On Thursday, March 12, during a routine traffic stop, Clearwater RCMP pulled over a vehicle that turned out to have been reported stolen from Alberta. The vehicle was recovered and the occupants identified.

Fire goes out of control
On March 13, Clearwater RCMP were informed of a grass fire in the Little Fort area that had gotten out of control, requiring the fire department to attend.
With spring seemingly here early, the spring cleaning and burning of trimmings and such from yards is likely to increase.
If planning on lighting a fire or burning yard trimmings or the like, please take precautions to ensure that you are able to adequately control the fire and keep it contained.
Thief takes fuel from ferry
On March 14 a break-and-enter was reported at the Little Fort ferry.
It seems some unscrupulous character broke into a shed at the ferry dock and stole a five gallon jerrycan full of fuel.
The incident occurred sometime overnight between March 13/14.
If anyone witnessed anything, or knows anything about the theft, please contact Clearwater RCMP.
