Oct. 21: Police Update

Weekly police update: child bike theft, parish break and enter, and new corporal

Cpl. Cameron Fergusson

Child bike theft

At 4:00 a.m. on Oct. 13, a man and a woman, intoxicated, were seen going up Kenney Dam hill with a new child’s bike that was obviously stolen, given the bike’s unique look, the RCMP said.

Now arrested, the individuals had breached drinking conditions previously imposed by court as well.

The stolen bike is awaiting its owner at the Vanderhoof detachment.

 

Parish break and enter

The St. Joseph’s Parish Centre was broken into and vandalized overnight on Oct. 10, as reported to the RCMP the following morning.

Along with numerous items broken and fire extinguishers set off, the police are processing forensic evidence that was found on scene, as well as following different leads.

The RCMP advised individuals with information to contact the local detachment or report through Crime Stoppers.

 

There’s a new cop in town

Cpl. Cameron Fergusson has started his first day with Vanderhoof’s General Duty unit on Oct. 13.

With his Vanderhoof-born wife and two school-aged children, Fergusson had previously served in Smithers, Tahsis, and most recently in Campbell River on Vancouver Island.

At his fourth detachment, Fergusson said he prefers a smaller community, though he has spent his formative years in Kamloops.

He added that he also travelled around the province with the RCMP when he was younger — his father, now retired, was a former member.
