RCMP Report: Overdue traveler

A female complainant contacted Clearwater RCMP recently to report that her husband, who was traveling to Grand Prairie, had not arrived

A female complainant contacted Clearwater RCMP recently to report that her husband, who was traveling to Grand Prairie, had not arrived there by the time he should have.

Police advised the complainant that there was a road closure near Valemount due to a serious traffic incident. The road had been closed for approximately four hours.

Soon afterwards the female received a text from her husband advising that he was stuck in road closures and all was fine.

RCMP remind motorists to keep in touch with their families while traveling, keep your vehicles fuelled up in case of travel delays and carry an emergency kit with you in case you are in or come upon a motor vehicle incident.

Breaching probation

A local resident who has been banned from Clearwater failed to leave town as set out in his probation conditions.

The male was arrested and transported to Kamloops where he faces two new charges for breaching probation. The male currently has a condition to stay out of Clearwater and will be residing in a different town.

Animal and neighbor complaints

RCMP have again received multiple calls regarding dog complaints in Clearwater and Vavenby.

Please have consideration for your neighbors and other members of the public when it comes to your personal pets. It is your responsibility to keep your animals on your property or on a lease when they are out in public. Failure to do so could lead to civil action taken against you and future court dates.

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.” Benjamin Franklin

Vandalism and stolen diesel

RCMP were advised of some vandalism and a theft of diesel from Argo Road Maintenance over the past few weeks.

If you have any information about this report, please contact Clearwater RCMP.
