RCMP Report: Drinking and driving

Clearwater RCMP were happy to report on Sunday morning that there had been no impaired driving charges forwarded in relation to grad

Clearwater RCMP were happy to report on Sunday morning that, even with significantly increased presence in the area over the graduation weekend, there had been no impaired driving charges forwarded in relation to the graduation celebrations.

The members of the detachment would like to commend the grads, not only on their graduation, but for being responsible about the celebrations.

Police would also like to thank all those persons who helped make that possible by offering rides and giving sober reminders to those who may have been tempted to drive after they’d been drinking.

Stolen trailer

On Wednesday, June 3, a small enclosed work/cargo trailer was stolen from where it had been left in the parking lot of Jim’s Market in Little Fort.

The trailer had been left there unattended and without a hitch lock, or other theft prevention device.

Thankfully, the trailer was empty, and was abandoned by the unknown thieves just north of Barriere where it was found by the owner a short time later.

Noise complaint

On June 5, Clearwater RCMP responded to a report of a loud house party near the Raft River School.

Police attended and located the party. The noise was brought down to more acceptable levels.

Looking for lost phone

On June 6, Clearwater RCMP took a report of a lost cellphone, an iPhone 5C with a blue case. The phone had been lost sometime over the previous evening.

The owner reported it in hopes that a good Samaritan in town had located the phone and would turn it in to police to return to the owner.
