RCMP Report: Insecure load on stolen truck

Last week a keen-eyed officer from Clearwater RCMP ran a license plate check on a suspicious looking vehicle.

Why was it suspicious? It had an incredibly large load on it, making it look somewhat like the truck used on the set of the Beverly Hillbillies movie.

The vehicle’s plate came back as stolen. The officer pulled the vehicle over and arrested the two drivers for possession of stolen property.

The vehicle was seized as evidence and the two occupants taken to the detachment where the driver was given a court date.

Also found in the door cubby of the vehicle was a realistic looking air gun.

Fraud alert

Once again, Clearwater RCMP remind all persons that, under no circumstances, should you send money to people across the world in return for future riches.

At no time should you give your computer password or any other personal information to someone claiming to be phoning from Microsoft.

Finally, do not give any credit card information to someone pretending to be phoning from BC Hydro regarding unpaid bills.

These are only some of the frauds circling around right now. Remember, think before you act.

Breach of peace

Police arrested a young adult male the other week for becoming uncontrollably drunk and hostile with his girlfriend and her family.

The male began calling everyone names and throwing things around the house.

The RCMP showed up and dealt with the male – arresting him and taking him away from the house for the night.
