Police Report – some people just can’t get along this week

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

The evils of drink

Feb. 4 at 10:30 pm police were called  to a domestic disturbance at a residence on Hwy 1 near the old Christian Ranch after a 44 year old female resident had become intoxicated and was causing a disturbance. She was escorted to another residence in Cache Creek to sober up.

Battling couple

Feb. 4 at 10:50 pm police attended a residence on the Ashcroft Reserve for a reported assault. An investigation of the incident resulted in both a male and female being arrested for assaulting each other. The 23 year old female will appear in Kamloops Provincial Court on March 10 and the 26 year old male will appear on March 13. The assaults resulted in only minor injuries. Liquor was a factor with both parties.


Feb. 6 Gordon McLin, 21, of Cache Creek was convicted of driving while prohibited on Dec. 13, 2013. He was fined $500 with an additional $75 surcharge and given a further driving prohibition for another year.

Fender bender

Feb. 9 at 9:30 am police were called to a two vehicle accident in Ashcroft when a pickup truck rear-ended a 2014 Jeep. Both drivers were on their way to the arena for a minor hockey game. The accident resulted in minor damage, no injuries.

Heat but no fire

Feb. 9 at 11:30 am police were called to assist the Ashcroft Fire Dept. at Ashcroft Elementary School for a suspected fire. The reported smoke turned out to be steam coming out of a furnace stack.

Flying objects

Feb. 9 at 1:50 pm police were called to an Ashcroft residence to assist a mother with her 14 year old daughter. The young lady  had thrown a hard object, striking her 40 year old mother and causing an injury that required stitches. The daughter was remorseful and no charges are being contemplated. The MCFD were notified.
