The Williams Lake RCMP were dispatched to a hit and run on Teal Place on April 6.
A complainant stated that at approximately 1:30 a.m. a vehicle struck his fence, destroying a fence post and knocking over the mailbox for the cul-de-sac.
Portions of the offending vehicle were recovered and determined to be from a Toyota, while further investigation revealed that a darker silver coloured van or SUV was seen in the area and may have been associated with the incident.
Later that day the Williams Lake fire department called RCMP to attend a vehicle arson at a residence on Country Club Blvd. at 9:26 p.m.
It is suspected that a 1998 Ford Windstar, parked outside of the residence, was lit on fire by an unknown person(s).
When the fire department arrived, the vehicle was completely engulfed in flames. Crews extinguished the fire. No one was injured.
RCMP say the incident seemed suspicious because the vehicle had not been driven for a period of time. The driver’s door was open when the fire was started.
A pickup truck parked beside the van sustained minor cosmetic damage. The incident is still under investigation by Police.
RCMP responded to report via cell phone on April 7 at 1:59 p.m. from a hiker stating that she was lost in the bush near the Blue Lake Campground on the Smokey Mountain Forest Service Road.
Police responded, located the hiker who was uninjured, and transported her to her vehicle.
Although the police dog was called out to assist, the dog was not required as the hiker was located.
Williams Lake RCMP described the weekend as quiet, with only 45 calls for service.
