NEWS RELEASE · 9th September 2015
Kitimat RCMP
During the week of August 31st 2015 – September 6th 2015 the Kitimat RCMP responded to 69 calls for service, some of which are as follows:

On Monday August 31st the Kitimat RCMP received a complaint from a member of the public stating that they felt threatened by the actions taken by an individual. The complainant advised that the suspect made reference to a serious assault that recently occurred to another resident, and then made gestures that made them fear for their safety. The RCMP investigator felt that the threats were serious, and the suspect was located and arrested. The suspect was released on several conditions for a court date in Kitimat in November 2015.

On Monday August 31st the Kitimat RCMP received a complaint of an individual who had been loitering in a local business for an extended period of time, and the complainant felt they needed to be spoken to/checked up on. Members are familiar with this person, and know them not to have a fixed address. The person had since left the business. On Tuesday September 1st, another complaint with this same person was received, this time they had been asked to leave the residence of a former friend and would not. Direction was given to leave this complainant alone, and the suspect said they understood. Another complaint was received later on this same date, where the suspect had walked uninvited in to another former friend’s residence, and became belligerent when asked to leave. Based upon all of the recent actions and behaviors, it was determined that the suspect may have been suffering from a mental health crisis, and was transported to the Kitimat General Hospital for assessment.

On September 3rd 2015 a report was received of a prohibited driver who had driven themselves to the Kitimat courthouse to deal with legal matters. It was later determined that the suspect was not in the courthouse for their own matters, and it could not be determined if they had actually driven themselves. The suspect stated they had someone drive them, and was working on getting their license back.

On September 5th 2015 a report of an intoxicated person who had been ejected and banned from a local business but had returned again was received by the Kitimat RCMP. Through investigation it was learned that this person was breaching conditions out of both Alberta and BC. The suspect was arrested and held for court in Terrace BC to deal with charges.
