A selection of recent RCMP policing files, for between April 6 and April 12.

April 6

At 5:45 p.m. the Kitimat RCMP received two reports of four or five dirt bikes in a park on Quatsino Boulevard and Kuldo Boulevard. Two youths were spoken to and warned not to ride their dirt bikes in the park. The youths were apologetic.

April 7

At 11:50 a.m. the RCMP attended to a mischief complaint behind a building at Mountain View Square. Police noted graffiti painted on the business wall and the file remains under investigation.

At 11:45 pm an offier conducted a vehicle stop on Enterprise Avenue, after seeing the car at a burnt out tail light. The driver displayed symptoms of impairment and failed a roadside screening. The 30-year-old Calgary man received an immediate driving prohibition.

April 8

Between 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. two officers conducted seatbelt checks on Quatsino Boulevard at Lahakas. Nine violation tickets were issued for people not wearing seatbelts. The fine for not wearing a seat belt is $167, or $142 if paid within 30 days.

April 9

At 1:45 p.m. the RCMP conducted a vehicle stop in the upper City Centre. The male driver was identified as a prohibited driver and the 36-year-old Kitimat resident had his vehicle impounded and released on a promise to appear.

At 3:30 p.m. the police attended to a call of an assault at the lower City Centre Mall parking lot, and police on investigation found the fight was consensual, but a male does remain under investigation for uttering threats. There were no injuries during the fight.

Police say at the hospital they found a man, in the company of a woman which was contrary to court imposed conditions. A 33-year-old man was arrested and remanded to appear in court in Terrace.

April 12

At 3:30 am. the RCMP issued a search warrant at a home under the Controlled Substance Act and recovered cocaine powder, baggies and approximately $1,000 in cash. Two persons inside the residence were arrested and subsequently released, police say, while the file remains under investigation.

At 9:05 a.m. the police attended to upper City Centre for a report of a disturbance involving an intoxicated male. Police found that the person was not able to care for himself and was taken to RCMP holding cells until sober.
