Weekly RCMP report

         • We again lucked out and 911 was not called by mistake. We did, however, have 3 false alarms. As you can imagine we don’t rush to alarms. 

         • We assisted several other Detachments and Police Services with serving documents or arresting individuals on their warrants.

         • If you think there are more of us around, well there are. Cst. COX joined us from Biggar and Cst. GLASSER from La Loche. They have been an excellent addition to the Traffic Unit and Detachment.

         • A prolific offender has recently been released. This individual is well known for stealing trucks. I am not saying their behaviour was not modified while they were in the Correctional Facility, however, I am saying you should lock your vehicles.

         • I know we can never say it enough, but don’t take a cheque from someone you can’t trust, heck, sometimes you shouldn’t take one from someone you can trust. Our related fraud file was resolved without charges.

         • If someone is harassing you via text message or social media, block them. It is the simplest and most successful way to end your grief.

         • We had a report of 4 intoxicated teens approximately 20 years old walking on a road. Yup 20 year old teens, I had thought teen only went up to nineteen?  We found them and we provided them a ride to a safe location.

         • If your child takes your vehicle and they are drunk and you call the Police, but you don’t want us to do anything? Trust me we will come a looking, being we are concerned about the impaired driver. On this occasion we could not find the driver. Lucky for them, if we did we would have arrested them.

         • We have had a couple people come in requesting Peace Bonds. I have never been involved with one being normally once the story is told we have enough to lay Criminal charges and put the other party on conditions of no contact. This is quick, where a Peace Bond is not and requires both sides to go to court and explain why a Peace Bond is necessary. I would suggest that these individuals are just wasting their time and ours.

         • In addition, being harassed is not Criminal unless you fear for your safety, as in life and death or serious injury. Fearing someone is not enough. Trust me, when my wife is mad I fear her and I may think she is harassing me, but it is not Criminal . . . wait, no I am safe she rarely reads these articles.

         • A neighbour dispute continues. Apparently one adult is upset at the children living with the other adult being it is alleged their children had stolen toys. Fear of violence was reported. When we asked if there were any weapons involved we were advised there were no guns but they have some sticks. I am sure we will come back and visit these folks again, especially when they both keep at each other on social media. On a side note, we did not seize any sticks.

         • If you are in one province and think you can threaten someone in another province and get away with it you are wrong. It does complicate the investigation slightly, but we will bring you here to be dealt with. We are presently working with Brandon Police Service where we both have a vested interest in the same accused.

         • A 12 year old allegedly took a family member’s car. The vehicle was located in another Detachment area and the parents attended and picked up the wayward youth and the vehicle. 

         • Members responded to a report of younger adults shooting fireworks at each other. The caller was not too concerned about the individuals shooting the fireworks, rather about the fireworks hitting residences and vehicles. We located the individuals and tried to educate them about their lack of judgement. I did say try. All we can do is try.  

         • A traffic stop was conducted due to an obstructed licence plate. The resulting investigation determined the driver was disqualified and on Probation for which they were charged and the vehicle seized. Now you wonder why we deal with the little things? Here is a perfect example where we deal with a small thing and find so much more.

         • So you are in a new relationship and you are well known to the Police in the area you live and choose to move in with your new romantic interest and think nobody will notice. You can’t just move without advising the Police. We will find out. Unfortunately, for one of our new community members they found out love does not trump the Criminal Code and they were charged for breaching their release conditions.  

         • We have been chasing noisy vehicles and fortunately caught one. Folks just because you can make noise with your vehicle doesn’t make it legal.

         • So you think you might be able to get away with using cannabis and driving. One individual found out they were wrong and received a 72-hour suspension.

         • With all the rain and the darkness we received several calls about intoxicated individuals on the highways or individuals that people feared may get struck by a vehicle. Patrols were made and we actually found each individual we looked for and provided them safe rides.

         • We had a collision with a deer reported. The deer chose to not remain at the scene and give their side of the story.

         • We had an individual that attended court and stated to the Judge that the ticket for a cell phone violation showed “None” as the middle name and that was not their middle name. This is automatically filled on the ticket when it is printed. The Judge therefore tossed the ticket. The Member therefore went and re-issued the ticket. Still a win for us but the violator was sure upset. With the assistance of SGI this issue is being rectified.

         • We had approximately 25 tickets and 30 warnings written over the last month.

         • Tickets were written for no insurance -$580, stop sign -$230, fail to wear a seatbelt - $175, fail to produce registration certificate -$100, drive without a drivers licence $150, use a cell phone - $280, inadequate headlamps - $115, fail to produce drivers licence - $100, cause unnecessary noise with exhaust or muffler - $100, and window tint- $115 and the most expensive moving violation tickets were exceeding speed limit in a school zone - $310, exceed 60 km/hr when passing an emergency vehicle - $318, speeding - $302, $322, $348 and $854.

`• Warnings were issued for no drivers licence, no registration, drive with an obstructed plate, fail to produce drivers licence, fail to display licence plate, fail to move to right when approached by an emergency vehicle, fail to wear seatbelt, speeding and fail to stop at stop sign.

                  • Inspection notices were issued for inadequate muffler or exhaust, inadequate daytime running lights, inadequate windshield, auxiliary lamp mounted higher than headlights and inadequate mudflaps.
