Police Report – holding grudges, losing parts

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Not asleep at the wheel

Aug. 5 at 3 pm police attended a single vehicle accident on Hqy 1 east of Cache Creek by the Perry Ranch after a 61 year old North Vancouver man drove his vehicle off the road, right. He told police that he was tired but he didn’t think he fell asleep. He thought there might be steering issues with his vehicle. He was not injured but the vehicle was towed.

Vehicle taken for short drive

Aug. 5 at 6 pm police received a report of a stolen vehicle in Ashcroft from a residence on Bancroft St. The owner, an 18 year old Cache Creek man, said he had just parked the car an hour before noticing that it was gone. The keys were still inside the vehicle, he said. The car was located less than an hour later, parked near Railway St. without the keys. Anyone with information about the incident can call police at 453-2216.

Past grudges

Aug. 6 at 5:30 pm police received a report of a road rage assault at the brake check on Hwy 97C that happened earlier in the day. A 59 year old Cache Creek man accused a 48 year old Cache Creek man of cutting him off in traffic three days ago and punched him. The victim did not require medical attention and did not want to press charges but asked police to speak to the aggressor, which they did. The older man apologized for his actions and the victim was satisfied with that.

Victim hit with wrench

Aug. 7 at 1:30 pm police responded to a report of a fight in progress in front of the Castle Inn in Cache Creek. The fight escalated to an assault with a weapon as the 36 year old Cache Creek man produced a wrench during the fight  and struck a 65 year old Cache Creek man several times. The younger man was gone before police arrived, but was located and arrested in Fraser Lake. He will appear in Kamloops court on Oct. 19 to face charges of assault with a weapon. The 65 year old was treated for cuts and bruises. The matter is still under investigation.

Camper loses wheel

Aug. 7 at 7 pm police attended a single vehicle accident on Hwy 1 east of Cache Creek after a camper van lost a rear tire on the driver side. The driver, a 23 year old man from Pennsylvania, was able to pull the vehicle over to the side of the road. No one was injured. The vehicle was towed to Kamloops.

Drugs seized at stop

Oct. 10 at 3 pm while conducting enforcement at Quartz and Stage Rd. in Cache Creek, Traffic Services officers stopped a 2014 Honda Civic for failing to stop at the 4-way stop signs. The officer detected an odour of marijuana in the vehicle and noticed a pipe in plain view. The driver, a 37 year old Prince George man, was arrested. A small amount of marijuana and the pipe were seized. He was also given a ticket for failing to stop. It was determined that he was not impaired and was allowed to continue.
