Over the past few weeks, Clearwater RCMP have become very familiar with a subject who is now resting comfortably in jail. The subject has attended Clearwater and area several times over the past few years, but this past week he created extra work for police.
By the time everything was done, this subject had nine charges. Three were for damaging pay phones (usually after he dials 911), one for theft of an ATV, one for smashing a window and four for breaching the conditions of his probation.
Although there have been minor incidents, Friday, June 10 was the night he got out of hand in Blue River. Several of the charges stem from when he was up there. On Saturday police attended Blue River with the intent on putting an end to this. With the help of local residents the subject was located and arrested. He was held in custody for court on Monday and sentenced Wednesday to 55 days in jail. Police will now have more time for other issues.
How early do you start drinking?
Last week a male was stopped for speeding at 5:50 a.m. While dealing with the driver, the officer noted signs of alcohol consumption. A breath sample was obtained, and it was a “Fail.” This means the driver was more than 100 mgs.
He was processed under the new IRP (immediate roadside prohibition) and is now prohibited from driving for 90 days. His vehicle was impounded for 30 days. In addition to the IRP and speeding ticket, he will attend court for driving while prohibited.
Yes, the driver did not possess a license. Way to draw attention to yourself!
