Clearwater RCMP report

Stolen vehicle used in break-in at computer store. Clearwater police are asking for information

Stolen vehicle used in break-in at computer store

Clearwater police are asking for information to help in two investigations.  Sometime overnight on May 1, a vehicle was stolen from an area along Park Drive.  The vehicle was a 2000 red Honda Civic hatchback. During the morning of May 2, the vehicle was found abandoned near the Clearwater River bridge. Evidence left at the scene suggests that the stolen vehicle was used during a break and enter to Clearwater Computers. If anyone has information about the driver of the vehicle during this time frame or knows anything about these incidents, please contact the police at 250-674-2237 or call crimestoppers. This incident is still under investigation.

Gang recruitment in Cleawater

The Clearwater detachment received information that youth gang recruitment may be occurring in Clearwater. Gang activities and violence continue to make headlines and rural communities are not immune as recruitment areas.  When it comes to youth gangs, the responsibility is shared between the police, schools and parents. Often, parents are the first line of defence and changes in behaviour are helpful indicators of gang involvement. For more help, the internet is a useful resource. The Health Canada Drug Strategy as well as Deal.org offer useful tips for parents and kids on recognizing behaviours and arming themselves with knowledge about drugs and gangs. If your son or daughter has been approached by a person you feel is a concern with respect to gang activity, please contact the police. Working together is the best response to safeguarding our communities.

Break-in at Blue River

Sometime during the early morning hours of May 3, the Petro Canada gas station in Blue River was broken into. The incident is under investigation and police are looking to the public for any tips that may be helpful.

Speedwatch

 

Speedy and inconsiderate drivers are everywhere! They are on the highways, in the backroads and also in our neighbourhoods. Often police presence is enough to curb the behaviour, but the police cannot be everywhere at once, especially with the increased summer traffic. The traffic services section of the Clearwater detachment offers a Speedwatch program made up of volunteers.  For more information on the program and how to get involved, please contact Cst. Michelle Hall at the Clearwater detachment at 250-674-2237.
