On Sept. 14, a Chase resident reported that sometime over the Sept. 12 weekend, someone went into his unlocked garage and stole a Toro leaf blower, red and black in colour, valued at $250.  There were no witnesses. Police request anyone with knowledge of this crime to call Chase RCMP at 250-679-3221 or Crimestoppers.

Bike swiped

On Sept. 13, a tourist reported to that he had parked his RV at the Safety Mart parking lot overnight, and awoke to find his mountain bike had been stolen from outside the vehicle.

The bicycle is a 14-speed, full suspension  Santana Cruise, grey-green in colour with a tan leather pouch on the handlebars. The bike is valued at about $4,000. There were no witnesses and police request anyone with knowledge of this crime to call Chase RCMP at 250-679-3221 or Crimestoppers.

Noisy party

On Sept. 15, Chase RCMP received a noise complaint from a multi-unit residence on Golf Course Road in Anglemont. The loud music and partying has been an ongoing problem with one particular resident at that location. Police have notified the owner and, despite the lack of a noise bylaw for the area, it is possible that a mischief charge could be laid under the Criminal Code should circumstances warrant.

Police remind all property owners that their neighbours also have a right to peaceable enjoyment of their property, and to be respectful of others in a high-density residential situation.

Propane pilfered

On Sept. 14, Chase RCMP received a report of five propane cylinders having been stolen from the Race Trac gas station in Squilax. Surveillance video showed that at 4:45 a.m., a dark-coloured, recent model Dodge crew-cab pick-up with a canopy approached the gas station and then left.  The truck re-appeared, and parked near the propane cylinder cage.  The driver of the truck then got out and cut the cage lock with bolt cutters and placed the cylinders in the truck.  A trace of the licence plate showed the truck had been stolen out of Kamloops. The perpetrator appeared to be Caucasian, with a thin build, wearing a dark, heavy-hooded coat, black shoes, blue jeans and a ball cap. If anyone has information concerning this break, enter and theft, please call Chase RCMP at 250-679-3221 or Crimestoppers.


On Sept. 19, at about 9:45 p.m., officers responded to a motor-vehicle incident at Highway 97 near Duck Range Rd. in Monte Lake. Police found a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire that had gone off the road and was lying in the ditch. The 25-year-old driver stated she had lost control in a curve due to wet road conditions. There were no injuries and the car was towed.


On Sept. 19, at about 1 a.m., Chase RCMP received an anonymous impaired driving complaint. Police stopped the suspect vehicle, a Dodge Dakota on the Trans-Canada Highway.

The driver exhibited signs of impairment and, after providing a breath sample which showed he had been drinking alcohol, was issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition. The vehicle was impounded.
