Police Report – Assaults and Impounds

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Rock used as weapon

Aug. 27 at 4 pm a 70 year old woman complained that her son’s 47 year old girlfriend came after her with a large rock while she was visiting them on the Bonaparte Reserve. She said the rock was thrown at her car, breaking a window. The matter is still under investigation.

Music too loud

Aug. 31 at 1:30 am police attended a noise complaint at the Mesa Vista Trailer Court in Ashcroft and spoke to a 21 year old man, who did not think his music was loud but agreed to turn it down anyway. While the officer was sitting in his car outside the residence, the man turned the volume up again – twice as loud. The officer spoke to him again and had him come outside to listen to it. He turned it down again.

Police were called back the following night at 1:15 am for another noise complaint. The man was spoken to once more. The complainant was advised to document all noise infractions and notify the Village’s bylaw officer, who is authorized to issue fines.

Beer can assault

Aug. 31 at 1:30 am police attended an assault on the Ashcroft Reserve after a 43 year old woman advised that she had been struck in the face several times with a beer can by her son. The 24 year old man was arrested and signed a notice to appear. The following morning, the woman denied being hit with a beer can and said she fell and hurt her face.

Cash stolen

Sept. 1 police were advised of a break and enter at a Cache Creek residence on Maclean Cres. The 42 year old resident advised that someone had ripped the screen off of a basement window and entered the house, taking a safe from the closet that contained about $500. Nothing else was disturbed. The incident is thought to have occurred around 2 am on the 31st. The matter is still under investigation.

Didn’t learn anything

Sept. 2 at 9 am officers were conducting speed enforcement on Hwy 1 at Cornwall Rd. and stopped a southbound Accura TL for travelling at 145 kph in the 100 kph zone. The 28 year old Prince George driver was on his way to school in Kelowna. He was given a ticket for excessive speed and his vehicle was impounded for seven days.

Sad to see it go

Sept. 2 at 3:15 pm police were conducting speed enforcement on Hwy 1 at Old Cariboo Rd. in Cache Creek and stopped a 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander travelling at 100 kph in the 50 kph zone. The 39 year old Surrey driver was issued a ticket for excessive speed and his vehicle was impounded for seven days. The man was arrested for obstruction when he stood behind the tow truck to prevent it from towing his vehicle, but released once the tow truck was able to leave.

Deer killed

Sept. 5 at 9:30 am police received two reports of an injured fawn at the side of the road by Sundance Ranch. The deer had been severely injured and police ended its suffering.

Student suspended

Sept. 9 at 11 am police received a report that a 14 year old Ashcroft boy had brought a pocket knife to school with him. The knife was not used in an aggressive or threatening manner, but students are banned from bring weapons of any sort to school and the student was suspended indefinitely.

Homeless man wanted

Sept. 9 at 3:35 pm Husky staff reported that a homeless man was living in the bushes between the Husky and the apartment buildings behind them. The 60 year old Kamloops man was located and found to be wanted on a Canada-wide warant for mental health issues and breach of conditions. He was arrested and transported to Kamloops.

Slapping and shoving

Sept. 9 at 7:34 pm police attended a domestic assault in Walhachin after a couple got into a fight while drinking beer and discussing finances. The 50 year old woman alleged that her 60 year old husband slapped her in the face and caused her bloody lip. The male claimed that she stole his cigarettes and that he shoved her from behind, causing her to fall into a doorway. He was arrested and released on a promise to appear.
