Submitted by Sgt. G.D.SIMPSON

Clearwater RCMP responded to 54 calls for service last week. A few of the more interesting are highlighted herein:

July 1

At 5:45 p.m. an Edmonton man called the RCMP to report a collision with a deer on Highway 5 at Mad River FSR near Vavenby, BC. No injuries were reported and the vehicle was still in driving condition, but the deer was still alive and needed to be put down.

The complainant, driver and registered owner of a Dodge Charger was southbound from Alberta to Surrey, B.C. when a deer jumped out from the southbound ditch, striking the passenger door side of the vehicle.

The damage is estimated to be less than $10,000. Photos were taken and a police file number given for insurance purposes. Police checks of the driver, passengers and the vehicle were negative. The local highway maintenance contractor was told the deer will need to be removed from highway.

The local conservation officer was advised of this incident as well.

Clearwater RCMP weekly police report

July 3

A local woman called RCMP and said that it looked like someone had tried to break into Forest House located in the 700 block of Clearwater Village Road. However, it did not appear that anything was taken. At 5:59 p.m. Clearwater RCMP attempted to call the complainant as they had been on another priority file and had not yet been able to attend. There was no answer so a message was left for her. On July 5 at 8:45 a.m., police attended to the address, but found the business was closed.

Police inspected the buildings on the property and did find a window in a shed at the rear of the property that was open a few inches but could go no further because of a 2X4 in the frame. Police did not observe any pry marks or any obvious damage. Police did not see any damage on any of the other buildings that would indicate a break and enter.

The investigation is ongoing at this time.

July 7

At 2:23 p.m., Clearwater RCMP received a report from a manager with Buy-Low foods who said that the previous day, July 6, a lone adult white man had entered the store and bought a single Red Bull energy drink for approximately $3. The suspect paid with a $50 bill and then proceeded to ask for various forms of change.

The suspect asked for different change multiple times before asking for the $50 bill back. The cashier was fairly new to the store and was distracted by the suspect’s requests, and a count of her till after the suspect left, found the till to be out by $34 dollars. Police obtained a prepared statement from the cashier and a copy of a receipt she had the suspect sign.

Video surveillance was obtained the following day. Police reviewed this video at the store, finding the suspect wore a hat and kept their head down the entire time they were in the store. Police are working on identifying the suspect via his ‘signature’ and video surveillance.
