Over the weekend the Williams Lake RCMP responded to approximately 65 calls for service ranging from traffic incidents to theft.

• On Sept 22 at 8:24 a.m. police responded to a complaint on Boundary Street that someone threw a rock through a Chrysler 300 rear window overnight. The rock was found inside the rear of vehicle. Police continue to investigate the incident.

• At 5:59 p.m. on Sept. 22 police responded to a single vehicle rollover that occurred on Likely Road near Beaver Valley Road.

Police attended and located the 2007 Chevy Cobalt unoccupied and on its roof in a ditch.

The driver was already out of the vehicle and had been picked up by a passerby and brought to the Cariboo Memorial Hospital for treatment. It appears the driver lost control and went off the roadway. Police confirmed with the hospital that the driver did not sustain any serious injury and had been discharged. The vehicle was not towed as it was not obstructing traffic.

• On Sept. 23 at 7:45 a.m. Williams Lake RCMP received a complaint from PD Security that two vehicles had their passenger side windows smashed at Oliver Street Bar and Grill.

The vehicles were a Mazda B4000 and a  Dodge Ram. Both vehicles were wet with dew and had their glove boxes rummaged through. It appeared that a piece of concrete (the size of a rock) was used to break the window. It is unknown if anything was stolen because the owners did not call in to report the damage or any subsequent theft. The matter is still under investigation by police.

• On Sept. 23,  at 10:37 p.m., police responded to a report of a male trying to smash the window out of a residence on Carson Drive.

The owner of the residence yelled at the perpetrator who then took out pepper spray and tried to discharge it at the owner of the residence.

Patrols of the area by police were unsuccessful in locating the perpetrator.

• At 1:24 a.m. on Sept. 24 police responded to a report of a theft on Third Avenue North.  Police attended and quickly located two young offender males in the alley behind a residence.

The boys were held by police for trespassing at night. It was determined that the youth had stolen $29.74 in change from an unlocked vehicle.

Both youth were under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and were later released to their parents without charge.
