Lytton RCMP Police Blotter: Alcohol is a factor

Lytton RCMP Police Blotter: Alcohol is a factor

Plus a team effort, and mail theft in Spences Bridge.

By Sgt. Curtis Davis

Lytton RCMP responded to 36 calls for service in the two weeks ending November 17.

Alcohol a factor

A fight at Siska First Nation between two men resulted in the arrest of a 35-year-old man. He was released and will be in court on December 12.

A 23-year-old man was arrested in Lytton for breaking the windows of his family’s house. He was found at the scene, arrested, and held until he was sober. He will be in court on January 16.

Another young man, 21, was arrested in Lytton for punching holes in the walls of his family’s home. Yes, he will be going to court.

All three of these events involved liquor.

Team effort

Just before midnight on November 11, Lytton RCMP responded to an injury collision on the west side of the Fraser River at Lytton. A man and woman who had been passengers in the truck were taken by ambulance to St. Bartholomew’s Hospital while police looked for the truck and driver.

RCMP found a local 20-year-old man trying to drive a severely damaged pickup in which all of the airbags had deployed. He was arrested for impaired driving and given a court date for January 16. And it wasn’t even his truck!

Many thanks to Lytton fire, ambulance, and ferry personnel. This was a great team effort, and nobody was seriously injured.

Mail theft in Spences Bridge

Police received a report about the theft of mail from a post office box in Spences Bridge. Unfortunately, the crime was reported almost a week after it had been discovered. That delay limited what police could do with the information.

Drive to conditions

With all of the rain we’ve had, take care when driving. Watch for rocks on the road, and adjust your speed for the season.
