Intoxication prompts safety worry

  • Sep. 9, 2013 6:00 a.m.

Queen Charlotte RCMP responded to 12 calls for service during the week of Sept. 2 to 9, says Cpl. Ron Masch. The calls included the following: On Sept. 2 at 11 pm, police were called to locate two people who had wandered off into the forest behind Queen Charlotte. Both were believed to be intoxicated and the caller was worried about their safety. Police searched the area and found the pair, and they were brought back into town. No further action was taken, Cpl. Masch said. On the evening of Sept. 5, police received a call from the Coast Guard that they were responding to a call about a man who had jumped overboard from a fishing vessel in the Narrows. Police later met the Coast Guard and took custody of the rescued man, who was intoxicated. It appears the man got into a disagreement with another crew member and did not wish to stay on the vessel any longer, so he jumped into the water, Cpl. Masch said. On Sept. 6, a member of the public turned over a small quantity of cocaine to the Queen Charlotte RCMP detachment. It had been found outside in the Skidegate area. On Sept. 6, police received a complaint from a male cyclist that he had been run off the road by a pickup truck, possibly a GMC Sierra, light brown or silver-grey in colour, with a canopy. No licence plate was obtained. The man was not injured when he fell off his bike. The suspect vehicle was not located.
