Cache Creek Elementary School has been plagued with incidents of vandalism in recent months.

Ashcroft RCMP Detachment Police Report: School vandalism in Cache Creek

Several incidents of vandalism have been reported at Cache Creek Elementary School, and police will be stepping up patrols.

School vandalism

On September 5 police received a report of ongoing vandalism at Cache Creek Elementary School. Benches at the site have been damaged and windows have been broken. The damage has been repaired, and police will be increasing the number of patrols they make past the site. Anyone who has any information about the vandalism is asked to call Ashcroft RCMP at (250) 453-2216.

Load lightened

On September 10 at 1:45 a.m., police received a report of an accident on Highway 1 east of the former mushroom compost site. A semi-trailer pulling an enclosed trailer had had the second trailer detach from the main unit and roll down an embankment. Police attended and confirmed that the trailer did not contain any hazardous materials; it was filled with dry packing materials. There were no injuries, and the cause of the incident is unknown at this time, although mechanical failure is suspected.

Asleep at the wheel

On September 11 at 11:45 p.m., an officer was dispatched to a collision that took place on Highway 1 near the Walhachin turn-off. A 2016 GMC Sierra pick-up truck had gone off the road and collided with a telephone pole; it glanced off that pole and hit another before going through a fence and coming to rest in a farmer’s field. The driver said that he had been driving all day and had fallen asleep at the wheel. No one was injured in the incident, and no ticket was issued.

Sleeping rough

Police have had reports of people sleeping under the bridge near the post office in Cache Creek, and have also heard about incidents of aggressive panhandling outside some Cache Creek businesses, although none of the incidents have been reported to them. One group of people who were sleeping under the bridge have been moved on. Police ask that incidents of vagrancy be reported to them, and also ask that anyone who is panhandled report the incident to the business owner, who can request the panhandler to leave the premises or call police and ask them to move the panhandler along.
