Police Report – suspicious thieves and he said, he said, he said…

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Thieves caught

Apr. 25 at 5 am police were called to the Cache Creek Husky for a suspected impaired driver. Police arrived and found a male and female in the store and discovered that they were acting strangely because they were stealing merchandise. The Prince George pair were not only to be in possession of stolen merchandise (sunglasses, hats, etc.) but were also on condition not to have contact with each other because of alleged previous thefts together. Jesse Bird, 31 and Ursula Monk, 29, were arrested and charged with possession of stolen property and breach of conditions not to associate. Two other people with them were not arrested as they were sitting in their vehicle and did not appear to be involved directly with the incident.

Looking for a bed

Apr. 25 at 4:30 pm police were called to the Ashcroft hospital where an intoxicated male was causing a disturbance and refusing to leave. Police arrested the 53 year old Cache Creek man and lodged in cells until he was sober.

Shouting match

Apr. 26 at 8:40 pm police were called to the Ashcroft Reserve for a fight in progress. Officers arrived and found a shouting matching among four men occuring outside a residence, with a few of the neighbours shouting at them as well. There was a report that one of the four involved had a gun, but he was searched and no weapon or any sort was found. All parties involved were from the Reserve, aged 26-54.

Felt slower

Apr. 27 at 10 am police stopped a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer on Hwy 1 by the mushroom plant travelling at 148 kph in the 100 zone. The driver, a 49 year old Lillooet man, said he thought he was only doing around 120 kph. He was issued a ticket for excessive speed and his car was impounded for seven days.

Items stolen from room

Apr. 27 at 7 pm a Cache Creek woman called to report the theft of a laptop, a bike, cigarettes and marijuana from her motel room in Cache Creek. She suspected a trusted friend, a Kamloops man, whom she’d left to look after the room while she was away for a few hours. An investigation determined that there was no evidence to support any charges.

Snooze and lose

Apr. 28 at 10 am police received a report of a man passed out in the Cache Creek Community Park. Police attended and found that the 26 year old Cache Creek man was just sleeping. He was woken up and left the area on his own two feet.

At 1:45 pm police were called to a Cache Creek residence where a family member was causing a disturbance by  being disruptive and disrespectful. An investigation revealed that he was already known to police for actions other than being asleep in the park. The investigation is ongoing and charges are contemplated against the 26 year old Cache Creek man.
