Pills found

Lost in a backyard

May 17 a Cache Creek resident on Sunvalley Cres. complained that there were two unknown males in his backyard during the night. He spoke to them briefly and they told him that they were lost. The young males were described as one white male wearing a dark shirt and pants and one aboriginal male wearing a dark hoodie. Neither were located.

Worried daughter

May 19 police were contacted by a Quesnel woman who was concerned because she could not contact her mother in Ashcroft. An officer investigated and found the 82 year old mother at a friend’s farm, helping with the planting.

Litterbugs

May 19 police received a complaint of littering on Hwy 1 near Walhachin. The complainant advised that the occupants were throwing pop cans out of the windows and provided a license plate. The vehicle was not located, but the Registered Owner in Lillooet was contacted and warned.

Greener pastures

May 22 at 10:30 am police were notified that a herd of cows was wandering down Hwy 1 about 13 km south of Ashcroft. They were herded back off the road and the Basque Ranch was asked to retrieve their cows. The animals escaped through a hole in the fence.

Nap time

May 23 at 7:45 pm police were advised of a possibly impaired truck driver who was driving erratically northbound on Hwy 1. The truck was located and stopped just outside of town. The driver was not impaired, but was tired. A quick look at his log book resulted in a ticket for failing to maintain his log as it indicated that the driver was supposed to be sleeping at that moment. The 53 year old Surrey man agreed to pull into the Husky and spend the night there.
