RCMP Report: Thief takes chainsaw

An unknown person entered a property in the Flats area of Clearwater and stole a Stihl chainsaw and a welding mask

Sometime overnight on Dec. 10 an unknown person entered a property in the Flats area of Clearwater and stole a Stihl chainsaw and a welding mask.

If you have any information regarding this theft, please contact the Clearwater RCMP.


Slippery road contributes to crash

On Dec. 13, a full-size pickup truck travelling north on the highway just south of Blue River went out of control, apparently due to ice, and went off the road, causing the vehicle to flip.

There was only one occupant, who was uninjured in the collision.

Due to the mild temperatures snow has been melting and refreezing regularly making road conditions difficult to predict and black ice more likely in many areas. Please use caution this holiday season.


Impaired driver in ditch

On Dec. 16, Clearwater police were called for a possibly impaired driver in the ditch on Highway 24.

Members responded and located the vehicle. The driver was uninjured but impaired by alcohol.

Police issued the driver a 90-day driving prohibition. The vehicle was recovered from the ditch and impounded for 30 days.


Police wish everyone a happy and safe holiday

Over this holiday season there are many occasions for celebrations and fun.

While celebrating and having all that fun, we would only ask that everyone please take care to ensure you have a safe ride to wherever you need to go.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas from everyone at the Clearwater RCMP.
