RCMP report

RCMP busy with assaults, intoxication, and vehicle accidents over the past week.

RCMP were called about an assault in progress on the Tachet Reserve at 4:30 a.m. March 16.

Sgt. Rose says RCMP arrived, got no response when they knocked and forced entry into the home, finding that the victim had fled and was being treated by ambulance.

He says RCMP arrested a male for assault with the weapon and brought him to the Smithers hospital for assessment, and while being assessed the male fled the hospital and has not been located.

The male is facing charges of assault with a weapon, Sgt. Rose said.

RCMP were called about a disturbance at the Hillcrest Apartments just after 1:30 a.m. March 16.

Sgt. Rose says a male was breaching the peace and would not calm down, and the other party in the apartment wanted him removed.

The male was arrested and lodged in cells until sober, Sgt. Rose said.

A vehicle hit the District of Houston gate at the end of Omineca Way at 8:20 p.m. March 16.

Sgt. Rose says the vehicle was gone when RCMP arrived but they got the licence plate number and found the vehicle at the Houston Curling Rink with front end damage.

Sgt. Rose says the gate was worth $1,500 to $2,000 and the case is still under investigation.

Charges are expected against the driver for failing to remain on scene, he said.

RCMP were called about an intoxicated male refusing to leaving the Houston Legion at 11 p.m. March 16.

Sgt. Rose says when RCMP arrived the male took the offered opportunity to leave, but reappeared at the Legion at 11:30 p.m.

The man was arrested and lodged in cells until sober, said Sgt. Rose.

An impaired driver at the A&W drive thru was called in just after 8 p.m. March 15.

RCMP stopped the driver on Highway 16 near 7-11 and demanded a roadside screen which the driver failed, Sgt. Rose said.

He says RCMP issued the driver a 90-day roadside prohibition and impounded the vehicle for 30 days.

Sgt. Rose says the vehicle passenger, a very intoxicated female, got out of the vehicle and stumbled into the ditch.

She was arrested for being drunk in a public place and lodged in cells until sober.

There was a three-vehicle collision on Hagman Crescent at 8:15 a.m. last week Monday.

Sgt. Rose says an east-bound vehicle hit a parked vehicle, and while the driver was trying to locate the owner of the parked vehicle, another vehicle hit the first one.

No one was injured but the first vehicle was significantly damaged, probably a write off, and the other two had minor damages from the crash, said Sgt. Rose.

He says both drivers were issued tickets for driving without due care and attention.

***

RCMP issued a warrant for the arrest of a male involved in an assault on the Tachet Reserve last week Monday.

Sgt. Rose says RCMP were called at 2:30 p.m., but were unable to locate the victim or suspect when they arrived.

The victim came into the Houston Police Office a few hours later and gave a statement and photos of the male, Sgt. Rose said, adding that they issued a warrant because they’ve been unable to locate the male.

***

RCMP were called last Wednesday at 3:15 p.m. about two people fighting on the second floor of the 2035 Sullivan Way apartments.

Sgt. Rose says RCMP found a male going in and out of the building, yelling, screaming and clearly drunk.

The male was arrested, lodged in cells until sober, and charged for being drunk in a public place.

After investigating into the original call, RCMP arrested a male for breaching conditions, and was held in custody until Smithers court last Friday, Sgt. Rose said.

He says RCMP do not know who caused the male his injuries.

***

RCMP were called about a drunk male causing trouble at the Houston arena.

Sgt. Rose says that when RCMP arrived, the male had left but was located nearby.

Based on his level of intoxication and the fact that he was with a responsible person who could look after him, Sgt. Rose says he was sent home and not arrested.

***

RCMP put down a significantly injured deer near Houston Forest Products on Morice River Road last week Tuesday at 10:15 a.m.

Sgt. Rose says there were no vehicles associated with having hit the deer and no one has come forward about the accident.
