RCMP

This past week, October 21st through October 27th, the Columbia Valley RCMP responded to 29 calls for service. The following are some of the more notable files our officers responded to.

• On Thursday, October 24th at about 8:30 p.m., Columbia Valley RCMP responded to a residence on Old Westlock Mine Road in Invermere for a complaint of an unwanted male who refused to leave. The male departed the residence prior to police arriving. Upon speaking to the complainant the officer learned the male had assaulted an individual on the property before leaving. Police conducted patrols and located the male driving an uninsured pickup truck. The male was arrested for assault and an impaired driving investigation was initiated. The male was held in custody while police continued to investigate the assault and other offences.

• On Saturday, October 26th at about 8:50 a.m., police responded to a two-vehicle collision on Athalmer Road near Lakeview Road in Invermere. The driver of a Suzuki Grand Vitara was west bound on Athalmer Road when she lost control of her vehicle then over-corrected and hit the guard rail and a second vehicle. The second vehicle reportedly had minor damage. Both drivers exchanged information and the second vehicle departed prior to police arrival. The Suzuki had to be towed due to damage to one of the tires. There were no injuries reported.

• On Saturday, October 26th, a resident of Canal Flats reported a theft of sheep horns from his residence on Grainger Road. The theft occurred from a locked shed sometime between October 21st and October 25th. It appeared the sheep horns were specifically targeted as other antlers and tools were untouched.

• On Saturday, October 26th, a theft was reported from a rental unit at the Horsethief Lodge in Panorama. The door to the unit was believed to be left ajar and a TV and other small items were stolen from the rental unit.
