POLICE REPORT: Loud talker at hospital brings out police on Valentines Day and other files

A selection of police files for between February 9 and February 15 in Kitimat.

February 9

Security at the Kitimat Modernization Camp found an intoxicated male in a snow bank, and called the RCMP. Police arrived to find the man being treated by camp medical persons, and the person was then transported back to their room without incident.

At 9:30 p.m. the RCMP were called to Tamitik Arena following a report of an assault. Police learned a 24-year-old man had allegedly punched a 19-year-old man in the face following an altercation in the changing room. The victim was taken to the hospital and the suspect was arrested and later released on a Promise to Appear in court in April.

February 10

Called on a driving complaint at 12:55 p.m., the RCMP went to Oolichan Avenue and Highway 37S, where a complainant said that as she turned on to the highway heading towards Kitimat a driver in a pick-up heading in the opposite direction was overtaking a semi-trailer. Police patrolled for the vehicle was it was not found.

At 11:50 p.m. the police were alerted three possible wolves in the area of Albatross Avenue and Cormorant Avenue. The complainant said the wolves were not aggressive. Sgt. Graham Morgan added at last week’s council meeting that the animals haven’t officially been identified as wolves.

February 11

The Kitimat RCMP were called at 6:07 p.m. on a report of a disturbance. Police found that items had been thrown out of the front door. Police were told by a person at the home that the disturbance was just verbal and not physical. The male had left before police attended.

February 12

A 54-year-old man from Victoria was issued an arrest warrant for failing to attend court. The person had been charged with a fishing offence for fishing with a “prohibited method” and did not attend court as required. Police are attempting to locate the male.

February 14

A male patient causing a disturbance at the Kitimat General Hospital resulted in police attendance. The person was causing a disturbance by talking loudly on their cell phone, police say. The person left before police arrived but the person was found and contacted later by officers.

February 15

A drinking-driving road check on Haisla Boulevard nabbed an intoxicated driver. Police say the driver was chewing bubble gum and denied any drinking but the odour of liquor was smelled. The driver then blew a “warn” rating with a roadside screening device twice, resulting in the 42-year-old driver, from Ontario, receiving a three-day driving prohibition.

At 12:22 p.m. another vehicle was stopped at the road check, and a 36-year-old male from Quebec failed twice the screening device and received a 90-day roadside prohibition and a 30 day vehicle impoundment.

Anyone with information on these or other files can call the RCMP at 250-632-7111 or remain anonymous by calling Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477. If information leads to an arrest or charges you may be eligible for a cash reward.
