Police Report – drugs go missing, sugar shows up in gas tank

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment

Bad dreams

Jan. 21 at 2:05 am RCMP were called to a residence on the Bonaparte Reserve by a homeowner whose guest was going berserk. The complainant said the 52 year old man had woken up in the middle of the night and was walking into walls and behaving erratically. The complainant thought he might be intoxicated. Police arrived and  spoke to the man who was not intoxicated. The man said he had awoken from a bad dream and was upset and disoriented. BC Ambulance arrived and examined the man, who was uninjured and ready to go back to sleep.

Nothing sweet about it

Jan. 22 a 53 year old woman from the Ashcroft Reserve called to report that sometime around Christmas, someone had poured sugar in the gas tank of her brand new vehicle which was parked at her residence. The vehicle broke down as she was driving it to Kamloops and has been in the repair shop since then as the mechanics worked to determine the cause of the problem. The incident was being reported for insurance purposes.

Prescription drug stolen

Jan. 22 at 4:36 pm a 59 year old woman reported that prescription drugs and some food had been stolen from her room at the Nugget Motel in Cache Creek. She said her front door was unlocked for an unknown amount of time on Jan. 18 after which her Percocet, Adavan, an inhaler and some food were missing.

License plate stolen

Jan. 25 a Mount Currie man reported that the license plate and validation tag were stolen off of his pickup truck after the truck was parked overnight in Ashcroft. The license plate is EK 6862. Anyone seeing the plate is asked to phone RCMP at 453-2216.

Speeding station wagon

Jan. 25 at 4:51 pm officers patrolling Hwy 1 near the Christian Ranch east of Cache Creek spotted a vehicle travelling at 154 kph in the 100 kph zone. The Subaru station wagon was stopped and the 46 year old Revelstoke man was issued a ticket for excessive speed. His car was impounded for seven days.

Attempted murder with a 2×4

Jan. 27 police received a complaint from a 32 year old Cache Creek man that he was assaulted while on a work site two weeks ago. The complainant stated that while at the construction site, his employer asked him to stand in a specific spot so that he could get hit by a 2×4 that had a nail in it, and he wanted his employer charged with attempted murder. The man was advised that it was a Workers Compensation issue and not a police matter.
