Man arrested after urinating in public

The 100 Mile House RCMP responded to a suspicious vehicle spotted at the Interlakes Market in Sheridan Lake, British Columbia on Nov. 5, at approximately 3:54 p.m. The report claimed an elderly woman had been seen driving up to that location with no rubber tire on the front of the vehicle.

Suspicious clown spotted in 108 Mile Ranch, five days after Halloween

On Nov. 5., around 8:40 p.m., the 100 Mile House RCMP responded to a person dressed as a clown along Lily Pad Lake Road in the 108 Mile Ranch area.

The investigation is concluded, but officers would like to remind the public that Halloween is over.
