On Monday October 5th a vehicle was observed turning too sharply and striking a curb in Kitimat.

On Wednesday October 7th a vehicle was checked for speeding and found to be traveling well in excess of the speed limit on the Kitamaat village Rd. A vehicle stop was initiated and it was determined that the driver did not hold a valid BC drivers licence. The vehicle was impounded and several traffic violation offences were issued.
On Wednesday October 7th a vehicle stop initiated by a member observing a traffic violation resulted in a 24hour prohibition from driving as the driver was found to be under the influence of drugs. During the investigation a small amount of drugs were seized also.
On Friday October 9th a member of the public attended the Kitimat RCMP Detachment with a compressor that they had located. Should this compressor belong to you, please contact the Kitimat RCMP Detachment, identify the make/model/description, and it can be returned to its rightful owner.
