Weekly RCMP report

• The 911 hang-ups have started again. If you call 911 by mistake and hang up we still get the call and we still have to investigate. It does not matter how fast you think you are, technology is faster. We did, however, have numerous false alarms.

            • We need to put out a thank you to TPZ Towing and Bourassa and Sons. It seems one of our "rookies" chose to drive down a road that they should not have driven down and TPZ, although willing to try were not able to get to the Member’s vehicle, well, because they were definitely where they should not have been. The yard tractor and operator came to the rescue. Thank you again.

            • Members attended to a domestic squabble. No assault, no violence, rather the one spouse figured the presence of the Police may calm the situation down. Calm now, not for certain how long though. Maybe some counselling would be in order, however, some people are too proud and too unintelligent.

            • Members attended an assault complaint and were not able to locate either the victim or the accused. Our investigation is continuing.

            • A complainant reported their ex went into their former residence when the complainant was not home. Apparently, the ex also continues to make efforts to communicate via messages. Upon the involvement of the RCMP we believe the ex now realizes the relationship is over. The complainant did not want charges, however, we are certain that if the ex does not grasp it is over they will find themselves facing charges.

            • Carnduff RCMP Members arrested an individual for impaired operation of a motor vehicle and this individual chose to refuse to provide a sample of their breath, which is the same punishment as impaired operation of a motor vehicle. The Carnduff Member then dropped the accused at their residence. The accused subsequently chose to shoot the unoccupied police vehicle several times. The accused fled and was arrested shortly afterward and was remanded in custody and is facing 11 Criminal Code charges. Our Members assisted in the investigation and also provided assistance with scene security.

            • We assisted Wawota and Redvers Volunteer Fire Departments. Fortunately there was only damage and no injuries.

            • Kingston Midstream Parkman terminal was broken into. Our investigation continues.

            • We had a possible intoxicated individual causing traffic concerns on Highway 9 north of Carlyle. We made an immediate patrol, however, the subject either made it to where they were going or got a ride before the arrival of the police. We would like to thank the two callers that took the time to call this report in.

            • Another intoxicated individual was reported to be staggering on the highway. We located this individual and provided them a safe place to rest.

            • It seems it was a week of intoxicated individuals on the highway. Another call, another prisoner who was lodged for the night. Again we would like to thank those that took the time to call us.

 `• If you are not welcome at a residence when both occupants are home, don't expect to be welcome if only one is home. If you show up uninvited, and don't leave, the police will come and make you leave.

            • I would never want to own a company and have to worry about employees. One employer got an employee out of police custody only to have that employee steal a vehicle. Another employer found that a previous employee had forged a bill of sale and was technically the owner of one of their vehicles. The car thief was charged and the other investigation continues.

            • We seem to be getting more calls in relation to people not being allowed to stay, or should not be staying at a residence. Unless there are Criminal Court Documents stating someone should or should not be staying somewhere, we don't get involved. It is not that we don't care, well we don't, but it is civil. We are busy enough and leave the civil stuff for lawyers.

            • An individual was dealing with mental health concerns and was arrested, received a 72-hour suspension and was charged for careless storage of their weapons. They were also provided assistance for their health concerns. It is not normally the route we would take in such a situation, however, we did not have any other options.

            A Red Hawk well services rig had some unwanted visitors who took fuel, a winch and some tools. Our investigation continues.

            If you feel someone is acting out of character or feel that someone may be suffering having mental issues, do not hesitate to contact the police.

            • An intoxicated individual was found to be damaging property. Upon arrest minor damage was done to the patrol vehicle. This accused is well known to our Detachment and remains in custody. It is unfortunate that substance abuse leads to criminal behaviour.

            • One family member has allegedly chosen to cash in a parent's pension and GST cheques. We are investigating. Those that do such things are, let us say, no let us not say. My mom said if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

            • A vehicle was observed doing donuts in the parking lot of the pool in Carlyle by an off-duty Member. Doing donuts - not making donuts. That said, police officers are attracted to individuals that make donuts as well. I digress, the driver was identified and when the parent found out the driver returned with a rake and did a nice job raking the parking lot. We need more parents that hold their offspring responsible. 

            • A driver was found to have cannabis in the vehicle and received a $360 fine. They were a new driver and tested positive for cannabis and received a 60-day driving prohibition and a 30-day vehicle seizure.

            • It appears some youth from one town have issues with some other youth in another town and have been driving around looking for the other youth. This seems so, well, teenage hormones are involved.

            • One youth was chased by several other youth and ran onto the complainants lawn and they called the police. No charges, but one was warned they could have been charged with breaching their release conditions.

            • A youth was arrested and lodged briefly. Social Services was involved being it is more of a "parenting issue" rather than a Criminal Code issue.

            • One individual failed to stop at a stop sign and not only did they get a $230 ticket, they also received a 72-hour suspension due to alcohol use.

            • Another traffic stop resulted in a charge under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and a $360 ticket for cannabis in the vehicle.

            • Members wrote 12 tickets and 34 warnings over the last week.

            • Now if you say you forgot to put your seatbelt on, you are likely being dishonest to yourself and to the police officer. If you always put it on it is a habit and just happens. Do you think I would believe you forgot to put your pants on?

            • Tickets were issued for cannabis in a vehicle - $360, liquor in a vehicle - $360, no insurance $580, fail to stop at stop sign -$230, fail to wear seatbelt - $175, drive while suspended (court) exceed 60 km/hour when passing an emergency vehicle - $318 and most expensive speeding ticket was for $208.

            • Warnings were issued for no insurance, fail to stop at stop sign, inadequate mudflaps, obstructed licence plate, fail to obey parking control sign, insecure cargo, fail to produce drivers licence and speeding

            • Inspection tickets were issued for calibrate speedometer, inadequate headlamps, inadequate tail lights, inadequate licence plate lights, inadequate day time running lights, and rectify engine light being on and inadequate windshield.
