  • Oct. 8, 2015 4:00 p.m.

On Oct. 6, Chase RCMP responded to a complaint of a break-and-enter and theft-of-vehicle that occurred overnight between 11 p.m. and 4:45 a.m. at Spooner Electric Ltd, at 2199 Squilax-Anglemont Rd. in Lee Creek.

The suspect cut off the gate lock and stole a red, 2008 Ford 450 flat-deck truck, B.C. licence plate JD9010, which was carrying a white, 2008 Bobcat, BC licence plate X49175. In addition, approximately 300 feet of industrial wire, a V-plow, inverter and miscellaneous hand tools were also taken.

Surveillance video showed a lone male suspect, approximately six feet tall and 180 pounds, wearing a blue hoodie, dark hat and dark pants.

Anyone having knowledge of this crime is asked to call Chase RCMP at 250-679-3221 or Crimestoppers.

Driver pinned in parking lot

On Oct. 2, Chase RCMP were called to a parking lot collision at Sorrento Plaza in Sorrento.  A large flat-deck truck was reversing from a parking stall, when it struck another vehicle whose driver was just exiting the vehicle.  The driver became pinned between her car door and the door frame.  BC Ambulance responded, and the driver suffered non-life threatening injuries.  The driver of the truck was charged with a Motor Vehicle Act  offence.

Stop sparks fines

On Oct. 2 at 9:30 p.m., Chase RCMP conducted a traffic check stop on Pine Street at Shuswap Avenue. Approximately 30  vehicles were checked for drivers who had been drinking, and for seatbelt usage.

One violation ticket for Drive Contrary to Restriction, Fail to Stop for Police and Fail to Obey Stop Sign under the Motor Vehicle Act was issued.  Police also opened a drug investigation as a result of the traffic stop.

No alcohol in crash

On Oct. 3, Chase RCMP responded to a single-vehicle collision on Squilax-Anglemont Road, just west of the Scotch Creek Bridge.  BC Ambulance also responded, but it appeared the driver had left the area prior to emergency services arrival.

The driver of the small car appeared to have failed to negotiate the right-hand curve in the road, crossing the centre line and coming to a stop against the wires of a power pole. BC Hydro responded and addressed the pole issue while the car was towed from the scene.

The female driver came back to the scene after another motorist had driven her to hospital in Salmon Arm for treatment of minor injuries.

Cause of the crash is still under investigation; however, alcohol consumption has been ruled out.
