Police Report – Bad weather still causing accidents

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

No license, no truck

Jan. 9 at 1:50 pm Traffic Services stopped a 1996 GMC Sierra on Hwy 97 near the Bonaparte Bend Winery after receiving information that the 46 year old driver was driving without a license. The resident of the Bonaparte Reserve did not have a valid Drivers License and was issued a ticket for driving without a valid license. He was served with a driving prohibition and his vehicle was towed.

An abrupt stop

Jan. 11 at 6 pm police attended a single motor vehicle accident in Thompson River Estates after a 61 year old Surrey man lost control of his 2001 Ford Econoline van on slippery roads and slid through an intersection and hit a power pole, snapping the pole. BC Hydro worked for six hours to secure the pole. The driver was not injured and the van had minimal damage. The driver was lucky to have stopped his momentum with the pole, as there was a 100-foot embankment on the other side of it.

Arrested for theft

Jan. 13 Ashcroft RCMP, acting upon information from the Vernon RCMP Detachment, attended a residence on Stage Rd. in Cache Creek and arrested a 28 year old woman for outstanding warrants out of Falkland related to fraud and theft over $5,000. She was lodged in cells overnight and appeared in Kamloops court the following day.

House arrest

Jan. 14 Ashcroft RCMP were notified that Kaley Suter, 26, would be serving out a 15 month conditional sentence at her parents’ home on Back Valley Rd. in Cache Creek. Suter was convicted in Surrey Provincial Court for theft of motor vehicle and possession of stolen property. She was sentenced to 24/7 house arrest for 15 months, followed by probation.
