Bench blaze

On August 5 around midnight, police received a report of a bench that had been set on fire at the corner of Stage Road and Stanley Parke Drive. When police arrived the fire had been put out by the Cache Creek fire department, but there was a distinct smell of accelerant. No one was located nearby, and anyone with information is asked to call the RCMP.

Too much exposure

On August 7 at 5:45 p.m. an employee at the A&W in Cache Creek called to advise police that there was an unknown male in the parking lot with a body part exposed. He was described as a First Nations male between 20 and 30 years old, wearing a black vest and shorts. The complainant ordered the man to leave the property, and he did without incident. He was last seen heading south on Hwy. 97. Police did extensive patrols but were unable to locate him.

Multiple prohibitions

On August 9 at 1 a.m., police received a call about a possibly impaired driver leaving the parking lot of the Oasis Hotel in Cache Creek. The vehicle was described as a white GMC truck, which police located being driven in downtown Ashcroft. It was determined that the driver’s ability to drive was impaired, and he was issued with a 90-day roadside prohibition. A check of his licence revealed the driver was under three separate prohibitions and a suspension. The matter is currently before the court.

Assault charge

On August 9 around midnight, police received a call from a female at Robbie’s Motel in Cache Creek, who claimed she was being assaulted. When police attended they could hear yelling coming from under the bridge, and found a man and woman, both intoxicated, sitting on a sofa under the bridge. The male was on conditions not to possess or consume alcohol, and was arrested. The woman had been struck on the head several times and been bitten hard enough to leave visible marks on her stomach. The male was taken into custody and is currently in custody in Kamloops facing three charges, including assault causing bodily harm.
