POLICE REPORT: Caller concerned for safety of shoe-less person at night

A selection of police files from between December 15 and December 21.

December 15

At 5:57 a.m. police attended to a single vehicle collision at the end of Cable Car on Highway 37. A grey 2007 Nissan Alitma was in the ditch on the northbound lane. A man was with the vehicle and was being treated by paramedics. The roads were noticeably icy at the time, and the person was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The road maintenance contractor was noticed to sand the roads.

The Kitimat RCMP assisted the Terrace RCMP in arresting a man on an outstanding warrant. The Kitimat RCMP say the arrest, around 4 p.m., was done “with difficulties” but the person has been transported to Terrace to attend court.

December 16

At 3:11 a.m. police were called on a report of an intoxicated person urinating on the complainant’s front porch. The caller was actually more concerned for the fact the person was under dressed and was not wearing shoes. Police tracked the foot prints of the suspect to another home, where the owner there said the person had come to the home and was inside sleeping. As the person’s well being was being looked after, police closed the file.

At 5:22 p.m. police were called to a single-vehicle accident on Kitamaat Village Road, about one kilometre from Haisla Boulevard. A tractor-trailer unit had slid off the road during heavy snowfall. There were no injuries reported. Two tow trucks and a heavy loader were used to pull the truck from the ditch. The road was reopened around 2:45 a.m.

December 19

A man on curfew was spotted by police and arrested at the Shell gas station around midnight. The male has a 9 p.m. curfew. Police are recommending weapons charges as well to the Crown due to finding a loaded pellet gun in the person’s back pack on a search.

At 8:40 p.m. the police began investigating a possible theft of a blue Millar welder, last seen at 6 p.m. in a white single cab light-duty truck, with the letters HB on the side. It is possible an employee took the equipment, police say, and the investigation is ongoing.

December 20

Police investigating an alleged assault after finding a woman with a head injury they suspect was from a lamp. The police were called to residence Heron Street on a possible assault, where a number of people had reportedly been drinking. Most people left before police arrived.

A person at Kitimat Hotel was booked in to holding cells until sober after the person was allegedly taking swings at people at the bar. No witnesses were willing to provide statements to police. The man was belligerent and refused police demands, the RCMP say.

December 21

Police attended to Tweedsmuir Avenue and Dunn Street on a report of a fight and screams. A woman was found who told police her intoxicated boyfriend had been causing a scene, but it was all verbal, no physical assaults. The woman was waiting for a ride and police stayed with her until the ride came.

Anyone with information about these or any other crimes are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or call the Kitimat RCMP at 250-632-7111.
