At 12:15 p.m., the Columbia Valley detachment attended to a two-vehicle accident on Radium Blvd. A 2012 Kenworth tractor and trailer driven by a 29-year-old male from Saskatchewan was backing out of an area and the trailer made contact with a Ford F250, causing damage to it. The Ford was not parked on the street. The driver or owner of the Ford was not in the area and was to be located.
The Columbia Valley detachment received a complaint of harassment involving an ongoing issue between a group of adults that seemed to have issues. A 48-year-old male was observed giving another male the finger, then later lingered around the residence of the other male. Although no threats were made in this incident, the complaints of harassment will be investigated and, if applicable, charges may be recommended to the Crown for charge approval.
Columbia Valley Detachment members were called to a complaint in regards to a number of youths on the roof of the concession stand in Edgewater. The building is believed to be unstable and the fear was that the youths may fall. Patrols were made and no youths were observed.
At 9:36 p.m., the Columbia Valley detachment received a complaint of hit and run in the 1300 block of 13th Ave. A ‘74 Dodge Charger received damage to its left side. The tire marks left behind would suggest a green pickup truck rounded the corner at 13th Ave., lost control and struck the Charger. Damage to the suspect vehicle would be to the right front headlight and fender. Anyone with information is requested to contact the detachment.
At 11:25 p.m., Columbia Valley detachment members were called to a disturbance in the 4800 block of Riverview Drive in Edgewater in regards to a male causing a disturbance in a residence and refusing to leave the house. The male had departed by the time the police arrived.
At 5:45 p.m., Columbia Valley detachment members were called to a domestic dispute in the 1400 block of 13th Ave. A 38-year-old male was assaulted and cut in the head when an object was thrown at him. The investigation resulted in the arrest of a 36-year-old female charged with assault with a weapon. The female was released with a court date of August 7.
At 11 p.m., Columbia Valley detachment members were called to a disturbance involving an adult male and female in the 1300 block of 11th Ave. in Invermere. An investigation revealed no assault other than a verbal argument had taken place. Both parties went their separate ways to avoid any escalation.
Invermere Citizens on Patrol: The detachment is wishing to get this program back on its feet. At present time, we only have three active citizens in Invermere and we need more people involved. The volunteers are our eyes and ears in the community. Training is done before anyone hits the street to go over the rules and expectations. Those interested please give me a call at the detachment at 250-342-9292. If we can get eight more people involved, we will arrange an information session at the sub office, Tim Hortons.
Crossing the line: To the fellow I failed to yield to in the Sobeys parking lot, I was informed by a fellow member that there is a stop line I should have seen. I went back and sure enough, there it was. So, even though you are not my wife, I will revert to my husband mantra, “You are right, I’m wrong, sorry.”
