Kitimat police seize cocaine and cash, and other files

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.

April 10

At 11:11 p.m. the police attended on a complaint of a domestic dispute. A 41-year-old woman was arrested for assault following the incident and was released on a promise to appear.

April 11

At 4:27 p.m. the RCMP investigated a disturbance in a home, and later attended the hospital on the same file. 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. The man was released but given a violation ticket for public intoxication on his way out.
