Police investigate multi-vehicle vandalism and more overnight

Williams Lake RCMP were kept busy investigating vandalism, a suspected impaired driver and a fight July 15-16.

Williams Lake RCMP were kept busy investigating vehicle vandalism, a single-vehicle incident where alcohol was suspected, as well as a fight downtown overnight Wednesday.

Staff Sgt. Del Byron said guests of the Coast Fraser Inn woke up Thursday morning to find their vehicles were vandalized in the hotel parking lot sometime overnight.

Multi vehicles were apparently impacted by the crime and police are investigating.

At 10:07 p.m. Wednesday evening, police received a report that a Honda Civic left the road and hit a tree, with the driver then running from the scene.

Byron said an impaired driving investigation is underway in the case. The incident happened on Bluff View Road at the end of South Lakeside Drive.

And lastly, at 1:40 a.m., outside the business Diamonds and Dust located at 84 Oliver Street, police were called to the scene of an altercation where a patron was found lying on the sidewalk with facial injuries.

Further investigation determined the victim had taken part in a consensual fight, Byron said.
