Ashcroft RCMP: Stolen ATV recovered

Ashcroft RCMP: Stolen ATV recovered

Plus watch ou for wildlife on the highways now that sunset is coming earlier.

By Sgt. Kathleen Thain

Ashcroft RCMP responded to 48 calls for service in the two week period from November 15 to 30.

Stolen ATV recovered

On November 18, a green Yamaha ATV was stolen from Quality Glass and Tire in Ashcroft. The complainant was able to follow a suspect on the ATV for a short period. Later in the day, a BC Conservation Officer noted a matching ATV and was able to pull it over, then notified the RCMP.

Ashcroft and Clinton RCMP responded and a male was arrested for possession of stolen property, prohibited driving, and theft of a motor vehicle. The name is not being released until charge approval by the Provincial Crown Counsel.

Apply early for liquor licences

The RCMP are part of the process for citizens applying for a liquor licence; and with the upcoming Christmas party planning season upon us, it is suggested that you submit your applications online at least two weeks prior to the event. We have had some people who come in two days prior to their event, and that is not enough time to process and approve.

Oh deer

On November 23 on Highway 1 a vehicle hit a deer, causing extensive damage to the vehicle. Drivers are reminded that with the change in light being earlier in the day, there is now a higher chance of coming into contact with wildlife on our highways and roads.

Don’t drug and drive

On November 27 Ashcroft RCMP conducted a traffic stop, and as a result seized a small amount of marihuana from the vehicle. Marihuana is not legal yet, and will cause driver impairment if used prior to driving. Let’s keep our roads safe and drive responsibly. Alcohol, and some prescription and illicit drugs, do not mix with driving or being in care and control of a motor vehicle.

The Ashcroft RCMP wants to wish everyone a safe holiday season this year. Let’s work together to keep our communities safe.

If you have information about any police files or crimes, please contact the Ashcroft RCMP at (250) 453-2216, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
