Trail RCMP Report Covers Theft, Impaired Driving and Phone Scam


One highlight from Trail RCMP's latest weekly report saw a 43-year old Christina Lake man investigated for impairment last Friday, October 1st.

The driver and two passengers had displayed signs of being under the influence of a drug and a subsequent search located an illicit substance believed to be Methamphetamine, a bullet, two knives plus an illegally mounted light bar.

Later that day an officer was called by a mother-in-distress after accidentally locking herself out of her vehicle and her young child inside, before a locksmith saved the day.

Police also caught word that Friday morning that a number of items were stolen from a Montrose construction site in the 900-block of 8th Street, including a toilet, bathroom sink, kitchen sink, kitchen faucet and light fixtures worth $1300 total.

RCMP also reminds residents to lock their vehicles following at least five reports of items stolen or nearly stolen from unlocked vehicles.

Lastly we have another fraud alert, this time regarding a telephone scam last weekend that appeared to have come from a local Trail business. Police are reminding residents not to provide personal or financial details over the phone and that today's scammers can display local phone numbers, so it's good to hang up and contact the businesses through a verified number to confirm whatever inquiry.
