For the Townsman
An assault on Saturday afternoon, June 6, led to the arrest of several persons and the recovery of a stolen vehicle.
According to an RCMP press release, at 3:38 pm police were called to an assault on Ross Street in Kimberley — those involved had left prior to police attendance.
Less than 30 minutes later an officer saw the vehicle on Warren Avenue — he turned around and activated his emergency equipment. The vehicle turned off and appeared to be evading police as it made several turns until it reached a dead end.
Once the officer had the subjects in custody, he learned the driver was prohibited from driving and the vehicle was stolen out of Beaumont Alberta. In the trunk police found several weapons including six knives, a machete, and two baseball bats
One female is still in custody and was to appear on Cranbrook court tMonday on charges of Possession of Stolen Property and Assault. Two other males were released on a Recognizance with $500 bail for court in July. All three subjects have no fixed address but are believed to have been from Alberta and have connections to Cranbrook and area.
