Overnight on Nov. 15-16 an unknown person stole an ATV, specifically a 2012 Arctic Cat Mud Pro 700 quad, from where it had been left loaded on a small utility trailer in the parking lot of the owner’s residence.

The quad was registered and had an Alberta license plate on it, EBK22.

If anyone has any information regarding the stolen quad or trailer, please contact the Clearwater RCMP or Crimestoppers.


Overturned Semi

On Monday, Nov. 16, Clearwater RCMP were notified of a single vehicle collision just north of Avola on Highway 5. A southbound ‘super B’ tractor trailer unit hauling lumber had gone out of control, reportedly due to a northbound vehicle in the southbound lane.

The ‘super B’ went off the road to the right and over the bank into the ditch. No other vehicles were involved and the driver of the truck was not injured.


Another crashed semi

On Nov. 17, Clearwater RCMP responded to a report of an overturned semi truck-and-trailer on Highway 5 just north of Avola.

Police found the truck had gone off the road to the right side and ended up on its side in a swamp. The truck was leaking diesel fuel.

A local tow company attended and cleanup and recovery were beginning even as police arrived.

Police investigation found there were no signs the driver was impaired or driving recklessly. The road conditions at the time were poor and icy.


Suspicious vehicle

On Nov. 18 Clearwater RCMP received a report of a suspicious brown or red SUV that appeared to be lurking around the area of Fawn Road and Archibald Road in Clearwater.

Police responded and checked the area, finding that the vehicle’s tracks did not go onto any person’s private property and there were no footprints in the snow near a specific house where the vehicle appeared to be focused.

Police remind residents to keep an eye open for vehicles that do not belong in the area and/or are acting suspiciously. If at all possible if you see such a vehicle, attempt to determine the license plate number, as this allows police a way to follow-up if they are unable to locate the vehicle immediately.
