Police Report – Trailer, appliances, frozen beef stolen

The weekly crime blotter from the files of the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Trailers collide

Nov. 27 police were asked to investigate a hit and run in the Cache Creek Husky parking lot after a tractor trailer reported damage. The truck had been parked there since the weekend and it was suspected that another tractor trailer was the culprit. The truck was registered to a company in Williams Lake and the driver was a 45 year old Williams Lake woman.

Thief grabs the beef

Dec. 1 police received a report of the theft of frozen meat from Heartlands Restaurant in Cache Creek after it was discovered that $2,000 worth of meat had been stolen from the restaurant’s freezers some time overnight. There were no signs of forced entry outside the restaurant, but once the suspect managed to enter the restaurant, they forced open the storage area where they stole the meat, some alcohol and a space heater. The matter is still under investigation.

Sleepy driver causes accident

Dec. 1 at 9:30 am police attended a two car accident on Hwy 97 by the Bonaparte reserve after a northbound 1999 Chrysler Intrepid served into the path of a southbound Dodge Caravan pulling a trailer. The car hit the trailer, sending the driver to Kamloops hospital with minor injuries. It is suspected that the driver, a 43 year old Surrey man, nodded off behind the wheel. His passenger was not injured, nor was the driver of the Caravan, a 72 year old Lillooet man. Charges are pending against the Surrey driver.

Abandoned trailer burned
