100 Mile House RCMP responded to 56 complaints and calls for service during the past week. Some highlights are attached.
On Feb. 13, investigators from Cariboo-Chilcotin Traffic Services observed a vehicle with an incorrect licence plate on Highway 976 near 108 Mile House.
The vehicle was pulled over and the female driver was determined to be unlicensed.
Further inquiries determined that the male passenger was on a no-contact condition with the driver. The male was arrested for breaching his release conditions and the female driver was arrested for obstruction.
Both were released on a promise to appear with a court date of May 10 in 100 Mile House.
On Feb. 12, investigators from Cariboo-Chilcotin Traffic Services observed a vehicle being operated in an erratic manner in the parking lot of the Cariboo Mall.
The vehicle was pulled over in the parking lot, and the male driver displayed symptoms of liquor consumption.
An approved screening device was administered at the scene and the result was a “fail.” The offer of a second test was declined.
The driver met the established criteria and was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition (IRP). His vehicle was towed and impounded for 30 days.
During the past week, there were two, three-day IRPs issued by Cariboo-Chilcotin Traffic Services to drivers who had consumed liquor and had blown a “warn” on an approved screening device.
There were also roadside checks conducted over the Valentine’s Day weekend.
