Alcohol, theft and a bear: QC RCMP

  • Feb. 3, 2014 5:00 p.m.

Queen Charlotte RCMP responded to a variety of calls during the past week, says Sgt. Scott Hromadnik. On Jan. 29, RCMP responded to a domestic dispute in Sandspit. When police arrived, they found that alcohol was a factor in the dispute and that there had been no violence. The complainant agreed to leave the residence until her husband was sober, Sgt. Hromadnik said. On Jan. 31, RCMP responded to a complaint about a noisy party off First Avenue in Queen Charlotte. As police arrived, they saw a group of teens leaving the residence. They spoke to the owner of the house and no further issues were reported. On Feb. 1, RCMP received a report that an intoxicated man was hitchhiking along Highway 16 near Skidegate and was in danger of being hit by vehicles. Police located the man and arrested him for being intoxicated in public, Sgt. Hromadnik said. He was brought back to stay in the cells until he was sober. On Feb. 3, RCMP received a report that a quad ramp had been stolen from the back of a truck. The truck had been parked at the “old dump” on the Queen Charlotte Main Road. The ramp is a three-piece fold-out model with chains at the top. The top portion of the ramp has torn rubber and the hinges are slightly bent. If you have any information about this theft, please contact the RCMP at 250-559-4421. Police have been receiving calls about a bear in the neighbourhood of Mountain View Way in Skidegate, says Sgt. Hromadnik. The animal is a large black bear that has been getting into people’s garbage. RCMP remind the public to make sure garbage is stored in appropriate containers and secured so that it doesn’t tempt wildlife.
