Sun tanning

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.

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.

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.

The matter is still under investigation.
