100 Mile House RCMP responded to 74 complaints and calls for service during the past week. Below are highlights of the week’s calls.

Flower theft

On March 30, RCMP was called to a report of theft at Save-On-Foods.

A wagon and several flowers had been taken by two males. Soon after, RCMP located the men, aged 27 and 24, both from 100 Mile House.

The men were arrested for theft and lodged in cells. They were both released the following day for court at a later date.

Rollover MVI

At 9 a.m. on March 29, RCMP were called to a single-vehicle incident on the 6000 block of

Fawn Creek Road.

A 24-year-old 100 Mile House man was rounding a corner and lost control causing the vehicle to roll several times.

The driver was ejected from the vehicle and suffered what are believed to be very serious injuries. He was air lifted to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops from the scene by a helicopter.

He was the only occupant of the vehicle and it is believed the actual motor vehicle incident (MVI) occurred several hours before the actual report.

A collision analyst from Prince George attended the scene to conduct an in-depth scene investigation and the road was closed in both directions for approximately eight hours.

Speed is believed to be a factor in the MVI. It is believed the male was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the incident.

A subwoofer and amplifier were stolen as well as a small amount of money. It is believed to have occurred the night previous.
