Speeding, impaired driving present in Kitimat RCMP weekly report

Police briefs from October 10 to 16

Every week, the Kitimat RCMP publishes a list of several of the calls they responded to during that week. Here’s the RCMP’s report for October 10 to 16.

Speeding side-by-side

Shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Saturday October 10, an officer on patrol tried to pull over a side-by-side UTV around Quatsino Blvd. and Cranberry St. However, the UTV sped away when the officer turned on the police car’s lights. The officer did not follow the UTV and it was not found later.

Collision near Cable Car

Around 8:45 a.m. on Sunday October 11, the Kitimat RCMP responded to a complaint of an erratic driver and subsequent single-vehicle collision on Hwy 37 near Oolichan Ave., near the Cable Car subdivision. Once there, a witness identified the driver, who then failed the roadside screening test for intoxication. The driver was issued a 90-day driving prohibition and a 30-day vehicle impoundment.

Election signs damaged

Around 9:20 a.m. on Monday October 12, the Kitimat RCMP responded to a complaint of damaged election signs. Signs belonging to all parties had been damaged in the Nechako area, as well as at the corner of Kuldo and Haisla Blvds. and at the entrance to the Service Centre just past the Haisla Bridge. No suspects have been identified.

Impaired driver at City Centre

At 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday October 13, the Kitimat RCMP received a complaint of an impaired driver in the upper City Centre parking lot. An officer found the vehicle and spoke to the driver. He got the driver to perform a standard field sobriety test, which, based on the results, resulted in the driver being issued a 24-hour driving prohibition.

Hwy 37 speedster

At 12 p.m. on Wednesday October 14, police responded to a driving complaint on Hwy 37 just north of Kitimat. The person stated that a red compact car driving towards Terrace was passing unsafely and going 140 km/hr. The Kitimat RCMP were not in a position to locate the vehicle and notified the Terrace RCMP of the situation.

Throwing out the ammunition

At 8:15 a.m. on Friday October 16, the Kitimat RCMP responded to a complaint from Geier Waste of ammunition in a residents’ curbside garbage. The Kitimat RCMP retrieved the items and are continuing to investigate.
