2011 February 10

As a result of numerous requests to keep the music and partying noise levels down including calls to police and failure to get results , a 21-year-old male from Canal Flats is to be charged with Mischief under the Criminal code. A mischief charge is usually thought of as breaking or destroying property however on the rare occasion the police have to rely on section 430 (1) (d) of the Criminal code which states: Everyone commits mischief who willfully obstructs, interrupts or interferes with any person in the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property. This section of the criminal code is the last step taken as we encourage people to work out their problems. If that doesn’t work the police will attempt to resolve the problem by attending and warning the person. When all these efforts fail, we will use this section and get the person before the courts. In order for this section to work we have to show all the efforts made by the person complaining and the action taken by the police to stop the problem from repeating itself. The police should not be the first level of attempting to resolve such problems. When the complainant and the police can properly document all steps taken then ignored, out comes 430 (1) (d).

A 22-year-old male previously arrested and charged with assault, resist arrest along with possession of a controlled substance was arrested for breaching conditions on an undertaking. The male was held in custody and brought before a Justice of the Peace. The male was released with further conditions.
