During the week of September 7th 2015 – September 13th 2015 the Kitimat RCMP responded to 63 calls for service, some of which are as follows:
On Tuesday September 8th 2015 a local resident attended the Kitimat RCMP Detachment to give a wallet that they had found to the on duty members. The wallet had a full complement of identification and a small amount of money in it. The on duty members tracked down the owner of the wallet and delivered it personally to them at their residence. They were very happy and surprised at the outcome.
On Wednesday September 9th an out of town resident contacted the Kitimat RCMP Detachment fearing that their significant other was causing a disturbance in their shared residence, and was possibly destroying shared property. Members arrived on scene and determined that this was not the case. The initial complainant became apologetic for jumping to such conclusions as the entire situation was fabricated, and then involving the police.
On Thursday September 10th the Kitimat RCMP Detachment conducted a partnering investigation with the local BC Ambulance regarding a person who had been found in an intoxicated state. The Kitimat RCMP Detachment members arrived and recognized the subject. The paramedics on scene released care to the RCMP, knowing that the person was not in need of medical care. The members drove the suspect to a residence where a sober person was able to care for them.
On Saturday September 12th a complaint was received from a landlord regarding the payment of rent from an intermediary hired on as a property manager. The complainant was advised that this was more of a civil matter and not a criminal one based on the fact that a financial transaction was occurring. The complainant was directed to speak with the landlord-tenancy branch, as this falls under their mandate more than a police matter.
On Saturday September 12th 2015 a member patrolling Kitimat noticed a vehicle not come to a complete stop at a stop sign, and initiated traffic stop. Through investigation it was learned that the Learner Class driver admitted to recently consuming marijuana, and was in possession of a medium sized amount. The driver was issued a 24 hour prohibition from driving, and a violation ticket for the initial infraction. The vehicle was towed, and the drugs were seized for destruction.
