Columbia Valley RCMP

This past week, November 4th through November 10th, the Columbia Valley RCMP responded to 66 calls for service. The following are some of the more notable files our officers responded to.

• On Monday, November 4th, several items were turned into the Columbia Valley RCMP that were located in a cardboard box on Athalmer Road. Some of the items in the box included a small amount of foreign currency and coins. The owner can contact the Columbia Valley RCMP to identify and claim the contents.

• On Monday, November 4th at about 3:45 p.m., a pedestrian was struck by a pickup truck at the intersection of 7th Avenue and 4th Street in Invermere. The driver of the pickup truck was eastbound and making a left turn onto 7th Avenue when she struck an eastbound pedestrian. The pedestrian was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. The driver remained at the scene and provided assistance to the pedestrian. The driver of the pickup was issued a violation ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian.

• On Tuesday, November 6th, an individual reported falling victim to a phone scam. The individual received a phone call from a person claiming to be from Service Canada. He was told his social insurance number had been compromised and used for illegal activity. The individual was threatened with arrest and was given the option of setting up a new SIN by purchasing a $500 Google Play. The individual complied with the demand before realizing he had fallen victim to the scam. Police are reminding the public that legitimate organizations will not accept gift cards as payment.

• On Thursday, November 8th at about 8:40 a.m., two separate motor vehicle collisions were reported on Highway 93/95 in Fairmont Hot Springs. The first incident occurred after the driver of a Pontiac Wave lost control of her car and rolled into a ditch. The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The second incident involved a Ford pickup rear-ending a slow moving commercial truck and trailer. None of the occupants were injured. Freezing rain had passed through the area prior to the collisions and played a factor in both collisions.
