RCMP Report: Mischief to high school

Police ask that anyone who may have knowledge of this incident to please come forward

On Thursday, Aug. 25 around 1 a.m., a Clearwater Secondary School staff member requested that RCMP go to the school as it may of been broken into.

Police attended and searched the school. No one was located inside and it did not appear that access was made into the school. There were no obvious signs of anything having been stolen.

A door knob to the shop door at the back of the school was damaged and two shop bay windows were busted off the shop bay doors.

There was some graffiti spray paint at the back of the school but it was unknown if it was new.

Police ask that anyone who may have knowledge of this incident to please come forward.

Mountain bikes taken

On Sept. 1 at 7 a.m. it was reported that three mountain bikes had been stolen from a rack on the back of a vehicle in the parking lot of a Clearwater tourist accommodation sometime between 11:30 p.m. and 7 a.m.

The bicycles are described as:

1) 2015 black Rocky Mountain trailhead 29M

2) red Giant 21-speed

3) black Opus Recon 24″

Value of the bikes was approximately $2,300. The vehicle had been parked on the east side of the lot of the Clearwater Lodge facing the entrance and the bikes were facing Highway 5. The bikes were locked onto the rack.

School is back

With the start of the new school year, police remind all drivers that the school zone speed limits are back in effect – 30 km/h in any marked school zone. Police will be making an extra effort to conduct speed enforcement in areas around schools.

Also, schoolbuses have those nice stop signs attached to them and flashing lights. Don’t pass a schoolbus if it’s got the flashing lights on or the stop sign out.


This includes going in the opposite direction. If you’ve ever looked, the stop sign says stop from both directions. Stop for school buses.
