Files reported to the Vanderhoof RCMP between July 21 -29.

 

On July 21 a sex assault was reported in town. Both the accused and the victim were under 18. The male accused was arrested and later released with a court date.

The RCMP are receiving numerous complaints about thefts from mainly unlocked vehicles. The RCMP would like to remind people to lock their vehicles and to not leave valuables inside when the vehicle is unattended.

Police are also receiving a high number of traffic complaints about dangerous driving behavior. The police need to be called as soon as possible with the best location and vehicle description possible to respond to such complaints.

Last week the RCMP responded to a call of a commercial vehicle driving dangerously. A person called in and told RCMP that the vehicle nearly had a head on collision with another vehicle near Sob Lake Road. RCMP responded and the vehicle was located. The driver was found to have alcohol in his system and was given a 10-hour service ban, a $600 fine and  the vehicle was towed.

Police are receiving an increased number of drunk in public complaints as the weather heats up.

On July 27, RCMP received a complaint that two sea-doos had been stolen from a residence on Omineca Street West. The two sea-doos were on a trailer which was also stolen. One sea-doo was a yellow and white Polaris and the other was a blue and white Polaris. If anyone has any information about any of the above crimes or any other crime, please call the Vanderhoof RCMP on 250-567-2222.
