Police Report – dog bites and indecent acts

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment

Indecent act on highway

Nov. 3 police received a complaint that the previous morning at 8 am, an unknown man was seen exposing himself in public near the Thompson River Estates bus stop on Hwy 1 near a silver two-door car while masturbating. The witness did not provide any further description of the man or the vehicle. Anyone with more information is asked to contact the RCMP at 250 453-2216.

Attempted theft of liquor

Nov. 5 at 3:30 pm the Cache Creek Liquor Store reported an attempted theft of liquor by a woman. She was intercepted by staff before she exited and abandoned three bottles on the counter before running out the door. A vehicle was stopped in Ashcroft 15 minutes later matching the description given and a 46 year old Williams Lake woman was arrested. She was not in possession of any stolen property, so she and her Kamloops passenger were allowed to go.

Dog bitten by another

Nov. 5 around 3:45 pm two children who had been out walking their dog were attacked by another dog near the Ashcroft school. The children were unharmed, but their dog was seriously injured. The children reported to their parents that another boy had purposely told his dog to attack them. All of the children were under the age of 16. The matter is still under investigation. Anyone witnessing the incident is asked to contact RCMP at 453-2216.

Driving with expired license

Nov. 6 at 9:30 pm Traffic Services officers were conducting a road check on Hwy 97 near 16 Mile when they stopped a Dodge Ram pickup. The officer detected an odour of marijuana and arrested the driver, seizing a small bag of marijuana from him. The 27 year old Whistler man was found to be driving with a license that expired in October and was issued a ticket for failing to provide a valid Drivers License to police. His parents in Salmon Arm were called to come and pick up his vehicle and give him a ride home.

Drugs seized

Nov. 6 at 11:30 pm in the same area, Traffic Services officers stopped a 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser and officers noted an odour of marijuana. Two small bags of marijuana were seized from both the driver, a 22 year old Toronto man, and his passenger, a 26 year old Kamloops man. Neither appeared to under the influence and were allowed to continue on their way.
