Police Report – loose load hits car

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Lost geocacher found

March 31 at 4 pm police received a request for assistance from an out of town geocacher who had parked her car and hiked to a nearby Gold Country geocache and then was unable to locate her car. Kamloops Search and Rescue was also called to assist with the search. Initially, it was thought the 41 year old Yale woman was in the area of Mclean Lake, but RCMP members eventually found her in the Upper Hat Creek area. It had ust begun to snow when she was located, safe and sound. She was 15 km away from her car.

Mending fences

Apr. 4 at 11 am a logging truck tipped over on Hwy 99 and spilled its load onto private property, damaging the fence. The driver agreed to leave the logs to compensate the owner for the damaged fence, but later in the day two men arrived at the site intent on recovering the logs. The property owner called the RCMP to report unwanted people on his land. The call was cancelled as police were en route as the property owner and the men had come to an agreement.

Looking for witnesses

Apr. 6 at 12:45 pm police received a report of a collision on Hwy 1 just south of Basque Ranch near Venables Valley Rd. after a spare tire on a trailer came loose and hit an oncoming car. The vehicle did not stop. The driver, a Williams Lake woman in her 50s, was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The front end of her car, a Toyota Yaris, was damaged extensively. Police are asking for any witnesses to the accident to call them at 453-2216. They are hoping that someone can identify the vehicle hauling the trailer.
