RCMP Report: Revenue Canada scams

The Clearwater area has been receiving numerous unsolicited calls from unknown persons claiming to be from Revenue Canada

The Clearwater area has been receiving numerous unsolicited calls from unknown persons claiming to be from Revenue Canada and that attempt to scare those called into sending money to prevent being arrested.

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from any government organization, hang up. If you are worried about the legitimacy of the call, look up the number of that organization and call it directly. Always be skeptical of an unsolicited call.

Stolen tires and cigarettes

On June 2, there was a break-in at Aspen Auto on Glen Road. A window was broken to gain access to the shop.

The thieves then stole several sets of tires from the front of the shop. The break-in occurred just after 1 a.m.

At 3:30 a.m., there was another break-in, this time at the Petro Canada station in Blue River.

A significant amount of cigarettes was taken from the store. Video surveillance showed what appeared to be a dark-coloured, single-cab, pickup truck, which possibly had something in the bed of the truck.

Police ask that anyone who may have information regarding either of these break-ins to contact the Clearwater RCMP.

Neighbours help find three runaways

On June 3, three girls from Raft River Elementary School decided to run off from school.

Police and parents were notified and the girls were located safe and sound a short while later with the help of local residents.

Without the help, the incident could have turned out very differently. Thank you to all those who helped bring this to a safe conclusion.
