Clearwater RCMP report that on Sunday, Nov. 13, several break-ins to fenced commercial compounds in the Clearwater area occurred. Numerous items, and vehicles were stolen.

Thanks to assistance and cooperation from all those involved and other local businesses and individuals, video surveillance was obtained from several locations.

The police investigation is ongoing and charges will be forwarded to Crown counsel.

The suspects are last known to still be at large but have been identified. They will have their day in court to answer for these charges.

 

Inappropriate video sent to child

On Nov. 16, Clearwater police received a report from a concerned parent regarding an interaction their child had over the Internet using a cellular phone.

The child had been playing a game and started messaging another player. The other player convinced the child to add them onto a separate phone application to continue chatting.

The other person then sent a graphic and inappropriate video to the child through the new application.

The investigation into this is ongoing. Parents are reminded to be aware of what applications their children are using on their phones, and to speak with their children regarding talking to strangers over the Internet.

 

Messiter strikes

On Nov. 19, police responded to a single vehicle collision on the north side of the Messiter summit south of Blue River.

A southbound tractor-trailer swerved in the fresh snow to avoid an oncoming vehicle encroaching into its lane. The driver attempted to bring the tractor-trailer back its lane of travel but over-corrected, causing the tractor to lose traction and slowly jack-knife. It then slid off the road on the left side into the ditch and against the embankment.

The driver was uninjured but the highway was limited to single-lane alternating traffic for a couple of hours while the vehicle was removed.

 

Marijuana and driving don’t mix

On Nov. 19, Clearwater police conducted a traffic stop on a local vehicle that resulted in a small amount of marijuana being seized for destruction.

A 24-hour driving suspension was issued to the driver and the vehicle was impounded for 24 hours.
