Police Repot – Tangled leashes and bad behaviour

The weekly crime blotter from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment.

Travel Centre broken into

Feb. 17 police were called to look into a break in at the new Ashcroft Esso Travel Centre on Cornwall Rd. by the racetrack. Video surveillance showed that around 1:30 am, a purple or dark blue four-door car pulled up and two males and two females exited. The suspects broke into an area where an addition was being built and made off with power tools worth approximately $3,000 including a jackhammer, a chop saw and gas cans. The suspects were observed on tape inspecting cigarette buts left behind in the parking lot. Anyone with information on the identity of these people is asked to contact the RCMP at 453-2216.

Get a room

Feb. 19 at 2 am police attended the Chevron to assist ambulance attendants with two unruly, slightly intoxicated adults found sleeping on the floor in the store. The couple became more co-operative once police had arrived. The 42 year old Kamloops man said they were just looking for a place to warm up. He and a 47 year old Kamloops woman said they were hitchhiking to Clinton. They left the building to resume their travels.

Dog walkers clash

Feb. 19 at 6 pm police received a complaint of assault after a man out walking his dog on Brink St. in Ashcroft said he was kicked in the stomach repeatedly by another man out walking his dogs. The 42 year old Ashcroft man said he was walking his dog when they were approached by the suspect, a 43 year old Ashcroft man, who was walking two dogs. The dogs were excited and became entangled. The suspect started kicking at the dogs and when the victim tried to separate them, he said the suspect kicked him several times. The suspect was located and arrested. He will be in court on March 26 to answer to the charge of assault.

Couple’s dispute turns on son

Feb. 19 at 6:35 pm police were called to an Ashcroft home for a family dispute which began as an argument between a husband and wife and ended with an assault on their teenage son who tried to intervene. The intoxicated male agreed to go sleep it off in a Cache Creek motel and was given a ride by RCMP. The matter is still under investigation.

Still some ice out there

Feb. 20 at 7:30 am police attended a single vehicle accident on Hwy 1 just east of Cache Creek when a 2000 GMC Sierra ended up in the ditch. The driver, a 47 year old man from 100 Mile House, said he lost control on the slippery roads as it had rained overnight and then froze in spots. He was examined by ambulance attendants and received no serious injuries. His truck had to be towed for repairs.
