Ashcroft RCMP Detachment Police Report: Attempted theft of pick-up truck

Plus a targeted home invasion in Cache Creek and a road rage incident.

More trouble at card lock

On December 13 there was another issue at the Chevron Card Lock on Highway 1 at Highway 97C. Last week a pick-up truck was reported stolen, and on this occasion there was an attempt to steal another pick-up truck. There was evidence left on the vehicle of the attempt. Patrols have increased in the area, but those who leave their vehicles parked there unattended risk this type of activity right on a major highway. Please take appropriate precautions when leaving your vehicles by using anti-theft add-ons, or have friends check the vehicles.

Home invasion

On December 14 at 6:20 a.m., police had a report of a disturbance at a residence in Cache Creek. Upon arrival police determined that a home invasion robbery had occurred. Police are actively investigating the event. A female occupant of the residence was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and later released. Electronics and a bicycle were stolen. This appears to be a targeted offence, as the suspects appeared to be familiar with the residence and occupant.

Road rage

On December 15 at approximately 3:30 p.m., there was a reported road rage incident that involved a local tow-truck driver being assaulted by another local male driver. Police are recommending a charge of assault on the driver who attended the tow yard and confronted and assaulted the tow-truck driver.

For any information on the above listed files, please contact the RCMP at (250) 453-2216, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
