Police Report – break and enters, dog problems

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Nature calls

Oct. 14 at 3 pm police received a complaint of a dog urinating in inapproriate places at the Mesa Vista trailer park in Ashcroft. The complainant said an owner was walking their dog by their trailer and allowed the dog to urinate on their property. He was concerned that it was aggressive towards his own dog. The complaint was told he needed to talk to the trailer park management to find a solution.

Shots or rocks fired

Oct. 14 at 5:30 pm a male called to report that someone in a passing vehicle fired a .22 at him in Cache Creek, breaking the side mirror of his pickup truck. He advised that a tractor trailer and two pickup trucks were passing him at the time. Police inspected the damage to his vehicle and found no sign of a bullet. It is believed that a rock from the current road construction was responsible for the broken window.

Dog bite at Hihium

Oct. 16 at 3:30 pm police received a report of a dog bite on private property at Hihium Lake. The complainant said he was at his vacation property there and had already been involved in one act of aggression with his neighbour’s five dogs after one came on to his property and tried to attack his dog. The aggressor was muzzled. Later the same day another of the dogs ran at him on his property, knocked him down and bit him on the arm. The matter is still under investigation by RCMP and SPCA.

Business break and enter

Oct. 18 at 9 am police received a report that Natures Gifts on Railway Ave. in Ashcroft had been broken into. A witness walking past the store noticed that nearby wires had been cut and the back door had been forced open. The owners were contacted and confirmed that approximately $3,000 worth of silver and stone jewellry, a $300 float and a Toshiba laptop were missing. It is believed to have happened between 2 am and 9 am that morning. Anyone noticing any suspicous people or vehicles nearby during that time is asked to call RCMP at 453-2216.

On Oct. 19 Ashcroft Work Wear called to report that the phone lines to their store had been cut. It was noticed only when the debit card machine wouldn’t work. The store was not broken into, but it is believed to be related to the break and enter of Natures Gifts next door.
