Police files from the Columbia Valley RCMP Detachment.

June 14

At 7 a.m., the Columbia Valley detachment received a complaint of two stolen bikes from the 7300 block of Kootenay Park Drive. A white and black Kona and brown Rocky Mountain bike were stolen.

The detachment received a complaint of a theft of a Husqvarna chainsaw model 343 with a steel cover. This theft occurred at a construction site in the 1900 block of Swansea Road in Windermere.

As a result of a report of an intoxicated male on Highway 93/95 just north of Invermere, a 24-year-old male was arrested, held overnight and released in the morning with a ticket for being drunk in public.

The detachment received a complaint of an ongoing history of domestic assault with a 25-year-old female as the victim.  As a result of information obtained, a 28-year-old male from Invermere was arrested and charged with assault as well as threats. The male will appear in Invermere provincial court in September.

As a result of an ongoing investigation, a search warrant was executed at 7330 Copper Horn Drive in the Village of Radium Hot Springs under the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act at 10:30 p.m. The residence is occupied by persons known to the police.

The result of the search resulted in the seizure of heroin, cocaine and a sum of money along with evidence to indicate charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking. A 39-year-old female and a 38-year-old male were arrested and held in custody for a June 20 bail hearing conducted at the Invermere court house.

The female was charged with the offence and at present time Crown advises that no charges against the male be made until further information is provided.

June 17

At 10:05 p.m., a 63-year-old male attended to an apartment unit in the 4800 block of Stanley Street and attempted to use a key to enter his son-in-law’s apartment. The male was advised that the key and lock were giving the son-in-law problems and if this were to happen, to simply pry open the deadlock which would cause minor damage but could be fixed. The male experienced problems and broke open the deadlock only to discover he was in the wrong building and the wrong apartment, which was fortunately empty. The male did the right thing and reported the damage to management and the police, and arranged to pay for the damage. The male went to the next building, right apartment and the key worked fine.

June 18

At 12:30 a.m., a vehicle was checked on the highway near Invermere and the 27-year-old driver from Prince George displayed signs of being impaired. The male was read an ASD demand which the male refused to take. The male’s driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days and the 2004 Dodge pickup was impounded for 30 days.
