Illegal cutting of firewood

Three local residents were investigated for illegally cutting down firewood in the District of Clearwater.

If any further problems with these individuals arise, charges will be forwarded.


Attempted theft in Blue River

A male and a female attended a business in Blue River late in the night in an attempt to steal snowmobiles.

The suspects were chased off by the owner but not before photographs were obtained and some evidence left behind.

The suspects (not locals to our area) are known to police and are believed to have been involved in multiple break and enters in Clearwater, Avola and Blue River recently.

The suspects are currently believed to be hiding out in Alberta. The investigation continues.


Impaired driver crashes borrowed vehicle

The RCMP investigated a collision on Highway 5 near the Clearwater Bridge.

The intoxicated male driver, known well to police, had crashed a vehicle that he had borrowed from a friend.

The driver failed to advise his friend that he did not have a valid driver’s license.

The driver was driving too fast for road conditions, lost control of the vehicle, drove over a concrete median and two road signs and came to a stop when he crashed into a snow bank.

The driver was charged under the Motor Vehicle Act for numerous violations.
