The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Loud music

July 16 at 1:36 am police responded to a noise complaint at the Mesa Vista Trailer Park. Loud music has been an ongoing issue of late. A 21 year old male resident was spoken to and admitted that the music was loud and that he would turn it down.

Sunglasses found

July 16 at 11:04 am a set of Ray-Ban sunglasses was found on the Mesa Vista and turned in to the Detachment.

Sun tanning

July 16 at 2:18 pm police were called to the Boston Flats Trailer Court by an unidentified complainant who said there was an intoxicated woman passed out in a front yard. The complainant was worried about the heat. Police located the 59 year old woman. She was intoxicated, but not passed out. She was wearing a bikini and laying in her own front yard. She advised police that she was working on her tan. The officer suggested that she not overdo it and go back inside where it was cool.

Off to visit the Queen

July 16 at 9 pm police received several calls about a hitchhiker standing in the middle of Hwy 97 by the Loon Lake turnoff, who had nearly been hit by several vehicles. Ashcroft and Clinton RCMP responded and located the young man, who first identified himself as God and that he was from Tuscon, Arizona. He had no identification, no food, no water, no money and no backpack. When asked how he got into Canada, he replied that the Queen of Canada told the border guards to let him pass. He was detained until his identity could be proven. RCMP contacted the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) who confirmed that they had refused entry to a 19 year old man from Tucson. He was given an immigration hearing at the Detachment and said he was on his way to northern Canada to the Queen’s palace. He was released into the custody of the CBSA who escorted him back to the border.

Prescription meds stolen

July 17 a 47 year old man from Upper Fraser Valley reported that a prescription of Demerol pills and a black hoodie ha been stolen from his unlocked 2003 Gray Chevrolet Cavalier some time overnight. It was parked at the Castle Inn. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to phone the police at 453-2216.

Trailer broken into

July 17 a Cache Creek resident reported that items had been stolen from their travel trailer parked on Stage Rd. Entry was gained through an unlocked side window and the suspect(s) stole a large tupperware container of riding gear and some empty DVD cases. They tried to pry the TV off the wall but were unsuccessful.

Disturbing the town

July 17 at 8:55 pm police were called to the Nugget Motel where an intoxicated 22 year old man from 100 Mile House was causing a disturbance by yelling and swearing and waving his fists in the air. The RCMP were on their way when they received another complaint about the same man causing a disturbance at the A&W. He was located there and arrested for causing a disturbance and being drunk in a public place. He was lodged in cells until sober and told he was no longer welcome at the Nugget.

Hammered

July 18 at 7:11 pm police were called to the Nugget where a 68 year old resident was standing in the parking lot, waiving around a hammer and a knife and yelling about drug dealers. He was ordered to put the weapons down, which he did, and handcuffed without incident. He was arrested for uttering threats and for being drunk in a public place and lodged in cells until sober. The matter is still under investigation.

Imagining things

July 20 at 3:07 pm police received a complaint of the theft of cash and a salt and pepper shaker from a locked vehicle at the Dairy Queen in Cache Creek.  The 63 year old woman of no fixed address advised police that someone used a key to gain entry to her car. It was determined that nothing had been stolen and that the woman suffers from undetermined mental health issues.

Early morning run-in

All in the family

Got turned around

Long haul

July 22 at 8:39 pm police received a complaint of a possible impaired southbound driver with Oregon plates heading into Cache Creek on Hwy 97.
