Between Dec. 13 and 17, the RCMP responded to a series of incidents including fights at a high school, outside a library, and in a home.

Dec. 13:

• RCMP were called to what appeared to be a break and enter in progress, but discovered an intoxicated male was trying to contact his girlfriend. He was arrested for being intoxicated in public and lodged in a cell until sober.

Dec. 14:

• RCMP were advised of a theft at a local business, and while video surveillance identified a suspect, the investigation is ongoing.

• A group of individuals approached an RCMP officer on Oliver Street and advised that a male had stolen a box from the rear entrance of a local business.

Upon investigation the officer caught a male in possession of a DVD player system worth $900, arrested him and recommended theft charges.

• A pedestrian wearing dark clothing was struck by a vehicle while attempting to cross Western Avenue in a snow storm. He only received a minor injury, and was released from hospital after being treated.

• After receiving a call about three youths with a possible pellet gun attempting to shoot near a residence, police tracked the youths on foot for more than a kilometre. The RCMP didn’t locate the youths, and no damage or evidence surfaced.

The RCMP received a call of a sudden death. The coroner attended and after an investigation it was determined no foul play was suspected.

• A warrant has been issued for a male who breached the conditions of his release from custody on Dec. 5, 2011 by a justice of the peace for criminal harassment against his ex-girlfriend, where he was allowed no contact with her. Once out the male attempted to located her.

Dec. 15:

• A fight between two males at a high school has not warranted charges, but the principal will follow up with the parents of the students.

• A male was held in custody after being picked up at his residence on an outstanding arrest warrant.

Dec. 16:

• A driver was issued a violation ticket for speed relative to driving conditions after the driver’s car went off the Soda Creek Road and onto the railroad tracks. After attempting to drive back onto the road by driving on the tracks, the vehicle became stuck, and had to be towed.

• Two females began fighting outside the library in Williams Lake because of a dispute between their younger sisters, who were also at the scene, resulting in scratches and a bloody nose. RCMP attended and after it was determined neither fighter wanted to press charges, both were warned about causing a disturbance.

• There were reports of multiple accidents due to roads icing up when the temperature dropped.

• When a male was arrested on Donald Road for being intoxicated, RCMP discovered he had two unendorsed warrants out of Alexis Creek for impaired and failing to appear. He was arrested on both warrants.

• An adult daughter called the RCMP after a domestic dispute broke out in her home between a male and female who were drinking together. The male was arrested and lodged in cells to be released when sober.

• After police received a report from a man that after a verbal argument his wife and their two children had left home and not returned, officers located the woman and the children, discovering they were safe and sound.
