Weekly RCMP report

• 911 is for an emergency. Now we hate to get technical, however, just because an individual thinks it is an emergency does not mean it is an emergency. In addition, as amazing as we think we are, Police don’t do everything, well I guess we do, however, the results may not be what you expect.

         • Where am I going with this? Well if you call 911 because you locked your keys in your vehicle and you want the RCMP to open it. Well, we are not locksmiths, but we could break a window. OK, we would not do that unless it was an emergency, such as infant is locked in the vehicle and it is too hot.

         • OK, the moral of the story is it was not an emergency and not a good use of 911.

         • We are still looking at having people join the Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network.  To sign up go to www.saskcrimewatch.ca.  This is how you find out about crimes and criminals in the area. You don’t have to do anything but listen or read. You can get a text message, email, or if your only thing is a physical land line, you can get a voice recording of what our message is.  As my colleague in Moosomin stated “Knowledge is power.  Choose to be powerful”

         • Be careful if you smoke. Make sure you know where your cigarette buyts end up. If the grass is dry it can catch fire, a plastic cup is not a good ashtray, nor is a garbage bag with garbage in it. Flower pots are also bad choices. The “soil” is very combustible, being it is not truly soil. .

         • We have had quite a few child welfare calls as of late as well as mental health files. We understand parenting can be frustrating, however, your child refusing to listen to you is a parenting issue, not a policing issue.

         • Some people wreck it for all people. If you are operating an ATV or snowmobile, depending on the season do not be operating it on somebody else’s land without their knowledge or permission. Farmers particularly get upset when you drive across their freshly seeded crop. An $80 ticket was issued for operating an ATV on private land without permission.  

         • Now, if you happen to leave an outside door of an establishment open or unlocked, do not be surprised that someone may go in and damage or kick in an inside door. If you know who broke into the Memorial Hall in Carlyle please contact our Detachment. Although it does not appear anything was stolen, there was damage.

         • I know I trust my friends. That said I don’t trust them with my credit card or bank card information. Someone trusted the wrong “friend”. Thus we are investigating an incident involving a bank card and unlawful withdrawals.

         • We assisted the Saskatchewan Highway Patrol with an impaired driver they arrested. Samples of 130 and 120 mg% were obtained. The driver did not have their licence seized, because they did not have one. tsk, tsk.

         • We continue to investigate a Break and Enter which has resulted in a Search Warrant in the Fillmore Detachment area and two arrests. We are a long way from wrapping this up, however, we thank the public that assisted in this matter.

         • Members wrote approximately 20 tickets and 15 warnings over the last week.

         • Tickets were issued for fail to produce registration certificate - $100, fail to stop at stop sign - $230, backing when unsafe - $125, insecure load - $175, fail to wear seatbelt - $175, fail to yield to on coming traffic when making left hand turn - $230, and fail to dim headlights when approaching on coming traffic - $125 and most expensive speeding ticket was for $300.

         • Warnings were issued for operate an unregistered trailer, disobey stop sign, speeding, excessive damage to windshield, fail to wear seatbelt, passing when unsafe, open liquor in a vehicle and use a cell phone.

         • Inspection notices were issued for window tint.
