Corporal Jeff Witzke

Columbia Valley RCMP

This past week, June 19 to June 25, the Columbia Valley RCMP responded to 51 calls for service. The following is a summary of some of the files our officers responded to:

On Monday June 19 police received a mischief report in Radium Hot Springs where a resident’s lawn had been damaged overnight by a vehicle. This is the second time in the past week where someone had purposely drove onto and ripped up the lawn. It is possible a silver coloured pickup truck may be related to this incident and the police are asking anyone with information regarding this matter to please contact the local RCMP detachment. 

On June 21 the RCMP were contacted by a person who had fell victim to a fraud in excess of $5,000. The victim believed he was investing in a company called SeaStock24, however, when they went to pull out their funds the company stopped communicating with them. From what the RCMP can tell SeaStock24 is not a legit company and should not be trusted. 

The RCMP is wishing everyone a happy Canada Day long weekend and want to remind everyone to be safe this summer. Be it on the lakes or rivers, taking in a hike or bike ride on the trails, and especially on the highways, please be respectful, kind and patient with one another. Make good choices. Let’s all work together to make this summer enjoyable for all residents and guests of the Columbia Valley.
