Lytton RCMP: Ongoing problems on Siska Reserve

Plus false 9-1-1 calls and false alarms are nuisances police can do without.

By Sgt. Curtis Davis

Lytton RCMP responded to 35 calls for service between November 17 and December 1.

Three intoxicated men arrested

An ongoing issue on the Siska Reserve resulted in three intoxicated men being arrested on November 25. The initial complaint was that of a man with a rifle threatening to kill another man on the reserve. When police attended they found three intoxicated men pretending to be passed out inside a home. The window had recently been smashed out. An air-soft gun (a toy) was found near one of the men. All were taken into custody, but charges were only recommended against a 26-year-old man.

Nuisance calls

Lytton RCMP responded to three false 9-1-1 calls and three false alarms. It is unfortunate how much time is devoted to these calls.

Collisions common

There were half-a-dozen collisions in the area. One in particular involved a vehicle striking a large boulder at the bottom of Tank Hill, north of Lytton. Thankfully nobody was hurt.

With the holiday season and gatherings of friends and family, please plan for a safe ride home.

If you have information about any police files or crimes, please contact the Lytton RCMP at (250) 455-2225.
