RCMP Report: Cabin squatter arrested

Clearwater RCMP closed the case this week on a prolific break and enter artist

Clearwater RCMP closed the case this week on a prolific break and enter artist. One male was arrested and charged for repeatedly breaking into cabins in the park and spending the night in them.

The male never stole anything. However; he continually damaged property in the cabins he stayed at.

Holiday spirit(s)

If you’re going to be partaking in the consumption of spirits, wine, beer or any other form of alcohol this year, make sure to plan a safe ride home.

This is especially relevant this time of year – during the holiday season.

Within the last two weeks the Clearwater RCMP have charged five people with driving while being impaired. Road checks will in abundance all over Clearwater.

Winter road conditions

It looks like the snow might finally be here to stay, and obviously now is the time to look out for winter road conditions when traveling.Clearwater RCMP dealt with seven vehicle collisions in the last eight days.

It should be known that the road is always a few degrees cooler than the air. That means that even if the air is foggy or rainy, it could still be icy on the road.

This is also a reminder that winter tires should now be on your vehicle.

Reflection safety

We’re getting into the shortest days of the year – the shortest, darkest, coldest, least visible days. The sun sets at 4 p.m. but people are still out and about.

We here at the Clearwater RCMP urge everyone walking the streets to take responsibility for their own safety and wear bright colored clothes.

It is extremely hard to see pedestrians on the side of the street wearing grey or black clothing on an overcast foggy dark night.
