Local RCMP deal with vandalism, passed-out woman, lost man

  • Nov. 6, 2014 2:00 p.m.

100 Mile RCMP responded to 58 complaints and calls for service during the past week.

Over the Halloween weekend many events and parties were held. The ghosts and ghouls (more actually Elsa’s from Frozen and a wide variety of Avengers) were out in force in 100 Mile House, earning their sugary keep for dressing up.

Overall, Halloween this year was a success from a policing stand point. No major crimes of note occurred on Halloween night, a slight increase in alcohol, mischief and noise investigations occurred, but nothing of serious consequence.

Clean check-up

On Nov. 1, RCMP conducted a vehicle check stop near the 100 Mile House Arena for public safety.

Checks were done on numerous vehicles and no impaired drivers were identified leaving the area.

Vehicles vandalized

Around 1:50 p.m. on Nov. 1, a couple of vehicles in the Save-On-Foods parking lot were damaged by being keyed.

Police are currently investigating the matter.

Female passed out

On Oct. 31, RCMP responded to the Dollar Tree for a report of a female passed out on the ground.

Members attended and located the female who was unable to stand or communicate properly on her own. Emergency Health Services was contacted and assisted RCMP in getting the female medical aid at the 100 Mile District General Hospital. She was brought back to a lucid state by medical staff.

Lost man found

On Oct. 31, RCMP and the South Cariboo Search and Rescue (SAR) received reports of a male who got lost after dark in the woods around Jim Creek.

Overnight the man’s employer was able to be in radio contact with him to ensure his well-being until daytime hours when SAR could arrange for a search. In the early morning hours, the male was located prior to the formal search beginning and was no worse for wear.
