Chase RCMP are focussing on road safety, as fall turns to winter and the days are getting shorter.

On Nov. 4, Chase RCMP conducted a traffic check stop on Shuswap-Chase Creek Road. Approximately 30 vehicles were checked, which resulted in one driver being issued a driving prohibition and having their vehicle impounded.

As the Christmas party season approaches, police advise the public that officers will be checking for impaired drivers. Be safe by ensuring you have a designated driver before going out to celebrate.

Impaired driver

On Nov. 5 at 12:30 a.m., Chase RCMP conducted a traffic stop on Shaw Street near Hillside Avenue.

The male driver displayed symptoms of impairment and, after an investigation, was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and his vehicle was impounded.

Deer, bear killed

On Nov. 3 about 8:50 p.m., Chase RCMP were dispatched to a traffic hazard complaint on Highway #1, near Squilax-Turtle Valley Road.

A deer carcass and a black bear carcass were found in the middle of the highway.  The road maintenance contractor removed the carcasses, and no collisions were reported to police.

With the shorter daylight hours this time of year, the RCMP reminds drivers to watch for wildlife attempting to cross highways and rural roads.

Mystery crash

On Nov. 2 about 10 p.m., Chase RCMP responded to a single-vehicle collision at the intersection of View Road and Squilax-Anglemont Road in Lee Creek. A blue Ford Focus was located in the ditch, the alarm was sounding and the airbags had been deployed. However, no one was in the vehicle.  The vehicle had a misused validation tag on the licence plate, and the investigation is continuing.

Generator stolen

On Oct. 28, Chase RCMP received a report of a break-in to a cabin in Anglemont.

A Yamaha 4200 ISE generator, worth about $4,000, was taken. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Chase Detachment at 250-679-3221 or Crimestoppers.
