Sept. 30: Police Update

In Vanderhoof's RCMP detachment last week: tire theft, drunk driving enforcement up

Tire theft

A set of tires were stolen from a vehicle in Vanderhoof’s Ford dealership on Sept. 21 night.

With 20-inch rims, the Scorpion tires would require $4,400 to replace.

No suspects or witnesses has been located so far – the RCMP advised individuals with information to contact the local detachment or report through Crime Stoppers.

 

Drunk driving enforcement up

Having pulled 10 criminally impaired drivers off the road this year, Vanderhoof’s Constable Justine Ramsay will be joining the RCMP’s 2015 Alexa’s Team, which recognizes police officers across B.C. for their commitment to fight drinking and driving in the province.

The program, created in 2009, is a partnership between the Middelaer family, BCAA Road Safety Foundation and ICBC — in honour of four-year-old Alexa Middelaer who was killed by an alcohol-impaired driver in Delta in 2008.

So far this year, Vanderhoof’s police officers have already doubled the number of immediate roadside prohibitions issued to impaired drivers in 2014.
