Lytton RCMP police files

A theft from a CN vehicle, good homes found for dogs, anti-bullying presentations, and more.

By Sgt. Curtis Davis

Lytton RCMP responded to 73 calls for service during the period February 9 to March 8, 32 of which were traffic-related.

Prohibited driver

On February 14, a known prohibited driver was spotted on Main Street in Lytton. The 31-year-old Lytton woman was stopped, and it was confirmed that she was prohibited from driving. Her vehicle was impounded, and she will appear in court later this spring.

Good homes found for dogs

On February 23, an extended family member turned over two malnourished dogs from a residence in Lytton. The dogs were cared for by one of our constables for a week-and-a-half until they could be adopted by families on Vancouver Island.

Theft from CN vehicle

On February 28, we responded to a complaint of a theft from a CN vehicle parked in Spences Bridge. The fuel card was stolen and later used at Boston Bar and Hope. We are working with our colleagues at those detachments to identify the thief.

Assault complaint results in multiple charges

On March 2, we attended a complaint of an assault north of Lytton. A 24-year-old Lytton male has been released on multiple conditions, pending his next court date on March 13. He has been charged with two counts of assault, uttering threats, and break and enter.

Anti-bullying presentations

Constable Johnson and Constable Robichaud did anti-bullying presentations for the entire school populations at both Kumsheen Secondary School and the Stein Valley School. The presentation covered the complete range of bullying behaviour, from pushing in the playground to social media.

We are all looking forward to spring. Be aware of the variable road and weather conditions that this time of year brings.

If you have information on any police files or crimes, please contact the Lytton RCMP at (250) 455-2225, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
